Rags to riches kitty
Luke Coles, 6, of Timaru, holds Samantha, a 10-week-old kitten, the overall winner of the children's pet parade at the Caroline Bay Carnival.
Samantha was entered together with Ben, the white cat in the cage.
Samantha has a rags-to-riches story as she was found dumped along with three other kittens beside the Pleasant Point Highway when she was four weeks old.
