Feline Rights New Zealand is a response to ongoing anti-Cat propaganda in the mainstream media being spread by eco-extremist organisations including The Morgan Foundation, Forest and Bird, Wellington City Council, Polhill Restoration Group, and others soon to be named on this site. Our mission is to seek out and counteract the ongoing propaganda intended to demonize Cats, provide an alternative to educate citizens and counteract the lies being spread about Cats by eco-extremists and the complicit factions of the mainstream media in New Zealand.
We also seek to keep the public informed of the plans to place restrictions on Cats and restrictions on citizens who keep Cats by Local Government and the New Zealand Government, and actively oppose what they are trying to do. Together we will create a network amongst those of us who love Cats, share ideas, co-ordinate political strategy and tactics to defeat the eco-extremists who's ultimate aim is to deny citizens of their right to keep Cats and put as many Cats to death as they can.
Right now, the intention is to get the basic information Cat lovers need to know out on the web, and bring Cat lovers together to actively oppose the eco-extremism which now is a clear and present threat to us and our families.

What Is Antifelinisim?
What is antifelinism? It's similar to antisemitism. In the case of antifelinism they are not out to eradicate a section of society on the basis of race and faith. Antifelinism is about eradicating an entire species, the most noble of species, the Cat.
With their plans for compulsory identification, curfews and mass exterminations, the comparison to antisemitism is crystal clear. All good New Zealanders of moral fortitude must make every effort to oppose what these extremist individuals are attempting to do, as sure as our forefathers made every effort to oppose the National Socialist regime in World War 2.
First, we have closed the public forum at Yahoo Groups. This is because Spark has chosen to move its email services from Yahoo to local provider SMX. Yahoo requires a two stage authentication process to create a new Yahoo ID, the second stage of which requires one to receive and respond via txt message on a mobile phone. We do not have and will never have mobile phones, therefore we cannot create a new Yahoo ID to access the forum as administrators, so the public forum is now closed.
At a later stage we may set up a new forum within our site.
We also found the new xtra webmail site to be unusable due to poor design. Clearly they have optimised it for mobile devices, however on a standard desktop web browser we found their webmail GUI to be clunky and next to unusable for us. We also found the IMAP settings now required for xtra mail to be incompatible with the email client we use, which resulted in a stack of issues for us. Two ways one can look at this. From perspective of the developers at Spark, we are apparently using an 'outdated' browser for accessing webmail and an 'outdated' email client for sending and receiving email.
Our perspective is Spark have failed to provide retroactive compatibility.
Spark also failed to migrate our email archive to the new service at SMX as they claimed they would. While we have been smart enough to keep our mail archive on disk and this failure on the part of Spark has not effected us, this failure to deliver on promises is quite unforgivable and because of this we'd encourage anyone who is considering signing up with Spark to consider all other options, especially if you need email services that actually work as they should.
All we can suggest to the know-it-all developers is to stop being lazy, make your way over to the World Wide Web Consortium website and learn to construct websites properly. If you are one of the developers out there who are certain you are correct, we suggest you read Tim Seifert's seminal essay "Morons In Webspace".
The simplest way for us to deal with the issues Spark have created with their new 'updated' version of their xtra email service is to conduct email via our own domain. The new email address is admin (at) felinerights.org.
Last time we checked in January 2017, the membership of Liman's 'conservation' group was a total of 20 individuals. Compare this figure to the population of Miramar: 9,588 at the 2013 census. Te Motu Kairangi are a miniscule fraction of a percent of the population, they are a small group of extremists imposing their will on an entire district.
This feature article of antifelinist propaganda by journalist Sam Duff appeared in the Cook Strait News on 2nd February 2015, just four months after the inception of the National Cat Management Strategy Group. The Cook Strait News along with The Wellingtonian are 'community newspapers' delivered free to every mailbox in the Wellington region. One can have a 'no circulars' sign on one's letterbox, yet regardless of one's wishes, a copy will be delivered each week without fail. In truth, it's a propaganda tabloid created by the ruling caste, distributed with the intention of manufacturing consensus amongst those members of the public who are challenged to define objective reality for themselves.
In other words, they make sure everyone gets a copy so their propaganda is spread for social engineering purposes.
The publication of this article was carefully timed to synchronise with Morgan Foundation project manager Jessi Morgan's submission to Wellington City Council's consultation on the 'Draft Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan 2014'. The article was published in Cook Strait News on Monday 2nd February 2015, and the consultation process closed on Friday 6th March 2015. We've sourced a copy of Morgan's submission, In it, she cites the alleged killing of 18 tui, supposedly by a Cat.
Normally we'll link to articles, but due to Cook Strait News hosting it's back issues on issuu.com, one of the most poorly coded and unusable websites we have ever visited, we've scanned and posted the entire article here. If issuu.com has an issue with that, we suggest they learn to construct websites properly, then we will be prepared to link to their site.
The article by journalist Sam Duff begins by subjecting us to loaded language .
Wikipedia defines loaded language as "wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes". We quote: "The movements of a sneaky 'moggy' with a taste for killing are being tracked as it slinks, creeps and skulks it's way through the Miramar bush"... an object lesson in loaded language. Liman claims his environmental extremist group found the remains of 18 dead tui and as there were some Cat paw prints they assume a single Cat killed them all. That's interesting, lets compare the opinion of Joakim Liman with the opinion of Landcare Research wildlife ecologist John Innes who stated in this article "I've worked with tui restoration in Hamilton for a decade, and I've never had an account of a tui, one of our radio-banded birds, being killed by a Cat".
We agree with John Innes, we've kept Cats for 50 years and we have never witnessed a Cat capture a tui. They are larger than a blackbird and as tree dwellers, it's rare to see a tui at ground level. We have noted tui will fly into windows and be killed by the impact with the glass. Our understanding is this happens when tui have dined on fermented nectar and fly while intoxicated. The Wikipedia entry states tui "have even been known to mob harriers and magpies". The harrier is a large hawk, and magpies are well known to attack humans. It stands to reason that as tui are prepared to take on harriers and magpies, in most instances tui would certainly be able to defend themselves from a Cat.
Our view is it is extremely unlikely a single Cat could be responsible for killing 18 tui. Joakim Liman is either lying on behalf of Gareth Morgan's 'conservation' cult, or more likely the culprits would be stoat, ferret or weasel. The remaining carrion will have attracted all sorts of critters, including the local Cats, hence the alleged paw prints the group claim they found.
The article proceeds to use further loaded language to define the location as a 'crime scene' and the Cat who supposedly killed the tui as a 'four legged criminal'. We also note Liman demonstrating his ignorance of the law by promoting the idea of 'feral' verses 'domestic' and omitting the other definition of 'stray' as defined under the the Animal Welfare Act. Liman also demonstrates his ignorance by assuming all domestic Cats have a collar: "They do not yet know if the white Cat, which has a black tip on it's tail, is a 'feral' or domestic Cat, as they cannot tell whether it is wearing a collar". Later in the article he states: "Owners could attach a multitude of bells to their collars".
A few words on Cat collars from Feline Rights to Joakim Liman: Most domestic Cats do not actually have collars and that's a good call, collars are well known to be a hazard for Cats, as documented in the following article from the Nelson Mail.
Liman parrots the antifelinist Gareth Morgan and states "A really easy thing to do would be to just close the door and keep them inside". Well, we'd like to see the ignorant antifelinists confined to quarters forever and see how they like the experience of permanent confinement. Of great interest to us was Joakim Liman's statement that "people should at least keep their Cats inside during the day because that is when tui and other natives are out and about". Alright, compare that statement with the published opinion of none other than Karen Fifield, the CEO of Wellington Zoo .
The above link is one sick and twisted article from Karen Fifield which includes an array of poisonous nonsensical lies. For example this insulting quote: "Microchipping Cats helps to make sure that Cats get the love and care that they deserve". By stating such, the intended inference is anyone who does not engage in microchipping does not love or care for their Cats. Well pardon us you old harpy but we've been keeping Cats for decades prior to you importing yourself from Australia and our Cats are some of the most loved and cared for Cats in town thanks, no microchip required. Do you think we are stupid? We know the only reason you people want compulsory microchipping is to legitimise the murder of countless Cats, but we digress.
The quote from Karen Fifield that is important at this point is: "for the past nine years we have been asking our visitors to think about how they can be responsible 'pet' 'owners' through two simple requests – keeping their Cats in at night, and keeping their dogs on a lead". How interesting, on one hand we have Zoo employee Joakim Liman saying 'keep your Cats indoors during the day' and on the other hand we have Zoo CEO Karen Fifield saying 'keep your Cats in at night'. Without a doubt, the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing, and this comparison of published statements amounts to indisputable proof that what is being expounded on both counts is nothing more than opinionated antifelinist dogma.
Further evidence there is no consensus amongst 'conservationists' when it comes to the draconian proposition of 'Cat curfews' comes in the form of the following article published on the Zealandia Sanctuary website. We quote: "Do you have a Cat? Consider keeping your Cat indoors during the day". We published a link to the original article a few months ago and within a couple of weeks the page had mysteriously vanished from their site. Quite possibly the reason it was removed is because they noticed Feline Rights was linking to the page and at the time Wellington City Council was planning to impose night curfews on Cats. We've sourced a copy of the article which was removed, it's now available for download below.
Liman claims 12 million native birds are killed by Cats in NZ each year, we'd love to know where he got that figure from, until we have the actual peer reviewed scientific documentation before us we'll assume he has pulled that figure out of his... hat.
Joakim Liman imported himself from Sweden in 2009. In our opinion the easiest option for all is for him to return to Sweden. While we are all too pleased to have people immigrate to New Zealand, we do need for new New Zealanders to integrate themselves into New Zealand culture. We don't know how you do things in Sweden cuzzie, but for generations our people have kept Cats, they are our beloved family members. If you wish to be a New Zealander you need to understand this fact. Integrate and accept New Zealand culture, including our Cats or as we say in Aotearoa...
"On yer bike mate", which in this context means go back to where you came from.
'Predator-Free' Capital Project
On 26 September 2016, Wellington City Council announced a joint collaboration with Greater Wellington Regional Council and the Next Foundation . The Next Foundation is a philanthropic environmental and 'educational' organisation. It is connected with the Morgan cult via their mutual association with the R & D group 'Zero Invasive Predators'. The plan is to attempt to make Wellington 'predator free'. They state that rats and stoats are the target, but the truth is all non indigenous animals and birds will be targeted. Rats, stoats, opossums, Cats and hedgehogs for starters and if we take a look at the section on non-native birds over at the Te Motu Kairangi website we see sparrows, starlings, blackbirds and rosellas are all apparently on the 'hit' list. We also understand pigeons and ducks are on the council's hit list of critters to be 'vanished'.
Liman cites non-native birds as undesirables because in his view they are carriers of 'diseases'.
Citing disease as an issue is old form of hate propaganda. In Der Stürmer, a weekly propaganda tabloid of the Nazi era, quite similar in some ways to today's Cook Strait News, The antisemite Julius Streicher often cited disease as one of the issues that supposedly made Jewish people undesirables in the twisted opinion of the National Socialist regime.
Spot The Difference If You Can
The idea is to make a start with the turf Liman's group has claimed, namely the Miramar peninsula, then proceed with further environmentalist pogroms against all non-indigenous fauna across the entire city. Later, the plan is to eradicate all non indigenous plants, Liman is already suggesting citizens aim for at least 25% of the plants in their gardens to be native plants.
Wellington City Council enviro-fascists celebrate the 'pest-free capital' initiative
The press release from the WCC propaganda office states: "Without introduced predators, birds, lizards, geckos and other native fauna will be able to grow and thrive in Wellington, bringing significant environmental, social and economic benefits".
This statement is a very odd piece of spin from the environmentalist minority. For those who would care to look, native wildlife already abounds in the city, therefore no micromanagement is required. "Economic benefits" refers to the erroneous assumption that more birds = more tourists = more earnings from tourists. The majority of tourists could not care less about birds and those who do will visit Zealandia sanctuary, Wellington Zoo, or one of the national parks. "Social benefits"? There aren't any, all these misguided extremist individuals do is draw attention to themselves as they proceed to actively divide the community and sew the seeds of social unrest.
We were not surprised to see Cat hater Myfanwy Emeny present and we are in the process of investigating the rest of them. It is clear WCC Environment Partnership Leader Tim Park has a close association with some of the most infamous antifelinists in New Zealand. Over at the Forest and Bird blog we found the following article by the antifelinist Polhill Paul.
A three day bush bromance with none other than antifelinists Geoff Simmons and Polhill Paul is not a good look for a senior member of council staff. The closer we look, the more cronyism, conspiracy and conflict of interest becomes apparent.
Amateur environmental extremist group Wildlife Foxton Trust first came to our attention at the end of April 2016 when a report was published in the Manawatu Standard detailing the group's wish to engage in 'Cat control' activities. In true Fairfax Media fake news form, the header image to this article of a Cat with a captured bird was not even taken in New Zealand.
John Girling spoke before Horizons Regional Council (HRC) in a submission to the HRC regional 'pest' management plan, claiming 'feral' Cats in the Foxton area "kill birds and cause a lot of trouble". The group planned a survey to "consult the community on possible 'feral' Cat control options" and to document all domestic Cats in the Foxton area, prior to a 'trial' involving compulsory microchipping of domestic Cats. Girling is quoted in the article as stating "Our approach is we would like to microchip companion Cats to protect them from 'feral' Cats and the 'disease' carried by 'feral' Cats". He stated the group was considering approaching the antifelinst Gareth Mogan's Morgan Foundation for funding. HRC chairman Bruce Gordon asked if the people catching Cats would be able to check if the Cats they planned to catch have a microchip ID. Girling replied that "everything caught in their traps was brought back to their centre".
Oh Really? Keep this statement from John Girling in mind folks, and read on...
At this point we challenge John Girling to explain to the public exactly how the compulsory microchipping of domestic Cats can protect them from the supposed 'diseases' they claim are carried by 'feral' Cats. The fact is a microchip offers no such protection and microchips fail John. John Girling is just another antifelinist, he lies with the lies of the Morgan cult, and he insults all intelligent New Zealanders with his assumption the citizens of New Zealand are stupid. Undoubtably what Wildlife Foxton Trust really seek is license from Horizons Regional Council to conduct the wholesale slaughter of all Cats they catch who do not return an ID reference on a microchip scanner.
Prior to Girling's submission, the Morgan cult engaged in collective lobbying of Horizons Regional Council. In all, the council received a total of 94 submissions to the plan. 47 regarding 'feral' Cats, and 45 of these from the antifelinist Gareth Morgan's hate group. Most of the submissions were from outside of the Manawatu region. On 11 May 2016 Girling was back before the HRC Environment Committee. His presentation included the alleged "problems with 'feral' Cats killing birds on the estuary".
In June 2016, Horizons Regional Council declined to actively engage in the Feline holocaust the Morgan cult and John Girling hoped for and chose not to make any changes regarding the classification of 'feral' Cats. The antifelinist Jessi Morgan stated "As soon as we take Gareth away from it people will listen, rather than say 'oh he just wants to kill all the Cats'".
Jessi Morgan, take notice Feline Rights will investigate and document every person who is involved with the orchestrated libelous propaganda campaign against the Cats. Antifelinism is a form of extremism that is just as bad as antisemitism, and all involved with it can expect to be treated with the same level of disdain afforded to antisemites and other racists.
By July 2016, Wildlife Foxton Trust's plan to trap and execute as many Cats as possible had reached an impasse due to a lack of funding. John Girling stated "We are not able to address the 'feral' Cat issue at the moment because of 'political sensitivity', I think they call it". You think? Hey John, what the hell are you doing on the Community Board if you cannot see the obvious? The majority of New Zealanders don't want far left private environmental fascists rounding up their Cats. We love our Cats, they are members of our families, it's not quantum physics, it's common sense. If you cannot grasp the basics of common sense then the ideal is for you to tender your resignation from the Community Board immediately. Girling stated their intention is to be 'patient', and indicated they still intend to "carry out a survey of companion Cat owners to find out what animals they owned and what they thought of control measures".
Feline Rights urges residents of the Foxton area to refuse to participate in the so called 'survey'. This group is a private environmentalist cult and they have no right to 'survey' residents regarding the number of Cats they keep. The right thing to do is formally trespass them from your places of residence. In our view what they are really doing is taking a census of your Cats, noting where Cats are and marking them for execution at a later stage, just like the Nazis did to the Jewish people.
Back in October 2015, Horizons Regional Council supplied 40 traps to Wildlife Foxton Trust who first used them for the purposes of indoctrinating children into the ideology of environmental extremism, prior to the environmental brownshirts setting the traps. These traps are "tippy traps", they are live capture traps. John Girling stated "Any creatures caught will be brought back to our depot where they will be dealt with humanely as overseen by our own veterinary surgeon." We'd love to put a name and face to the vet, because if you live in the Foxton area and your Cat mysteriously vanishes, chances are this will be the vet who has put your Cat to death, simply for being a Cat. Email us if you know who this vet is.
Indoctrination Of Children14 March 2016 - Colourful 'Pest' Control Project Starts For Foxton
A week before the first report on Wildlife Foxton Trust's proposal to conduct antifelinist activities appeared in the Manawatu Standard, another article was published in the Horowhenua Mail. Wildlife Foxton Trust have been indoctrinating children into the ideology of the far left environmental fascist movement. John Girling is a retired industrial psychologist, which suggests to us he's thought through his plan of action carefully, and has a fair idea of how to go about it. Indoctrinate the children now, in the interest of endless proliferation of the dogma of environmental extremism through all future generations.
While we've been investigating Wildlife Foxton Trust since they first publicised their antifelinist sentiments in April 2016, we've refrained from publishing much about them. However, on 2nd February 2017 a report appeared in the Manawatu Standard. A witness discovered six of the traps painted by the children of Foxton Beach School containing skeletal remains and decomposing deceased animals. Wildlife Foxton Trust had failed to check the traps daily as required by law and the trapped animals had suffered a horrible death from thirst and starvation.
The witness quoted John Girling as saying to her "they were pests and he wouldn't mind leaving them there indefinitely". Girling claimed his comment had been 'skewed' by the witness, but was quoted as stating to the Fairfax journalist "I did say it's not a big problem, they are just pests." He also stated "the traps were supposed to be checked once or twice a week".
Well, that's wrong for a start, the law requires live traps to be checked daily. HRC 'habitat protection co-ordinator' Aaron Madden is quoted in the article as stating "volunteers were informed about the importance of checking traps daily", Aaron Madden of HRC also confirmed "It was possible for hedgehogs and Cats to enter the traps but checking them daily should allow them to be released".
Curiouser and curiouser, HRC appear to want any hedgehogs trapped to be released, yet in the article in the Horowhenua Mail dated 14 March 2016 Girling proudly states "Four hedgehogs had already been caught in the mustalid traps".
Update 13 February 2017
We contacted Horizons Regional Council via email regarding the matter of hedgehogs. Aaron Madden of HRC promptly responded stating the report published in the Manawatu Standard on 2 February 2017 is incorrect on their position regarding hedgehogs. HRC states hedgehogs are a known threat to native wildlife and thus are one of the 'pests' being targeted. HRC also states "The intention was to release any Cats (or any other 'pet') caught and euthanize the 'pests' caught".
Manawatu SPCA inspector and manager Danny Auger stated "if people weren't checking the traps they were failing with their obligations". Ministry for Primary Industries animal welfare manager Kate Littin also confirmed, when using live traps there is a legal requirement for traps to be checked daily.
John Girling stated "the traps were supposed to be checked once or twice a week", therefore it's clear Wildlife Foxton Trust is willfully in violation of the Animal Welfare Act. Undoubtedly an example needs to made of these people by way of prosecution. Feline Rights will follow the matter up with the relevant authorities to ensure all involved are brought to justice.
On 10 February 2017, NZ Herald published an update on the environmental extremists active in the Foxton area. Horizons Regional Council have halted the live trapping activities of Wildlife Foxton Trust and withdrawn the traps from use.
Wildlife Foxton Trust is quoted in the article as stating "it is looking at whether kill traps could replace the live-capture traps". Aaron Madden of Horizons Regional Council stated "the downside of kill traps was the possibility of killing pets, which is why live-capture traps were used in the first place".
Feline Rights compliments HRC for taking action and withdrawing the live capture traps from use. However, as it appears Wildlife Foxton Trust will now attempt to proceed with it's trapping activities using 'kill' traps, the problem has the potential to go from bad to worse. 'Kill' traps like the ones illustrated above do not kill instantaneously, they maim and the animals caught still die a slow death from hunger and thirst or possibly from infection of the wound.
If these kill traps are allowed to be deployed it is only a matter of time before a companion animal is killed or maimed. We believe traps such as these may also pose a threat to protected native species. The media and animal welfare groups are now watching closely. It's not going to be a good look for anyone involved with the matter when a companion animal falls victim to the incompetence of the amateur environmental extremist movement.
As Wildlife Foxton Trust have already demonstrated their inability to monitor live capture traps they have set, we implore Horizon's Regional Council to cease all support for Wildlife Foxton Trusts trapping activities, and revoke or deny permission for them to use any form of traps.
What has happened in the Foxton area is an object lesson to local governmental bodies nationwide on how things can go terribly wrong when local government outsources 'pest control' activities to private environmental extremist groups and we feel the example of Foxton behoves local government to have a total rethink on the value of private-public partnerships with amateur environmental groups when it comes to truly humane animal management.
Wildlife Foxton Trust = Amateur Environmental Extremists
Do not support them, do not donate to them, make all involved with the organisation feel uncomfortable.
30 January 2017
Don't Bank On Kiwibank
Kiwibank is well known for it's association with multimillionaire antifelinist and political aspirant Gareth Morgan via the GMK KiwiSaver scheme, Morgan sold the business to Kiwibank for the tidy sum of 50 million dollars.
Back in September 2016, Kiwibank entered into a partnership with Predator Free New Zealand Trust and Department of Conservation. Kiwibank decided this was a worthwhile cause that might just drum up some business. They failed to consider the moral, ethical and political hot potato they were grasping at when they chose to support environmental extremism.
The press release from Predator Free New Zealand dated 5th September 2016 says Kiwibank will contribute to the unachievable environmental extremist goal of 'Pest Free New Zealand by 2050'. We understand Kiwibank will donate 1.7 million dollars toward environmental extremism which will be used to fund some of the private eco-fascist extremist 'community groups' which have sprung up all over the place like a plague of poisonous mushrooms and also fund Department of Conservation dogs. There are two types of 'conservation' dogs, 'protected species dogs' who sniff out the location of protected species and 'pest detection dogs'.
The press release states: "Pest detection dogs have been used to indicate the presence of target predators (stoats, rodents or Cats). In the majority of situations, these dogs indicate the subtle sign or scent of the target animal rather than locate the live animal. This information is then used to attempt to eradicate the animal or animals by other methods like trapping, poisoning or shooting."
They suggest 'pest detection dogs' are used only for detection purposes however if we read the words of commenter Paul Martinson on the Polhill Restoration Trust Page over at the Halo Project Website, the real use of conservation dogs is clarified.
We quote Paul Martinson from the Polhill Restoration Trust page:
"If I can say this; maybe someone can obtain or train a DOC certified predator dog for feral Cats within the Halo and put it to work. I've had one..and it is an effective way to eradicate the trap shy animals. They are smaller in number than stoats but very destructive."
Lets get clear, the so called 'halo' around Zealandia Sanctuary is a residential area and these evil people contemplate turning loose Department of Conservation 'predator dogs' to kill any Cat the dogs can find.
A second article by Jessy Edwards appeared on the Idealog website "in association with Kiwibank" on 6th December 2016. In December, Kiwibank also began displaying posters in their branches promoting the Department of Conservation dogs.
This is an interesting article, both telling when it comes to the mindset of those engaging themselves in trapping, and also chilling when one notes the images of children being indoctrinated into ideology of enviro-fascism. Killing things is nothing to be proud of kids! Kim Waghorn, Kiwibank marketing manager is quoted as stating she found the act of engaging in trapping "weirdly addictive". It's interesting Kim feels this way about trapping because in the following article over at the Predator Free NZ website we find the following quotes from Nick Tansley of Gareth Morgan's Halo Project:
"Trapping brings people closer together. Everyone's working together (towards the goal of Wellington as a predator-free capital) and helping each other out." He's even heard of people perched on their porches armed with slug pellets. "It gets quite addictive."
Back at the beginning of April 2016, Nick was a guest speaker on "Enhancing The Halo" at the WCC Nursery open day. One of our supporters attended the meeting and when a member of the audience asked if her kitten could get caught in the rat trap. He assured her: "We're not out to get Cats". Yet on the same page we find the following chilling quotes:
"What if you have a cat or five? There are cat-friendly traps too."
"Tansley points out that you can still own a Cat while considering the native wildlife: microchip your cat so they can be identified in a Cat roundup" Nick either blatantly lied when he stated "We're not out to get Cats", or he's very confused.
Here is one of the Department of Conservation dog handlers and his dog, one Brad Windust of the Northland environmental extremist group Bay Bush Action Trust. At last count, their website states they have murdered 81 Cats. Up to now we have chosen not to publish any horror pics. However as Kiwibank has chosen to fund despicable bloodthirsty individuals like Brad Windust, and possibly Kim Waghorn has no idea of what Kiwibank is funding, we will publish some of the photographic evidence we have collected.
CAUTION: THE FOLLOWING LINK CONTAINS HORRIFIC IMAGES OF MURDERED CATS
Before proceeding we'll respond to the quotes above from Nick Tansley. You fascists of the private environmental extremist movement have absolutely no right to conduct "Cat roundups" within urban and residential areas at all. We knew from the outset the Green eco-nazis at Wellington City Council planned to outsource the murder of countless Cats within residential areas to amateur environmental groups and later we received confirmation of this via leaked legal consultation documents. For the record we strongly disapprove of citizens sitting on their porches armed with any weapon.
The plan is to ride roughshod over the Animal Welfare Act and designate any Cat without a microchip ID as 'feral' and allow private environmental extremist groups to conduct an ongoing campaign of mass murder against people's beloved Feline family members. All of this talk of microchips 'to keep your Cats safe' is a red herring, Without a doubt, the extremist environmentalists want to kill them all. So if you love Cats and keep Cats it is your moral duty to stand up to those like Nick who openly admit they are addicted to killing.
Now, the Halo Project is an organisation that was set up by none other than the antifelinist Gareth Morgan, and we were not at all surprised to discover a mugshot of his daughter, the antifelinist Jessi Morgan a bit further down the page in the idealog article. Seems she is the spokesperson for Predator Free New Zealand. No surprises there, wherever you see anything to do with environmental extremism you can bet the Morgan cult has a dirty great greasy finger in the metaphorical pie. Jessi Morgan is quoted as stating "It’s the gamification of how many rats did you catch? that is so addictive". How interesting, there's that 'addictive' word again.
We feel any form of addiction is something to be concerned about, especially so if what one is addicted to involves killing. From the esoteric perspective there's all sorts of reasons a person might find themselves in the position of being addicted to the desire to kill. However, most people have no understanding of esoteric matters, so for now we will put aside our some 35+ years practical hands-on experience with thought-forms & tulpas, larvae, lower elementaries and lower astral beings, our understanding of how the release of etheric and astral force from the victim at the time of death can give a person a 'hit', not to mention the sciences of magick and demonology in general, lest we be red carded with standard response of the ignorami, namely 'conspiracy theory', which for the record is term originally seeded into the common vocabulary for the purposes of damage control by none other than the CIA.
So for now, we'll just stick to the mainstream and suggest anyone who is addicted to something is getting some form of 'hit' each time they engage in whatever the activity is they find to be addictive and addictions of any form tend to be progressive. For example, watching a little 'harmless' pornography can easily progress to stealing lingerie, stalking female members of the community and if unchecked can eventually progress to engaging in the act of rape.
Our view is some of these people who have an addiction to killing small furry animals will quite possibly progress to killing larger creatures or even human beings. That is the nature of addictive behavior, it tends to progress. So, to Kim Waghorn, Nick Tansley, Jessi Morgan and others of their ilk we say: Consult with your doctor, get a referral note to mental health services and at least participate in a mental health assessment, because we have no doubt that folks like you people have a few screws loose. Kiwibank likes to think of the unattainable predator free goal along the lines of the United States Apollo moonshots. "Going to the moon" they say. More like a pack of flippin' loonies! Get help before you do something extra nasty while servicing your killing addiction and you find yourselves in a mental healthcare facility or appearing before the court.
All we can add is if you do not want to be a part of this madness there are other options for banking available, and changing who you bank with is a fair way to protest, just be sure to tell Kiwibank why you chose an alternative option for banking.
Today we've added part two of the Rise of Antifelinism in New Zealand series. This article covers the trading of Cat skins on Trade Me. We caution readers this article contains disturbing images. Working on this article has provided some insights into the stressful work done by staff employed in law enforcement in the interest of bringing criminals to justice.
Bottom line is it has not been fun working on this one.
We'll leave the links to the pages on Victoria University and Wellington Zoo here on the front page until we update our layout
Update: 14 October 2016
We're very pleased to feature a response to the Draft New Zealand National Cat Management Strategy Strategic Implementation Consultation Document presented by our friends Northland Cats In Balance.
The summary is published online here:Northland Cats In Balance - Response to National Cat Management Strategy Group
The full 17 page response to NCMSG is available for download in pdf format on the summary page. This is a very well researched paper in favor of the Cats of New Zealand, which dispels a lot of lies being expounded by both the environmental movement and certain groups and individuals who claim to be advocates of animal welfare.
Gratitude to Northland Cats In Balance for your efforts on behalf of the Cats.

45 MINUTES SUFFERING FOR A CAT TO BE DISPATCHED
Hey Simon, at a couple of dollars for each Cat your staff kill, is this more
cost-effective than Zyklon-B?
The Animal Welfare Act is administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries. Marie Guigou's role is to advise on the Act to NCMSG and also to advise Government via the Ministry as to how Government might adjust the Act to facilitate the mass extermination of all Cats who are not registered with NZCAR.
Do not be fooled by a pretty face, her intentions are as nefarious as the rest of them
NZ Companion Animal Council (NZCAC) will be convening for their 2016 conference at the Brentwood Hotel in Kilbernie, Wellington on 21st/22nd September 2016. NZCAC are key players in the anti-Cat propaganda campaign presently being laid on the NZ public via the mainstream media, and intimately connected with the anti-Felinist organisation, the National Cat Management Strategy Group (NCMSG). (1)
While we have yet to confirm, our sources tell us that NZCAC Chair Barry Helem is part of the NCMSG. He's also Chief Executive Officer for SPCA Canterbury. So far as we can tell, it appears Barry chooses to sit at the same table as Morgan Foundation general manager and professional Cat hater Geoff Simmons. Our view is until everyone involved recognises they are sitting at the same table as members of an environmental extremist hate group and distances themselves from the anti-Felinist Morgan cult, NZCAC are not in any way a friend of the Cats.
Because of this, we strongly encourage citizens not to support NZCAC.
Checking their conference brochure we recognise a couple of obvious individuals who have been actively engaging themselves in the promotion of the anti-Felinist social engineering campaign.
On day 1 - 21st September they are running a module on 'Cat Management',and guess who is speaking.
None other than NCMSG mouthpiece, Callum Irvine and WCC Urban 'Ecology' Team Leader and anti-Felinist, Myfanwy Emeny. She who consulted with law firm DLA Piper on 'regulating' Cats who are supposedly 'harming native wildlife' on behalf of Wellington City Council, and has actively been engaging in the promotion of Morgan cult anti-Felinist doctrine to other councils, paid for in part by Wellington ratepayers. While we have yet to check, we figure ratepayers will be footing the bill for Myfanwy Emeny to be present and speak at the conference. Both Callum Irvine and Myfanwy Emeny have been working together in the dispensation of Morgan cult dogma in other regions.
The other two speaking at the module are Dr Sarah Zito who appears to be a scientist presently engaged in psychological studies of those who serve stray and colony Cats and Peter Dormon of The Lonely Miaow Association. We wondered what a fellow Feline welfare worker is doing associating himself on the same bill as two well recognised anti-Felinists, so we investigated.
Following publication of this article, a supporter emailed us with this information:
"I cannot believe that Peter Dormon of Lonely Miaow Association is featuring as a speaker. His Association kills colony Cats and does not believe in TNR. This is unbelievable. He is a huge supporter of Gareth Morgan. My vets in Auckland refused to kill the Cats and would not have him as a client."
Then we found this...
A comment by Peter Dormon himself in response to the article entitled "Cat Flap" by the infamous Polhill Paul published as feature article in the 27 August 2016 edition of The Listener. We Quote...
"I am delighted the New Zealand Companion Animal Council has put together a National Cat Management Group"
"With a key draft strategic goal of “No stray or feral cats” by 2025".
Peter Dormon waxes lyrical over WCC voting to implement compulsory microchipping of Cats and states research he's reviewed suggests there are some 1.2 million domestic Cats in New Zealand who "still require a chip". So let's do some basic number crunching. Vets we have spoken to have quoted around $100 all up to microchip a Cat.(consultation, the chip and registration with NZCAR).
Our estimate is there's about 120 Million dollars to be made from forcing a microchip on every NZ domestic Cat. The vets get their cut, the environmental extremists get an open season to satisfy their blood-lust, the SPCA are rewarded with a reduced number of unwanted Cats presenting, and all profits made by the non-profit NZCAR are fed back to NZCAC, so they have lots of funding to proceed with whatever their next 'project' is. Business is business, even when it includes mass exterminations. Everyone's a winner aside from the Cats and the people who serve them.
The Technology: Halo Scanner & The Scanner Angel System
On Day 2 of the conference, Nick Smith will speak about the technology and it's usage. We here at Feline rights are concerned to note that 'Animal Control' is listed as one of it's uses. We were thinking along the lines of compulsory microchipping being used to determine who gets to live and who is slain in cold blood as a misuse of this technology, however, having seen 'animal control' listed in the NZCAC conference brochure as one of the issues Nick will be speaking about, that suggests to us the technology has been designed from the outset as a method to determine who lives and who is put to death.
We shared communication with Nygllhuw Morris back in March when our supporters queried if the 'Halo' brand name had anything to do with Gareth Morgan's Halo Project. Nygllhuw stated "Halo scanners pre-date Gareth Morgans campaign" and also "The NZCAR is a not for profit that generates income, we do not accept donations." We were pleased to read both groups had coincidentally selected the 'Halo' name and Gareth Morgan is not involved with the Halo scanners.
However on the NZCAR page on the NZCAC website it states:
Stakeholders of the NZ Companion Animal Register
* New Zealand Companion Animal Council
The page also states:"All profits from the NZCAR are used to help fund animal charities and projects in New Zealand. These are managed by the NZCAC and overseen by a trust made up of representatives from the NZ Veterinary Assn, SPCA, NZCAC, NZ Kennel Club, NZ Cat Fancy, and the NZVA Companion Animal Society".
Just in case you have not noticed where we are going with this, we'll clarify. At least four of the stakeholders in NZCAR have representatives on the Anti-Felinist National Cat Management Strategy Group. Yes them, the ones who hide and would like to see the Animal Welfare Act amended to remove the 'Stray' Cat designation, leaving only 'Owned' Cats (meaning Cats registered with NZCAR) and 'Feral' (meaning anyone without a microchip, thus a candidate for execution). We wonder what 'projects' they might be funding with profits from the NZCAR? National Cat Management Strategy Group perhaps? Like the mythological Ouroboros, the serpent devours itself and renews itself, business as usual, an unending feedback cycle of profit and death.
But wait...There's more!
We were wondering how the vets were going to deal with tens of thousands of honest trusting folk obediently following the directive of the authorities to comply with the compulsory microchipping directive. Well NZCAC has an answer to that, and no doubt there's some more profit in it for them too.
They are selling certification in microchipping to people who are neither qualified vets or qualified vet nurses. Now, we've heard a tale or two about microchipping errors from a couple of vet nurses we know, how well do you think people with zero vet qualifications are going to be performing this task? There's enough literature out there online that detail some horror stories. Today we'll close with the link to just one of those.
Wellington City Council - Animal Bylaw Review 2016
The original plan for this draconian bylaw was to implement the following:
* Compulsory identification of all Cats via collar and name tag, microchip or tattoo.
* Limitation on the number of Cats per household to three Cats.
* Residents to be prohibited from keeping Cats in any area designated by the council as a 'wildlife sensitive zone'.
* Curfew on Cats between the hours of 7pm to 7am.
Curfew and limitation on the number of Cats per household, along with a total prohibition on residents from keeping Cats in areas the council believes are 'wildlife sensitive zones' were determined to be presently unenforceable, but the council chose to proceed with compulsory identification via microchipping and engage in extermination of all Cats without a microchip ID.
Compulsory microchipping was tendered by Councillor Simon Woolf (1) Goddess willing, this will be his final term of office.
If you oppose the mass extermination of all Cats who do not have the microchip ID, please consider signing the petition.
OPPOSE THE METHODICAL EXTERMINATION OF STRAY CATS IN WELLINGTON
COMPULSORY MICROCHIPPING = MASS EXTERMINATIONS
On 4th August 2016 at a meeting of the WCC Environment Committee, the council voted on the Animal Bylaw Review 2016.
Councillors Who Voted For The Bylaw:
* Mayor Celia Wade-Brown
Councillors Who Voted Against The Bylaw:
* Councillor Nicola Young
On 17 August 2016 we understand the council voted unanimously to proceed with the Animal Bylaw.
Wellington City Council Official Position At 29 August 2016
In an email to Feline Rights NZ dated 29 August 2016, the council stated the following on the Animal Bylaw 2016:
The Council also agreed on some other measures to support these bylaw changes, including:
The mainstream media had field day with it alright, but strangely aside from a Radio New Zealand journalist who we did not get to speak to, the pro-Cat lobby was not approached for comment by any of them despite the press releases we sent out. Now, there's no real reason for us to be blacklisted aside from the possibility of the mainstream media media being complicit with the Morgan cult's social engineering campaign. Independent news outlet Scoop was smart enough to take our press releases seriously, big thanks to journalist PCGM and Scoop.
For us to pass comment on all of it would take the rest of the year, and quite frankly we have bigger fish to fry. It's all standard media spin, so we'll just provide some of the links for now, and the rest when we next update.
And that's not half of it, but we guess you all get the picture, so we'll close for tonight with...
The One That Creeped Us Out The Most
We'll complete our coverage with this downright creepy press release from NZ Veterinary Association, Head of Veterinary Services, and National Cat Management Strategy Group member Callum Irvine. We challenge readers to strip away the candy coated social engineering spin and confront the poison contained within. We'll have some things to say about this one soon enough, for now we can say no one who keeps Cats feels safe, thanks to scumbags like you Callum.
Feline Rights NZ agrees with the idea of desexing Cats, because experience demonstrates a desexed Cat is a happier, healthier Cat. We strongly disagree with the other measures, in particular compulsory microchipping, because the council along with their 'private partners' wish to conduct mass exterminations of all Cats without the microchip ID.
Independent animal advocate Kent Duston spoke before the meeting on 4th August on behalf of the Cats, pointing out the council lacked the legal mandate to proceed with the Animal Bylaw Review. The majority of the council chose not to listen to reason, and after the vote Kent's closing comment to the council was "see you in Court".
Representatives from the secretive National Cat Management Strategy Group, namely Morgan Foundation General Manager Geoff Simmons and New Zealand Veterinary Association Head of Veterinary Services, Callum Irvine also addressed the council before the vote. Download the NCMSG address and read between the lines carefully. Two things are clear. The Morgan Cult has infiltrated and compromised all organisations with representation on NCMSG, and it's clear they want to kill en mass.

Open Letter To Mayor Wade-Brown, CEO Kevin Lavery, And All Councillors
On the day before the full Council meeting when you will engage in the final vote on the Animal Bylaw, as the secretary of Feline Rights New Zealand, not to mention as an individual who holds Cats in the highest regard, it is my solemn duty to write to you all expressing my deepest displeasure of what it is you are about to do.
The matter in question is the compulsory microchipping of Cats.
In New Zealand everyone has the right of freedom of speech, without it we would not be a democratic society, but once Government takes extremist ideology and attempts to cast extremist ideology into law, that's when alarm bells start ringing, and all good citizens have a moral obligation to mobilise and defeat the seeds of extremism before they take root within the law and grow into something monstrous.
That is why I speak to each of you today
I will first address the environmental extremist faction amongst the elected representatives. Namely Mayor Wade-Brown and Councillors Pannett, Foster, Free, Woolf and Ahipene-Mercer. As you folk appear certain you are right, there is no point in attempting negotiation with any of you. Therefore my only message to each of the environmental extremist faction is this:
There is no place for totalitarianism in New Zealand. I formally request each of you follow Mayor Wade-Brown's example and resign, because as totalitarians, you are unsuitable to govern in a democratic society.
To the individual elected representatives who voted against the animal bylaw, namely Councillors Young, Ritchie and Coughlan we thank you for voting against the bylaw on 4th August, your vote on this matter was a vote for common sense.
We encourage the remaining Councillors who voted for the bylaw on 4th August to read on in the hope you will educate yourselves, be responsible and follow the example of Councillors Young, Ritchie and Coughlan and that your final vote on the matter will be a vote for common sense.
There has been a carefully orchestrated propaganda campaign about 'Cat control' in the Council's own media releases and other media releases from organisations connected with the Council such as Zealandia Sanctuary, Victoria University, Wellington Zoo, and others. The mainstream media has been complicit in conducting the orchestrated libelous propaganda campaign against the Cats.
This propaganda may have ensnared some, but from the outset the more intelligent folk in the community have seen through the propaganda and the Council's intent has been clear to us from the beginning.
Factions within the elected representatives of the Council and salaried Council staff wish to engage in a Feline holocaust and kill as many Cats as they can. Given what is planned amounts to an act of political suicide we are presently investigating what the individual and collective incentives might be.
Additionally, we note the Council has been financing the propagation of environmental extremist dogma to other local bodies. We have documented proof the Council has been financing Urban 'Ecology' team leader Myfanwy Emeny to act in official capacity on behalf of the Council to engage in the dispensation of the doctrine of Gareth Morgan's genocidal hate group.
Namely to address the Cat-hater's meeting in Richmond on Monday 13th June 2016 hosted by Tasman District Council, not to mention her forthcoming engagement on 21st September 2016 at the New Zealand Companion Animal Council conference. NZCAC is well recognised as an organisation which has been totally infiltrated and corrupted by the Morgan cult.
Our view is the Council funding the dispensation of Morgan cult doctrine is a misuse of ratepayer's funds. We formally request the Council immediately cease funding these activities.
Going by the recently leaked legal consultation documents, the intention of the Council is not one of 'protecting native wildlife' or dealing with supposed 'public health issues' or supposed 'public nuisance'. Neither is this bylaw about genuine 'animal welfare'.
In truth, this bylaw amounts to nothing more than a license for mass murder.
If microchipping Cats is made mandatory, when the mass exterminations begin, it appears the nefarious task of the mass murder of Cats will be subcontracted out to private environmental extremist groups.
Sooner or later much loved Feline family members will be killed. The media will have a field day with it. This will divide the community, bring the Council as an organisation into disrepute and precipitate social unrest.
Those of us who know history are well aware of the other regime that used compulsory identification and curfews followed by the mass extermination of those who were deemed to be problematical and therefore disposable.
Without a doubt, what you are attempting to do is no better than what the Nazis did to the Jewish people. An orchestrated denigratory propaganda campaign followed by production line style mass exterminations.
This will never, ever be tolerated in Aotearoa.
Compulsory Microchipping = A License For Mass Murder
At the final vote if you vote to embody this as bylaw, blood will inevitably be on the hands of each who voted for it.
Via our network of dedicated supporters and informants we will investigate and document what occurs next, eventually all parties involved in this matter will be exposed to the public for the disreputable individuals they are.
We will oppose this business until the public recognise the orchestrated libelous propaganda campaign against the Cats for what it is...lies. We will oppose it until the present mass hysteria against the Cats has been totally neutralised. We will oppose it all because morally it is the right thing to do.
