Recently our pet rabbit “Sammy” became unwell and required regular medicine to be put on both his back and face. He got to go and stay at Kaiwhakaako, Ally Te Wano’s house for the weekend which was a real adventure.
When he returned, the tamariki were so supportive and wanted to make sure he was well looked after by picking some of his favourite foods from our māra at Central Kids Paraone in Taumarunui. Zander is great at collecting Sammy from his cage when it is time to apply his medicines.
Our tamariki are learning to treat Sammy with care and respect and understand the needs and responsibilities of caring for our pets.
