With all of our facilities and services closed, we found ourselves faced with the challenge of keeping our residents not only informed, but entertained while cooped up at home. Our answer? Colouring in competitions! Our first Mittens themed competition had nearly 50 entries from Wellington and around the world.
Speaking of the handsome devil, this floofy Turkish Angora was awarded the Keys to the City in May for his services to Wellington – offering free pats to all!
After a challenging few months at Alert Levels 4 and 3, we thought it would be the purrfect way to cheer our residents up. And it worked, becoming our most popular Facebook post of all time, with over 5,000 likes and comments from fans as far away as South Africa, Canada, Australia (and Auckland). The story proved popular across the board with over 21,000 views on our website, and creating a minor media frenzy!
