T Gets a Bath

My poor little T has a disapproving tummy and frequently has "poopy butt". In the few years that I've belonged to him, I've never had to give him a "bath", but I had to step in a couple weeks ago and give him his first. Because his back leg sticks out to the side, I put a towel in the sink to give him a little traction. He was not happy at first, but eventually settled in. He kept trying to groom the rest of him and just ended up splashing the both of us over and over again with his little foot flicks. :)


[Note: For all you new bunny parents, you don't need to bathe bunnies, usually, and you should never submerge them in water, which would be very stressful and potentially life threatening. Like cats, they groom themselves, continuously. They can be quite vain. ;) You can find more information on grooming at www.rabbit.org.]

Poor T! You have the sweetest little mushy face. I want to kiss it. Nemo has a little trouble sometimes with poopy butt too. I have put his hind end in the sink with warm water on occasion. He does not appreciate. Hang in there T!!!!!

Well now hang on a minute ... sometimes that poopy butt just does need a good rinse with soft warm water.

Even if it does mean a few bites on the fingers, a good stiff kick in the teeth, and several days of top-octane disapproval.

Washing the poopy butt requires great disapproval! Way to go T!

It's hard to imagine such an adorable face all squinty-eyed in anger. As we all know - the smaller the bunny the more concentrated the disapproval. But, T loves, loves, loves his momma, and if my memory serves me well,little T's disapproval doesn't go beyond 36 hours. Ya gotta love their attitudes. tee hee

Ohhhhhh, I could just kiss your sweet little face!
Now, did your brother abandon you in your hour of humiliation or did he stand by your side holding your paw? Hehe ... I bet he took off as fast as he could.
