This is what happens when you are a TROUBLEMAKER!

You get wrapped up until you can't move, while I line up the necessary materials to give you a BATH!!!

This not-quite-two-week-old baby bunny is a TROUBLEMAKER!  You pick him up, and he squalls like he is dying!  You hold him, and he jumps, and leads you on a merry chase!  This time, he jumped, and landed in the pee and poo gutter in the rabbitry.  Blech!

So guess who got a bath?

Wet Wabbit!!! Scrub-a-dub-dub! I used baby shampoo on a wet rag to thoroughly scrub him, and then a plain wet rag to rinse.

What do you think he’s thinking of his little adventure now?

Towelled, towelled, towelled dry. Or, at least, damp. By this time, he's given up. He doesn't even care that he's being held anymore.

Time for a blow-dry! I don't think he had this in mind when he hopped out of ILoveBunnies' hands...

Bunny-Wan Kenobi and ILoveBunnies took him back out to his mama, who backed up and started sniffing at him.  We think he smells nice now… like baby shampoo.  Pearl probably thought otherwise.  Once he was in with his brothers and sisters, he snuggled in.  Hopefully, it won’t take long for him to start smelling like part of the family again.

So, just to restate the warning… BEHAVE!  Or you get a BATH!

  1. oh my … just laughing at this one. :)

    my solution with kits who do this is to give them a quick rinse off only. Complete of course with a towel dry.

    Still makes a body laugh though.

    • Glad to make you laugh! :D

      I wasn’t really sure what would be sufficient, and the whole gutter experience gave me the willies. I’ll confess, I’d probably still use shampoo again just so I’d feel better. LOL Hopefully, it won’t happen again… but it probably will.
