Rachel described their method of choosing music as pivotal to their success. We find a song that tells a story, then we dance the story, she said. Runner-up Jessie, of Otari School in Wilton, said she had put in a lot of prep- aration. I worked really hard, and it all pays off. A People s Choice award, via event sponsor Kapiti Pak n Save s Facebook page, went to tap dancers Caleb Red- stall and Daniel Van Eijck, both 13. Organiser Michelle Laurenson said the event had been successful in raising close to $6000 for the trust, but raising community awareness of the project had also been important. We made a million dollars in awareness, she said. Prizes included $2000 cash for the winning act, a Kingdom Music voucher and mobile phone for the runner up, and $500 for the People s Choice winner. A gift basket donated by Sir Peter Jackson was awarded for sportsmanship to guitarist Tim Smith who dealt professionally with an on-stage technical hitch. Judges included former Fair Go front man Kevin Milne, musicians Andrew London and Steve McDon- ald, and dance experts Tanemahuta Gray, Jan Bolwell and Erola Whitcombe. Mr Milne enjoyed the judging experience but said he would struggle to say anything negative to talented young people giving a per- formance their best.

Kapiti SPCA is asking anyone who recognises the cats to come forward. Shaggy cats shock By TASHA BLACK Kapiti SPCA is appalled at the state of two abandoned cats found in Raumati South. Animal welfare inspector Peter McCallum said the persian cats were handed in on Wednesday afternoon by a policeman. The officer had been waved down by two teenagers in Raumati South holding a cage with the two cats squeezed inside. When the cats arrived at Kapiti SPCA with horrifically matted fur covered in faeces and urine, staff were so struck by their condition they immedi- ately went to work shaving one of the felines. Mr McCallum said the first cat that was shaved, named Dudley by staff, was probably the worst case of matted fur on a cat he had seen. Nearly half a kilogram of fur was shaved off the cat, with some fur matted 10 centimetres thick. If the weather had been warmer it s likely the cats would have been fly-blown with eggs laid on them, he said. They are so very matted, you just wouldn t believe it. They really were in quite a state. The other cat, known to staff as Buzz, had fur so matted it had peeled away in clumps and new fur was growing under- neath. Buzz was due to be shaved on Friday. Staff suspect the cats fur had been left unbrushed and became matted over four to six months, however, the cats were only thought to be in the cage for a short time because there was no urine or faeces in it, said Mr McCallum. You can t miss the fact these cats were in considerable dis- comfort and really bad shape. The cats were obviously dumped but were calm and handleable . The SPCA inspector said he was disappointed not only because the animals had been dumped, but also because the owners had not sought help from theSPCA,avetoracat groomer. Mr McCallum is appealing to the two girls that found the cats to come forward so he can gar- ner some more information, and anyone who may recognise the cats to help find the owners. He understood the cats to have been found in their cage at a reserve in Raumati South. There were several breaches of the welfare act and the owners could face six months imprisonment and/or a $25,000 fine. Mr McCallum said the SPCA will look after the cats and vaccinate them.
