Watching Current Bun grooming himself this morning made me wonder about other small furries grooming routines.

Current Bun is a thorough groomer and meticulously cleans every bit of himself but pays special attention to his tummy (probably gets dirty because he spend so much time lying on it). Smoothpig washes himself after every meal, but Scruffypig has only been observed cleaning himself once in the 18 months he's lived with us. He's quite happy to wait for his bath. Previous Bun cleaned herself after being touched by humans but when it came to her ears only ever did her left ear and was never seen to ever touch her right one.

Just wondering what grooming habits other furries have?

Well I hope my girl pig observe the '3 F's' wink but I've only seen them wash face and feet grin.

GP1 does the 'sitting up on his hind legs like a little squirrel and washing his face with his paws' thing (DD squeals with delight, GP1 stops in horror and nearly rocks himself to sleep (bit chubby) blush

GP2 doesn't wash (but should really) -but he does that cute thing with his claws where he ruffles the fur on the top of his paws with his teeth and p-u-l-l-s his claws with his teeth.
