Here's a lovely video that someone took. This place would be about the middle of the North Island.

a beautiful video of New Zealand

New Zealand or Aotearoa (the Maori name for it) is made up of two large islands and one smaller one (the North Island, South Island and Stewart island) then lots of smaller ones again dotted around them.

Here's some info on the country...

We are about to go into our winter. Or should I say it's already here. The shortest day is around the 22nd June so I can't wait. I'm a sun loving cat you know. Roll on summer I say.

The human went to Aussie a couple of weeks ago She said it was for work but I dont' believe her. I saw the photos of her surfing at Bondi. Yes I couldn't believe it either. She could have taken me instead we had to put up with a Cattery. Grrrr.

I think I have taught her a lesson, when ever she goes away we get up to some sort of mischief. This time, I came back from the cattery with a large wound on my chest???? and I'm not saying how it got there. We were in private cages..... BUT I hate been caged and I'll protest till the cows come home.

The human is watching the wound too closely, it's kind of annoying. It's on my chest right up under my left paw, so it's a tricky place (for the human to check).
I'm a typical tortie, I'm not stupid. I'm very lovable when I want to be, but if you cross me look out. I can turn feral at the drop of a hat then there is no second chances. I'm a lady and should be treated as one. Humph! *Sam sticks her nose in the air*

Oh my cats CAGES how could they cage you a free spirit so carelessly they dropped you into a cage.
Sure hope your chest wound heals quickly

I know, the cheek of it, aye!! The wound is actually quiet large, the human was and is at 2 minds whether I need to see a vet. She is watching it, making sure it's not hot or that there's any swelling. Usually we will go to the vets at the drop of a hat but here it looks ok, paws crossed. I think I've been through enough lately. It almost looks like I was impaled by something. Luckily it didn't go into my chest too far. It's in the white fur so you can see the skin. I look quite bruised in the area the skin is purple instead of it's usual pink self and the scab is 25 x 1cm in size.
Thanks for the good wishes purrs Sam

poor sam!
but don't you think it's a little too dramatic to come home wounded only to make the personnel feel guilty? i really hope that you soon feel (and look) better! (which shouldn't stop you from making her feel miserable for leaving you alone! in a cage!)

Thanks ishtar
AND.....Ooooo yeah! she feels guilty and she should. We struggle if we are locked up in a house never alone a cage. The cage was about 1m wide x 2 m long and then went to the roof but it was still way too small for us. We had a cat tree and three enclosed beds/ hidey holes (one each). But still.... not good enough. She is not allowed to go away, MOL we do something every time she tries this. You'd think she would have learnt by now. She went on the cheap this time grrr. Last few times we have had the heated rooms with a cat door to the outdoor sun room / deck. But that was because of Balty and his arthritis.
Is she trying to tell us something?????
Human here: The cats accommodation always costs way more than ours all up. It's amazing, but then they are worth it, we don't want them stressed too much, spoilt little monsters they are. They live better than us.
What is it with cats they really do have us wrapped around their little paws don't they?

Oh yes my sister girl human said yes we have the all wrapped tight around our paws. She treats her kitties better than some treat their human children. MOL I do hope you are feeling better soon and hopefully you will not need to see the dreaded v-e-t.

I love listening to da birdies they are tasty too :) MOL. Yes and that scene 1:28 is pawsome the human wants to try and do that herself. MOL she never has the time so I don't know how she intends on doing it. But that would also be our favourite shot of the video too. They did take some shots of the Moraki bolders like in scene 3:06 but it was hand held so we can't get that effect :( We really should try this stuff as it's all up the road. (not the place but scenes like it). We hope your summer is going well for you
