oh, you brushed your pet once?

was it with a furminator shedding tool? ;)

They might be pricey but they are amazing! Get one for your furry pet. There is more fur to be shed out

This in only a month or 2 of "furminating" my rabbit she is still shedding...

.

Fuminators are the best thing since sliced bread.


They are expensive but worth every penny.

Look on Ebay or Amazon, they are generally less than half price than the Pet Store

I need to get one for my older dog. He's got a long double coat and even with almost daily brushing, he still hasn't lost all his winter undercoat. I usually get him groomed right when his coat is starting to blow out, but haven't had the money. I've been wanting to get a Furminator for a while, just haven't had the money when I've thought about it. Lol

We use it on Flicka to shed winter fuzzies. We also use it on the jack and the shepherd.

I must be using mine wrong. I get way more fur off my cats with a cheap slicker brush and they enjoy it a lot more, too.

:P I could sell it to yarn shops I think there is a place nearby that will clean and spin pet fur and give it back to you.. but I wouldnt want it back!

I could knit her a winter coat or 3!

And you think your bunny is hairy.

Here are before an after pics of my Angora rabbit (who just got shaved today!). It's a breed of rabbit whose fur IS used in yarn and it drop dead soft. The amount of fur that came off of him stuffs a gallon ziplock full.

Yes, he looks RIDICULOUS! And his head looks absolutely huge. Turns out he's much smaller than we though he was....
