The Way I Groom It

Most of my time is spent grooming my rabbits. I groom them in a weekly basis. I just like to share with you although as simple as it is, the way I groom my rabbits.

Firstly, I groom my rabbit in all sorts of positions. Some people find it hard to groom their bellies but it is quite easy for me. I believe that top of the rabbit’s body is the easiest to reach and can be easily done.

For the bellies, I usually trance my rabbits. Likewise, I also clip their nails in that position with ease. Maybe all my bunnies are very well behaved or perhaps they are extremely comfortable with me. I prefer the latter.

Now as for the tools I use. For a rabbit in molting season, I prefer to go through him or her using the Furminator. This will get rid of tons of fur. I normally have a vacuum cleaner on as I groom so that the fur would get sucked in right away without having any going into my nose (very irritating!).

For a normal grooming session, I love using the slicker. I have 2 slicker brushes with metal bristles and one of them is a Ball Pin Slicker. I usually use the normal slicker brush on areas with thicker fur because rabbits skin is very sensitive to scratches. I have scratched a few of my bunnies accidentally and though they usually recovers fast, I get a heartache.

As for the face, paws, tail and thigh areas I use the ball pin slicker because the fur in those areas are thinner. Even with a ball pin slicker, their skin will get red if too much pressure is used while brushing.

The thing I like about using slicker brushes is that, their fur get fluff up and they end up looking like ball.

A well groomed bunny is a happy bunny. Hope this helps and happy grooming everyone!

Tails From Meadow Haven Chapter 6: Back By Popular Demand

“WoaaaaAaaAHhhHhh….I am floating in the air!!!”

“What’s happening, BlueBerry?”

“I don’t know, the tentacles took a chunk of my back and another is still holding on to my butt!”

….silence…

“Are you alright?”

“Hello….are you there?”

“I am feeling a little dazed…”

“You got tranced! I can see you right there”

“What’s happening to BlueBerry, Skor?”

“Master’s using his tentacles and some weird tools. Let me figure out what’s written on the tools”

“Tools? Like a heavy metal head?”

“No, this one looks more like a shiny tentacle and it has got Fur…..Mee….Later written on it”

“Did I hear fur? What is master doing to BlueBerry’s fur? I heard in The Stories of Old told by my moomy that our ancestors were always lined up to meet The Soul Extractor. She said that our ancestors will pass through this little gateway and the moment they reach the gate way….erm….”

“What happens next mommy? What happened to them?”

“I am not too sure if there was a gateway or not. I am sorry, I don’t think anyone knows what happens after that. This story was told by a lucky rabbit that did the almost impossible by escaping the gateway”

“Hey, BlueBerry’s losing loads of fur!”

“And I thought it said fur me later?”

“WoahhHHhhhhHhh. Here it goes again. Wonder why the tentacles like touching my butt like this”

“BlueBerry, master collected some of your fur just now while you were tranced”

“Argh! I have been waiting for those fur on my butt to get bushy actually. Now it is not as bushy as before”

“You do not need a bushy butt, BlueBerry…”

“I sure need one to shield me from Skor”

“What!?”

“Hey babe, I am the great stud of Meadow Haven”

“My dear, I am keeping my options open but I must say we make good kits don’t we?”
