Pet of the Day: Siam the klepto-cat

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

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 yourpet@dompost.co.nz with a recent photo. Please remember to say what suburb you live in.

(Not A) Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

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?

Looking for "Falter Tom and the Waterboy"

Pippa from Carterton District

Desperately seeking this old recording, it was broadcast on National Radio and sold on cassette. I can't get a copy via National Radio or Archives so hoping someone may have a copy they no longer want in the back of a cupboard or gathering dust (for sentimental reasons 💕).
