The Wellington City Council is prosecuting a driver who allegedly polluted the south coast.
"The irresponsible actions of a driver not securing their load last Friday resulted in thousands of polystyrene balls scattered around the south coast, devastating for the environment and marine life, and frustrating the affected communities. We identified the offender thanks to eagle-eyed locals, and have started the process of fining him $200."
Technically it is not a Feathered Friend but this a lovely pic from Rosa Marie after her recent visit to Zealandia. Weta used to be much more common, when was the last time you saw a weta in your garden?
This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.
This should be pretty easy.
