You know there’s that cat you see on the way to the bus stop – the one that rolls around on the footpath and lets you tickle his belly, and you’ve nicknamed him Captain Choicepants? Well, that’s a neighbourhood cat.

Inspired by the Neighbour Cats zines, Petra Jane has created a public Google map of neighbourhood cats around Wellington and beyond.

So if there’s a furry rogue in your ‘hood, add it to the map!


UPDATE: The Neighbourhood Cats map has been shut down. Could this be to foil potential catnappers? Oh well – you’ll just have to create a map in your mind.
