Furby's Furry Grooming Time

Having a long haired Angora rabbit has it's challenges.  Furby is a sweet girl, but needs constant grooming. The kids do a great job of keeping her brushed on top and she is such a good girl letting anyone brush her. Unfortunately that doesn't take care of the bottom, belly and those hard to reach places behind her ears. Thank goodness for our favorite music teacher, Mrs. Wilken!  She has become our official bunny groomer and has officially earned her Critter Camp Staff status!  She comes down everyday to help Ms. Johnson groom all those hard to reach places and has saved poor Furby from many uncomfortable mats and kept her from getting any "hot spots" from those mats!

Mats happen fast!

Carefully snipping.

Furby was so great.  The scissors don't even phase her.

Making her pretty!
