When I first get Bobby in May, he has absolutely no whiskers on his cheek. I assume his previous owner shaves it somehow. In the past 2 months, a few (less than 5) grows back, but not long whiskers.

What does this really means? All my other rabbits in the past 10 years has regular length whiskers. This bun, a mini Rex, is the 1st bun I have that has very little whiskers.

Rexes dont have long whiskers, just very short curly ones. Some are barely visible. :)

Also, if the bunny had a friend, often the dominant rabbit can chew off the whiskers of am ore submissive rabbit. That's unlikely to be the case here with it beign a rex, so identified that they have weird whiskers. Just thought I would throw that out there :)

I learned something today :D I just assumed Oidhche's whiskers had been chewed by her over-enthusiastic sister.

Think my rexes do both - they dont grow very long anyway, but Phoenix and Kylo definately look "barbered" sometimes!!!

P.s. I've been taught most animals shouldnt eat raw porridge oats as they swell in the stomach, they should be soaked first. :?
