The grooming song!

Post by woodwench on Wed Apr 29, 2015 10:09 pm

It goes thus: Wup-wup, wup, WUP, WUP, wup-wup, wup-wup WUP-WUP! (Repeat ad-infinitum).
That what Henry "sings" as he grooms himself. It really is quite lovely. He is a very vociferous rabbit buzzing as he runs and purring as I massage him but his grooming song is best of all.

Aawwww, love it. Bertie used to hum when enjoying a cuddle.
Give him a nose rub from me

It's hearing him that's best. He really sings his heart out when he's doing those big hind feet.
He even sang a few bars when I was playing with a hind paw tonight... crazy bun.

It sounds a bit like hold an empty bottle under water! But there's a lot of passion there too.

Yes, it is wonderful, but then everything about my Henners is wonderful.
When I first heard him "singing" I was a tad worried but I soon realised it was because he was happy.

The same with me. When Bertie started I took him to the vet and felt a right fool, when they told me he enjoys what you do!?
Aha this is a eureka moment.

Henry is the first rabbit I've had who sings like this. Even Clawed, my most special of all, never sang. She and I spent hours every evening grooming each other and she would purr and sometimes she would get so excited she would race around huffing and grunting. But she never sang like Henry; I've never known a rabbit sing like he does.

He is unique love. When I have had long haired bunnies who required daily grooming, it was a fight to the death, they really didn't like it.

Henry doesn't mind me grooming him, he even noses in to try and get me to brush him with the hearth brush!
A friend of mine has a rabbit who also sings when happy, so Henners isn't unique; but I will say he's special!
