Duchess Of Silverstream
Introducing 'The Duchess of Silverstream' - our clubs cat.
Duchess adopted us a few years ago. We believe her owners may have left her behind when they moved away from a neighboring property. She quickly became a fixture at the club and in addition to being a mascot of sorts, she has also had a positive effect on the local rodent population. (or should that be a 'negative' effect?)
In July 2015 an enterprising club member secured generous support for The Duchess from Silverstream Pet Vet for which we are very grateful.
This includes free food and medical checks for the duration of her life plus the provision of a cat 'kennel' that she has certainly taken to.
She also had her two minutes of fame with the local media. Follow this link to see an article about Duchess in the Upper Hutt Leader.
With the onset of Covid-19 and lockdown, Duchess was kindly taken in by Denise Goldsmith to ensure she had good company and was well looked after. This was then extended post lockdown with the onset of Winter looming; and has now been made a permanent relocation due to Duchess's advanced years. She will still be visiting the club with Denise once the new season gets under way.
