Last October she featured in the Kapiti Observer after she was left at the SPCA's Kapiti shelter while giving birth to me and my three siblings. When I was 8 weeks old I went home with Alison and I've got to say life is sweet! I've got curtains to climb -- oops I mean trees; food, mmm the food, chewy, crunchy, slurpy gravy, flakey fish, all sorts, yum. I'm an awesome hunter -- two flies and a moth yesterday, also Alison's finger, squeeky bird on a string, Alison's finger, stuffed bunny and Alison's finger. I have a friend called Slinky who lives next door. She's scratched my nose twice now -- I've got to get quicker! Also, there's a stunningly beautiful cat who lives in the mirror. She doesn't say much though -- just copies me. Alison caught up with my Mum, Demi, recently. She now lives with Michelle, Ross and 13 year old Lee in Porirua. She has settled in with her new family extremely well and Michelle says she is a much loved addition to their family. She even sleeps on the bed at night, but like me she can make herself comfy wherever wants to sleep. We share a quirky interest in water. Even though it was really sad that Mum got left at the SPCA, imagine if she had just been dumped! What would have become of me? Even if we had survived we wouldn't be healthy and happy and looking forward to a long, loved life. It's all turned out happily thanks to kind people who give their time, love, money, food and forever homes through the SPCA. Thank you all. Do you have an SPCA rescue story? Purrs and sandpaper kisses, from Demi and Taylor.

New lease of life for boating club Shared vision: Artist Kathy Lyall and Otaihanga Boating Club commodore Roy Opie have plans for the renovated boating club. By MARGARET IRVINE With restoration of the Otaihanga Boating Clubrooms almost complete, an artist and tutor has plans to use the building for art classes. Kathy Lyall is gauging potential for day- time classes initially, and says the club- room is convenient for people living in Otaihanga, Paraparaumu Beach and Waikanae Beach. But I would welcome art students from anywhere and at any level of skill. The initial commitment would be to a 10-week course.'' An Otaihanga resident, Lyall said she loved the setting with its views to Kapiti Island and along the river banks. I often set up my easel down by the river and paint away.'' Lyall is working on level three of an art diploma at the Learning Connexion. She has a basic adult teaching qualification and has taught art in Wellington. With the clubrooms close to completion, there is the opportunity for community- based activities to resume in the riverbank venue. Boating club commodore Roy Opie said the rooms were severely damaged in a 2005 flood. The building had since been raised about two metres and completely refurbished. Some work was still to be done and a certificate of compliance required, but once completed the hall should again become a hub for community activities, he said. He said funding was obtained on the basis the rooms would be used for com- munity, education and club purposes. It was designed to be multi-use.'' Contact Kathy Lyall on 021 178 3419.
