is this normal? I've been noticing that Fujoe has little eye boogers now, I don't remember him having them. Any reasons why? it's not a lot at all. . .I'm just curious..

Eye boogies are normal as long as the are basically small, in the corner of their eyes. (which sounds like that is the case)

Sometimes if a bunny didn't get them out of his/her own eyes, the eye boogies will get dry and stick to their fur, and it makes it harder for them to get them out - unless they have a willing human or another bunny who will get them off.

As to why he kept them at bay before and not now, I don't know, Maybe he is just grooming less  - did he just go through a molt?

my bun has lots of eye boogers at the moment! i had to wipe them off with a wet paper towel yesterday as little bit got stuck to fur. i think it's the heat as much as anything. he's getting lazy from it all!

ya, he did just go through a molt thing- bunny hair everywhere! He's still going through it, not as bad anymore. But they aren't bad, small, and he'll let me take them off of him. I just feel like a mom, "Fujoe! Stay still! You have eye boogers that I need to get out!" It's endering actually.

Sazemoo - Yeah, I'm not too good with heat either.   I become a miserable slouch and just melt into the couch, so if I had a coat of fur, I'm sure eye goobers would the last thing on my mind. If you notice that it's more than just eye goobers - more of an ongoing drip down the cheek that dries up then that is a different story.

Fujoethebunny, I have to do the same thing with Bailey!  I actually just did it now, and I guess she's trying to thank me by licking me on the arm as I type.  So sweet!   (it makes hanging out floor with my laptop all worth it)  Bunny back massages and arm licks in return for head scratches and eye goober cleaning.  Ah, Heaven!

My new zealand red, Mabel, has new eye boogers for me to pluck every night, sometimes coated around an eyelash sitting at the corner of her eye. I think she EXPECTS her daily grooming from Mom. She's very good about it. Actually she's the most handlable bunny I own!
