Some of the children have been asking Sarah this week if Bruno is OK in his new home. Sarah just wanted to share with the children that Bruno has settled in really well and is very happy in his new home. Bruno has his big rabbit hutch from Nursery with all his toys and some new ones too. Bruno has become good friends with Sarah's cats Gizmo and Jess, they love playing in the garden together. Sometimes Bruno can be a bit cheeky and sneak in the house and help himself to Jess and Gizmo's treats but they don't mind sharing.
