Jag is revved up for a new home
Meet Jag, the wildcat ready to settle down.
For the past four years the tabby has been playing the field at Whitireia Community Polytechnic Trades Campus.
But safety concerns concerning the building of a house on campus by trade students means it’s time for Jag to find a family.
Everyone is required to wear hard hats and hivis vests before entering the construction site, but sadly for Jag, none is available in his size.
It will be a difficult goodbye because he has become a favourite among staff and students.
Automotive tutor John Forster said Jag needed a safe home.
‘‘He needs someone with a bit of patience to get him used to being inside. Once he has their trust he will be a lovely boy.’’
Forster started feeding Jag when he was just a wild kitten, and named him after his Jaguar car.
The dedicated animal lover visits the campus every day, including weekends, to feed Jag, despite living in Paraparaumu.
Though he was born wild, Jag is friendly and loves the sun.
He is neutered and vet checked.
