My rabbit likes to be brushed with the vacuum cleaning tool! I thought rabbits were supposed to be scared of the vacuum but he will chase me around until I brush him with it. Has anyone else heard of this or experienced it?

No, but it sounds hilarious! I do know of other animals liking that kind of thing, like dogs, so why not a rabbit. I imagine he must like the way it feels on his skin when you do it. Maybe like a little bunny massage :p

I remember my friend's cat liked to be vacuumed! I tried on occasions to vac my big hairy dogs, but none of them ever took to it. I wouldn't have thought to try it on a bun because of the noise, but yours sounds like he's enjoying it. Rabbits are so funny.

Had 2 that were always trying to look up the pipe and one that was very adversarial with it. Once it's running they could care less--used to it I guess.

my rabbits used to scared of it; but, now they are always trying to look up the pipe. I think they are wondering where everything is going. I have tried vacuuming them and it freaks them out! But, then they come back again to investigate. One of mine will actually stand in front of her hiding spot or refuse to get out so I won't clean it. :) they are so funny!! Silly girls :D
