Hi! I’m Maki. I’m a blue point Siamese cat and I live at the foot of the Waitakere Ranges in Swanson, West Auckland, with my brother Tao and our mum and dad. My name comes from the original chief of Te Kawerau a Maki – the local iwi who used to live on the cliffs between Karekare and Piha before European settlement. This is my blog, although dad does all the work for me on account of my whole ‘no opposable thumbs’ situation that I don’t like to talk about.
