Monday Mario


Every now and then I drag out the vacuum and two brushes and go to town de-furring Mario of all his wandering furrballs. The end result is something like the above. I don't know how the little fluffball doesn't go bald! The photo is actually sort of disturbing to me. It is almost like he got sucked up into the vacuum!

I thoroughly dissaprove of you showing my shedding problem to the world.

I always wanted to learn to spin in order to make yarn out of all the fur that my rabbits left just laying around the house. Then at least it would have a purpose.

LOL and happy new year! It really looks as if Mario had been vacuumed into the container, poor guy!
@Heather: spinning bunny hairs is really difficult, they should be long (like angora bunny fur) for best result (ask me how I know....!).
What I do with the bunny fluff is putting it outside for the birds in springtime...they coat their nest with it :)

I had to pull the computer desk away from the wall this past week and OMG, I think I could've made a dozen bunnies with the fluff I found back there!

Mario seems to have plenty of fur on him, so maybe other bunnies are sneaking into your house (and mine) and leaving their fur to torment and confuse us.

Gosh .. Mario looks about the same. I vote with those who suspect intruders in the night!

We use shop vacs and I empty them about every 6 weeks. 1 inch of well-dryed doots on the bottom, 12 inches of hay in the middle, and about 3 inches of fur on the top!

OMG-look at all of the fur that came off him! that is so funny!!! what a cutie pie! Does he run off when he hears the "machine"

That's a lot of fur! At first glance I thought Mario managed to climb into the vacuum cleaner.

omg! that's whole lotta bunny hair! i bet mine would look the same if my kitty would let me near her with the vacuum - unfortunately she is terrified of it so i think it would be a little too traumatizing, for both of us :)
