She has little bald patches. Poor dear. She looks like a neglected bun. I feel so guilty. Her companion looks 100 times better though--all normal--so I know it is not her living conditions, diet, etc. Just age.
    Anybody have advice on how to clean off her face? Her fur has obviously gotten damp and dried and I cannot comb it.

    Oh sorry to hear about your little old ladies.

    It's very difficult with the poorly one. Can you clip the fur very close to the skin (or get a vet to do it)? I am having to do that with one of mine at the moment and I am very careful not to clip off the whiskers.

    We did a long car trip with a bunny last night, in the freezing cold, and I used it to line the carrier for extra warmth. The only thing is it's a bit 'crinkly' ...
