A Facebook event has been set up for for the funeral, which is to take place Monday 13 November, in Wellington.
"In this bleak hour of national morning, it's time for us to come together as a nation and a whanau to express our sincere love and gratitude for the life of our beloved First Cat, Paddles Ardern-Gayford," the page reads.
"Bring a plate. Gareth Morgan not invited."
In case you haven't heard, Gareth Morgan made a few controversial comments in response to Paddles' death on Twitter, which is probs why he's not welcome.
Was it out and about wandering? If so does this reflect the value the PM puts on NZ wildlife?
