      So yeah, I’m that type of bunny owner that keeps the fur from brushing the bunnies… I just love them okay! I’ve been thinking about buying or making bunny plushies that look like Pinky and Muffin, then putting the fur I’ve collected into their own plushies. Just so I can have a piece of them furever. 🥺 I’ve been looking at bunny plushies on Etsy that have the option to have names printed on them. I just think it would be really sweet and comforting to have them.

      Has anyone else done something like this? Lol! Or do you guys have any other ideas on what to do with the shedded fur?

      This is a safe space LOL

      OK so I saw this thing where people made felted crafts out of cat fur… it sounded gross to me but it actually was kind of cute in the end…. they made tiny cat finger puppets out of their cats fur. Perhaps you could do something like that?? If you look up “cat fur felting” you get lots of results!

      That sounds like a nice idea! Did you happen to find a shop that does a great job getting the likeness right? I’d be interested in it too.
      I’m really glad that I kept the fur from when I brushed my first bunny. I put his in a little vial necklace and also got a ring made with his fur in it. ❤️

      I save my buns’ fur! I’ve used some of it for needle felting. I did a few, very simple, Christmas ornaments last year. Bunny fur is a bit less easy to work with than sheep’s wool, but you can use sheep’s wool as a foundation and needle felt the bunny fur onto it.

      Needle felting is very easy and a lot of fun.

      It’s very good to have some rabbit fur saved for use in a sore hock-bandage, should the bun ever need one. Rabbit fur is the only really good option for padding inside a sore hock bandage.

      Thanks for the responses guys!! Seems like I’m not alone LOL!

      DanaNM I’ll look at some videos! Thanks. 😀 I’m sure I could get plenty of fur off my cats too lol! And yes this is why I shared it with fellow bunny people! Safe space. 💜

      @kanin I found some that look like they do a nice job of recreating pets in needle felt, not plushies yet. I was just hoping some would at least have similar colours to my buns! And that is so cute with the jewelry, so special. 💜 How did you get it into a ring? That sounds really cool. I might look into finding a necklace too!

      Bam thanks for the ideas! Christmas ornaments sound so cute! 🥺 I actually didn’t know that about the bandaging, thanks for mentioning it. I’ll remember that!
