The moult is under way in the bunny shed. This year is slightly unusual as normally everyone starts the moult within a week of each other but not this time. Rumble has practically finished his moult while Tilly, his partner, has only just begun. Toffee has also just begun his moult, as you can see from the photo above just a small amount has come off his coat so far.
Annie is going through a heavy moult at the moment, she is shedding fur by the handful. I am trying to comb her everyday but she is getting very fed up with that. Luckily, Annie dozes quite a lot so I am able to get a few combs through her then without her really knowing what is happening. She thinks it’s Thumper grooming her, especially if I do her head! Below is a photo of how much fur I am getting off Annie in one combing session.
Thumper is also heavily moulting which is not like him, normally, he has a light moult. After a good comb I can get his coat looking pretty good, unlike Annie’s where it doesn’t look like I have even combed it. Below are photos of how much fur I am getting off Thumper in one combing session.
Patch has also started her moult in the last two weeks. I am having to be very careful of where I comb due to her metalwork.
Teddy & Daisy are just about starting their moult. They both usually shed heavily & there is always a lot of combing involved.
The only thing you can do to help a bunny through a moult is to keep combing & combing.
