I've been having a heck of a time with MOLTING lately. I try everything (brushing, combing, wet hand smoothing, rubber thing, etc...)----but sometimes my pre-visit efforts really backfire and release even more fur. So, the following idea came to me and I tried something new----lint removal tape!
This is Smudge. He was rescued by construction workers at a site with his litter of four baby siblings. We kept Smudge and Tucker and adopted out the other three after they were spayed/neutered, and socialized. Each baby looked different!
Smudge is a gentle bun, and very gracious. He's a dear guy with a LOT of patience. He lives with bun-sis Hannah, our resident "pill" and lovely Mama Lucy, a Flemish giant. Residents LOVE Smudge! I hear, "OH! Now THIS one looks like a REAL rabbit" all the time. "Yes, Smudge is a domestic rabbit with an agouti coat like some wild cottontails...." *wink*
Well, this week it was Smudge's turn to visit, and he LOVES visiting.
He was also molting and he was NOT happy about THAT.
I was SHOCKED at the extra fur that came off with the tape!
