Mating odour to catch feral cats
I agree, look at Camelicious. And not just milk, but meat and hides as well.

Let’s hope we don’t shoot them all out as feral pests before we need them.
And then plow in all the cotton fields and replant with hemp for a better fibre from less water and fewer chemicals.

Jacinta was always on a hiding to nothing. Her own perceived sense of entitlement didn’t help her cause, but she was up against Snowdon who arguably doesn’t do much between elections, but once every three years he does win elections, and he wins them well.
The question now is, will Jacinta return to Council?
