Cats and chickens

Have you ever seen a three-legged cat before? Us either. We’ve seen plenty of dogs, but this is a first. This guy found us at a holiday park in Baylys Beach (their version of a KOA campground, but with cabins and ensuite rooms). Interestingly, he still felt his phantom limb—we saw him trying to scratch himself with his non-existent leg.  He was a lover, though. We gave him a scritch since he couldn’t reach that spot on the side of his neck.
We also came across some spectacular chickens at a roadside rest area on our way up the Kauri coast from Auckland. Just hanging out, hoping for a handout.
