Huffing over lanolin application...

I tried putting some lanolin on Lily's ears tonight, they're just a touch dry. Usually she doesn't care if I rub her ears just lightly between my fingers for a moment, but when I tried to put some of the lanolin on one, she freaked out. She started huffing up a storm, and even balled up in my hands a few times. Then she started trying to escape frantically...I have no idea what I did, but it completely caught me off guard, she's always been so sweet. She wouldn't calm down in my hands though, so I put her back in her cage. Any ideas as to why she freaked out so badly? I feel horrible... :?

lol I think my hedgie's the odd one out :roll:

I rub the lanolin between my fingers and I let him sniff it...He starts licking my finger :lol:

But I find that putting it on during bath time has been the easiest by far. He's usually too focussed on getting out of the water to care about what I do with his ears, and he lets me rub it in real well. But ya...He tries to eat it lol
