    Default Why is it...

    That as soon as you groom your lionhead, they seem to need grooming again?

    Morpheus is very unimpressed with me! He tolerates being groomed, but hates being picked up and especially having his belly groomed. Gah! He is now giving himself a good once over.

    Yep, my lions tangle their fur by having a good scratch after I have sorted them out!

    I've only had Charlie and Echo three weeks, Charlie sucks Echo's mane and gives her dreadlocks. I've cut one out and teased the other two out. She's not impressed with me though.

    My theory is that every time you pick a bunny up, in their eyes, you have made them dirty, they therefore have to clean the dirt (ie you / me / any bunny owner) away. Joey even washes each of his toes after a pedicure. Strangely enough bunnies don't feel dirty when they have jumped on your head in the night, if they lick your dirty clothes or crawl all over you in a bid for food & affection

    Foxy is a lion head...

    She too washes all toes after a pedicure lol

    She seems to be loosing little tufts of fur, so I can only assume her summer coat is still shedding and the winter one coming through?

    Definitely, they need to get that nasty human smell off themselves as soon as possible, unless of course they've initiated the contact, then it's a different matter. They normally need to express their displeasure at being "humaned" with a good stomp and/or flicking of the feet too. Got to love them.
