Hayden Paddon is a rising star of NZ Rallying and Stadium Cars is running a competition to get the most votes on a photo of Hayden... The prize is a ride with Hayden in his new Evo9 at a test day in South Canterbury. Would be pretty exciting.

Except I've had many of these sort of rides before and I'd rather stick it to Gareth Morgan in any small way I can.

Please go to the following page and click vote, please also share on FB and ask your friends to vote.

https://cars.stadiumcars.co.nz/items/hayden-in-a-lovely-bda-escort

If I can win, I'll sell the ride on Trademe and give 50% of the sale price to the Cats Protection League in Christchurch (will get and post receipt), and donate the other 50% back to Haydens fundraising effort to get back into the WRC.

So please. If you like rallying, love cats or think Gareth Morgan's a &^**&%, then go vote for my photo.

Please.

Cheers - Neil G

I had to set that as answer just because that's such a random reply... What on earth did I trigger?!

Edit... I'll bet it was 'Gareth Morgan' or ('morgan' and 'cats')!

Heh - Yep - I'm not religious or superstitious, but I believe in Karma (I know that's inconsistent - I don't care).... When one of my cats disappeared I promised myself if she came back ok I'd donate money every month to the Cats Protection League in Chch... Couple of days later she turned up, badly injured, but alive - and made a full recovery... So since then I've been donating each month and looking for other ways to help them...

At the vet after being cleaned up:

And when she's looking normal...

Not inconsistent at all IMO. She is gorgeous! So glad she is recovering and you are reunited with your fur-baby again. I nearly lost my own wee fur-baby to recently, but he's on the mend now thanks to my amazing holistic vet's acupuncture treatments. Thanks for sharing your story :o)

Ok seriously. Some warning on photos that may offend people with weak stomachs might have been nice!

Really not sure what cartoons you are watching but I can assure you that isn't true. Good cause just gruesome pictures which could have come with a warning.
