I LOVE my Furminator!!
The bunnies are starting to molt again.. so the Furminator was put to the test.
With just a few strokes on Yohji, I got a whole handful of fur:
I could also get the same amount of fur by using my hands to groom him, but it will definitely take a longer time. This handful of fur was ‘harvested’ in just a couple of minutes!
I also find that there is less fur flying around when I use the Furminator. The Furminator’s teeth are rather close together, so the fur tends to get trapped within the teeth-gaps instead of flying free around the apartment. I think it helps to use slow, gentle motions when running the Furminator through their coat.. fast strokes seem to allow more loose fur to escape.
The only thing is that, the Furminator is a little hard to maneuver around their rump. I only get a chance to groom the bunnies when they’re busy eating (otherwise they’d just run off and flick their little feet at me!), which means they’re crouched down, so I can’t really groom their rump as the Furminator handle gets in the way.. the handle hits the ground and I can’t comb any further down those little butts.. well, I guess this has nothing to do with the Furminator, lol, I need to find a better position in which to groom them. For now, I just use my hands when it comes to grooming rumps.
Here’s Buttons, looking pretty after getting her ruffled fur tamed by the Furminator. She still has molt lines above her nose and along her back.
