Hi neighbours, *still looking*
This week at my school is athletics day and part of the event is that each class needs to take place in the parade. Part of the parade needs to include a banner with our class name and theme etc. So I was wondering if anyone had any big pieces of cardboard we could use to make our banner? The sooner the better as the parade is on Friday! It would be very much appreciated, thank you.

Hello! This is a very special cat, that had a very unlucky start in life and is now looking for a lovely family to adopt him. He was surrendered to a vet clinic because the previous tutor rejected him when he was sick 😓
He is now healthy, happy and looking for a very lovely family.
He is a he (😄), neutered, pure British Short Hair (British blue), has a little bit more than 1 year old and is quite independent (loves cuddles, but also loves playing). Loves people and is friendly with other cats.
There will be no cost for who would like to adopt him, but the new family will be chosen carefully.
Responsible people that are sure that would like this little buddy (and all the commitment an animal demands) please message me 🤩
(I'm sorry I'm being so direct with this, but he deserves an amazing person/family after being surrendered when he most needed someone)
Thanks ❤
