Firefighters rescue kitten from drain in Fairview Heights

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours, a wee kitten stuck down a drain was rescued thanks to efforts by the SPCA and firefighters last week. It took more than three hours to retrieve the 7-week-old kitten from the drain, which proved tricky to access due to it sloping beneath the curb. Firefighters couldn't get into the drain, so had to create a platform for the kitten, which was eventually coaxed out with some food. The male kitten is now being cared for by the SPCA where he will be desexed and put up for adoption.

The Warehouse sustainable?

Marcus from Torbay - Long Bay

This is a joke, right?
Did you see that "sponsored add" where The Warehouse advertises themselves as "sustainable" and "easier on our planet"?
Saw it the other day on the telly and now it's here as well.
What a hoax. The warehouse is as sustainable and easy on the planet as a nuclear power plant. 99% what's on there shelves is made in China and they are not known for sustainability. $$$$$$
