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 email@example.com with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.
Since the start of the year, we've had more than 1,500 people sign-up to become apprentices. Some of them are re-skilling from one profession into a career they love. With skills shortages in key industries, employers are hiring and offering training through the fees-free apprenticeships programme.
Sign-up with Competenz to find your apprenticeship.
