    Hi there,

    I was wondering, how often should I be brushing Indie? I try to do it at least once per week.  Should I be doing it more ?

    That sound good to me! I brush my buns about once a week when they are molting and every 2-3 weeks when they are not molting. Sounds like you are doing everything right!

    During molting times, I brush at least twice a day. It’s important to help them get the excess fur off.

    During non-molting times, usually a light brushing daily.

    You can also hand pluck while petting, sometimes this is as effective as brushing and more easily tolerated by the bun!

    I feel like the brush I got her is kind of obnoxious. It’s pretty hard bristled. I thought it would be more baby brush like, like I had for my one cat. Thanks for the advice!

    I also recently discovered the joys of using a lint roller on my buns! I had heard of it… and finally tried it. It’s great! Bun Jovi actually enjoys it and it gets all his super fine soft hairs. I wonder if it feels like a bit bunny tongue?

    Huh, I never thought of that – you mean the kind with the sticky pieces you peel off?

    Yep! I got through a lot of layers of the sticky sheets….. but I figure if I only use it when they are really molting badly it’s worth it?

    I think Bertha’s skin gets irritated from so much brushing, but something that pulls just the hairs doesn’t bug her as much.
