Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Jen Trow earned the trust of Charlie the stray, black cat before taking him to the vet. Thankfully, Charlie was microchipped but Jen would have loved one last cuddle with the cat and to have met his family. Have you ever helped an animal for some time before finding its home?

Environmental activists recently protested outside Nelson City Council, calling for the council to stop using the weedkiller, glyphosate, which they said harms bees.
