"Help me! I'm molting!"

I read somewhere that rabbits molt depending on the amount of daylight they are exposed to.

I don't know if that is true or not, at least not with my rabbits. Clint started shedding MONTHS ago, it was still cold and a bit dark. Gerald started after that, and Cinnamon started a few weeks ago. Bambi hasn't shed at all.

Because of all this shedding I make sure they get pineapple every day; supposedly it helps break down the hair, so they don't get a hairball stuck in their gut.

Right now Cinnamon looks like, well, like he is having a bad hare day.....

How can one resist such an ovbious pun?

Ahhhhh, molting! I'm looking a bit scraggly myself -- but I hate the brush, too!
