Teddy - he is just not right!

I already have learned that Teddy has no fear of the Oreck or the small shop vac I use to clean up after them. The small shop is pretty loud, too! He will hop right up to it. The other night while cleaning I almost hit him twice with the Oreck. I never dreamed he would remain underfoot with the noise.
Well tonight I was using the little shop vac in the hall to clean up a bit. (It works GREAT for hay) I was going to sweep up something on the other side of Teddy. I was closer to him than I thought and the hose started to grab his fur. He didn't care. He didn't even move! Then I tried it again (tilted this time so he wasn't being sucked up so hard). He didn't care! I guess molting season won't be a problem with him.
He is just not a normal rabbit. I cannot believe how lucky I am that George gave him to me. I really have to thank her again!

I've had a couple of rabbits who weren't really afraid of the vacuum but the craziest was Stash. He would actually try to play with the vacuum sometimes .

lol - lucky! You can just vacuum him when he sheds!

Zeus HATES the vacuum. He thumps his feet at it and runs up to it and smacks it, lol. I can never vacuum when he's out of his cage because I never know when he'll come shooting out of some hiding spot to attack the vacuum. He even does that when it's off! lol

As far as I remember =^o^= Schneeball is'nt to keen on the hoover , I am pretty sure he would run away if I had him out and turned the hoover on.

But I have been known to hoover a bunny in times of molting , and what with him being a Chinchilla the hair gets everywhere , and a bit of bunny vac must help.

What =^o^= Schneeball hates is the dustpan and brush , he often throws out a lot of straw from the front of his hutch when I let him out . He grunts at the brush when I am using it in a side to side motion and sctatches at the chicken wire on the inside of hutch , as well as the odd thump.

He obviously thinks it's some kind of enraging hairy animal , I have tried the brush with im in the open and it's grunts and scratching all round in a purely hit and run attack . And then he's back for more.

BAMM !! =^O^= Grunt < Scratch > Grunt

Smudge comes over to investigate it- but freaks out when it starts sucking at his fur!

I used the shop vac on him last night. It sucked up his fur pretty good and he didn't care. He is such a crazy little bunny!
I wish the others would be so tolerant. It is getting to be shedding season here.
