Competition For New Zealander Of The Year Has Gotten A Little Furrier

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. In 2020, competition for the New Zealander of the Year is a little furrier. Nominated alongside the prime minister and the country's health director is Mittens. He's a cat who roams Wellington and has become a celebrity of sorts. Many have commented on his luxurious golden coat. He's graced countless social media posts, and Mittens already has a key to the city. Just goes to show that in tough times, we all need a hero. It's MORNING EDITION.
