Furry

Being an Angora, Bernadette is all about her fur. When she first came to visit for fur re-hab and to wait for her fur-evah home her facial fur was shortish. It was evident that the person who had her before, and who did quite a bit of de-matting, had had to cut her face fur. I am told, by those who know (TWK) that Angoras DO NOT LIKE to have their facial fur cut. They find it embarrassing, humiliating, and very depressing. When she first came Bernadette was skittish; to be expected, but as I observed her longer it became evident that part of the issue was vision. Her fur was just in the way and things had a way of sneaking up on her. Now that her fur is almost grown out it can be styled away from her eyes and she is more confident. TWK said that a simple barrette was fine, in fact a good thing. Actually the words used were "baby barrette", by which I was not sure whether a barrette for babies was meant or a small sized barrette. I looked for both. I went to three different stores looking for the perfect Bernadette barrette. I could not fine a small enough one with rhinestones so settled for a card of a variety of colors. I do her hair in the morning, removing the barrette each night.

Today was a blue barrette day.

I think she likes it.

Now I can tell when she is looking at me.

I'm sure she loves it. Come on, what diva bun would not like to have pretty jewels in her fur? I suggest some nice rhinestones, perhaps a small tiara-shaped barrette? :)

Yup, check out Disapproving Rabbits for an example of a nice tiara accessory. It cracks me up that she has a barrette and tolerates it and she's color coordinated, too!

This makes my whole week. A bunny. In a barette. And my first thought? Well of course. An angora would need a barette, wouldn't she! And then I thought, um, I think about bunnies too much.

You are hilarious and Bernie is beautiful. I will be on the lookout for sweet barettes! Oh! Maybe Elvis needs one. I wonder if they sell barettes with skulls on them.

Really?I did not know that about facial fur? Is that just with Angoras? or other breeds with special fur? I truly believe in `alternate' methods of healing & I've not heard this. This might be a factor in some.
