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... :?

Since lanolin is so sticky, I rub it between my fingers first, then I let Bas smell it. She is not a fan of it, but not a huff fan. Good luck.
MEALIES!!!----the soother after weird human attention such as: foot baths, full baths, ear rubs, oil drops, tummy pats, armpit fat checkings, nail trimmings... :lol: :lol:
