    It's EVERYWHERE. In the run, on the grass, it's coming off in massive clumps. Have tried the brush but he hates it, so I have to follow him around the garden picking it off his bum lol

    I love tufty bunny bums when they're moulting, it's adorable!
    Angel is soooo fluffy so my house gets covered in her fur. I love it when she comes and sits with me though coz I can brush them out.

    Rini is exactly like this right now! I used to sit her on a table outside and pluck all the loose fur off but she got skittish after a vet visit and didnt like being outside anymore so I've resorted to grooming her on the landing... but bunny fur floating round the house isnt really good. (I've been putting her in the run outside to get her used to the noises again).

    I only worry about her eating too much and getting a blockage as I can never get it all off in one sitting and its back to the way it was before grooming the next day :/

    I tried feeding her a little pineapple but she just took a little bite out of one chunk. Suppose any is better than none! lol

    Didn't think about it getting blocked. Now I should really try to do something about it.

    Mine go loopy when on a tabe, ended up with fur flying everywhere!

    Not a good thing if your very house proud to have a second carpert of rabbit fur:blink:

    My room has a nice carpet of white this week :blink:. He's just a small rabbit not even that much fur but it's everywhere. Going to brush him today see if I can get a lot of it out

    Lol I dont do it in my room so I dont have to worry about it (but indoors theres no wind to blow it away from you and i end up eating half of it!) XD lmao

    I ingeniously decided on a black carpet in my bedroom where rini is kept. And she is grey with a white belly...... lets just say until I hoover I have a grey carpet! lol

    I do really worry about blockages tho... but there isnt much you can do about it cause they always have loads of loose fur on a heavy moult even if you groom them every day :/
