I'm trying to come back!
If we all had the time in the world to spend on PT it would make things so much easier!
I wanted to re-introduce myself as many other people have here also.
I am a veterinary nurse and researcher for a veterinary products development company (although I do miss working in general practice). We haven't released any products yet so I can't say what we are working on, but it will be going global and you will eventually be able to buy our products in your pet store. Part of my job is to check on animal news happening around the globe and I often visit a number of websites related to animals, which is great! But it is also somewhat difficult as it can be hard to determine between business and leisure when it comes to having animals as my number 1 passion.
Other than that, I signed on to PT quite a number of years ago, left for a few years and then got a reminder email on my birthday this year about the site, so I've been back periodically since then.
I currently care for 2 cats (1 new kitten) and 7 goldfish, but have previously owned 4 lop rabbits and 2 budgies. I also work casually for a pet-sitting & feeding service (see my signature) that has started up in Wellington and Christchurch, NZ.
I live in a rental property 15 minutes' walk away from my work with my partner of 8 years and I'm looking forward to the southern hemisphere summer.
Hi to all newcomers to PT - it's a great bunch of people here :)

My name is Lut (=Maya & Inka's Mommy), and I am owned by the 4 cats in my siggie . I am from Belgium
Hey there, glad to see you making yourself known again on PT, i get a bit lonely being the only NZer here, although i am very comfortable amongst my lovely PT friends from all over the world.
I am certain you can make a really worthwhile contribution here, with your experiences and research, here is one for you, my friends here talk about pill pockets, which make it easy to pill your pet, any idea if we have them here yet and can get them and what they are exactly?
Gotta keep you on your toes he he.
Anyhow just saying WELCOME BACK and hope you post more often, you have alot of catching up to do. lol.:);)
Hi everyone else, thanks for your lovely welcomes. Goodness life is busy! I need to dedicate a little time to catching up with PTers on a more regular basis.
Carole, it appears that pill pockets are made by Greenies, which we do have here in NZ. I don't know who we order Greenies through, but if you check with your vet clinic they might be able to order them in.
Cheers everyone, looking forward to reading and posting more :)
Welcome back! It's been a long time!! Glad you're back.
yes i see we have greenies here, but cannot find the pill pockets, i will ask my vet clinic, but i doubt they will order them in, but you never know, depends how popular they become, great to see you stopping by now and then, hope it becomes more often.:)
