A Year in Rabbits {Bunny Calendar Photos}

Hello, dears!

If you’re in need of cheering up, I have just the thing: thirty adorable pictures of bunnies! Megan and I took these photos months ago, for a custom calendar we gave as a gift. (See some of our previous calendar pictures here.) Now I’m finally able to post some of the best photos – and bloopers! 😉

Enjoy a year in rabbits!

Puppy Love

Hello, dears!

I trust you guys will like the post for today because it involves MUCH CUTENESS. And fluff. And… puppies!

My cousins and sister and I recently went to a place called “Puppy City,” which houses a bunch of adorable puppies that you can hold and pet and take pictures of. You can buy them too, of course, but they’re, like, thousands of dollars. O.o So we left them there, although it was hard. XD

Anyway, are you ready for cuteness overload? You’ll probably REALLY want a puppy after this, so please be warned and proceed with proper caution. *nods gravely*

Cuteness Overload + A Mysterious Tale

featured image 15

Hello, dears!

Before reading this post, BEWARE. Extreme cuteness ahead. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Heh heh, anyway, these little fuzzballs grew SO much since my last baby bunny post, and as anticipated, THEY GOT EVEN MORE ADORABLE.

Megan and I did a photoshoot of the bunnies a while ago and it turned out ADORABLE.

bunnies (5)

We were going to put them on grass, but they started eating it and baby rabbits aren’t supposed to eat greens for a few weeks. Just to be safe, we took them to a gravelly spot in front of the big house. I LOVE THIS PICTURE.

bunnies (2)

 

THE FRONT VIEW IS JUST SO…

bunnies (7)

The siblings behaved very well around each other, heh heh.

bunnies (8)

OKAY I LOVE THIS PICTURE. I can’t believe I got a photo of one of them yawning! AHHHH IT’S SO CUTE.

bunnies (9)

This little one was always sleepy. You could pretty much put her anywhere and she’d just start falling asleep on the spot. XD ❀

bunnies (10)

OH MY, TRIPLE CUTENESS.

bunnies (14)PicMonkey Collage

Since they insisted on finding weeds even in the pebbles and nibbling them, we decided to go inside. And we lined them up on the floor and AHHHH I’M MELTING.

bunnies (21) 1

I couldn’t decide which version is better, so here are both. 🙂 Which one is your favorite?

bunnies (21)

They are just so sleepy and cuddly! ❀

bunnies (22)

I love all the variety of colors!

bunnies 1

The peonies were blooming and this one made a great prop… until the bunnies started eating it. XD

bunnies (25)

They love licking each other… and you. ❀ It’s adorable.

bunnies (27)

GUYS. Look at that pile of sleeping fluff. LOOK AT IT!

bunnies 2

SEE? AREN’T THEY THE CUTEST EVER?

But now that the photoshoot is over, I have a story to tell you. *deep breath*

A Mysterious Tragedy

One afternoon Megan came in from feeding the rabbits and said, “I can’t find the baby bunnies. They’re not in their cage, and I saw a black snake go into the garage [where we kept the bunnies].” We tried not to panic and decided maybe they had just hopped out of the cage (Megan said it had a hole) and were hiding. So we went to look, in the rain.

We all kind of held our breath and tiptoed through the door, hoping we wouldn’t see a snake eating… well anyway, we opened the door and saw nothing. No snake, no bunnies. The cage was empty except for Willow, who appeared calm enough. The top had been skewed so there was a hole just big enough for baby bunnies to squeeze through.

We swept the flashlight under the shelves and stuff in the dimness until HURRAH! I FOUND A BABY BUNNY! The little silver one! We caught her and continued our search, much cheered.

Well, we opened cabinets and peered in holes and generally went over the whole garage about three times. No baby bunnies. No black snake. They disappeared without a trace. Except… then Logan remembered that the door to the garage had been open a little while ago and our dog was around. Maggie is a hunter, and the cage was right in plain sight.

Maybe she nosed the cage and enough for the bunnies to get out, and came back later… then again, maybe she made the hole and the bunnies got out and escaped outside through a space by the garage door! So we looked outside, a bit half-heartedly through the drizzling rain, and then, just as we were about to give up hope…

Nothing happened. *sigh* They were just nowhere to be found. And it was still raining.

We went back, and decided to take Willow and Lavender (the silver one) into our basement so nothing would happen to them. And we still don’t know what happened to the rest. Was it the snake? Was it Maggie? Did the babies escape and someday we’ll see an spotted rabbit hopping out of the woods? Who knows. Only God, I suppose.

And that, my friends, is that mysterious, tragic end of all but one of the remaining baby bunnies. *bows head sadly*

__________________

Since that’s kind of an awful note to end on, let me give you some good news. Carmen is keeping Lavender, the one bunny left! She’s getting so big and is SO cute and tame and sweet. Since she’s the only baby for us to handle now, she is extra well-loved and I think she’ll be a wonderful pet even when she grows up. And now, let me end this post with a hilarious picture of our one and only baby bunny:

bunnies.jpg

ISN’T THAT ADORABLE?! She just stayed there quietly, for quite a few minutes. XD

Well I hope you enjoyed the photoshoot, if not the story. :/ At least we had enough time to get a good dose of cuteness before they disappeared… Which photo was your favorite?OH, and before you go, I have two announcements.

#1: I FINISHED SCHOOL! FOREVER! I AM SO EXCITED. It feels kind of unreal, actually. O.o I feel like I learned a lot, especially in my last year, but it’s so good to be done. And so, so STRANGE. When are you guys getting done for the year (or forever)?

#2: This will probably be the last post for a couple of weeks because we’re moving into the big house! YAAAY! It’s going to be a considerable process to clean basically the whole big house (it is a BIG house), go up and pack and load up our old house in a week or less, and then come down and move in, amongst other (exciting!) plans, but I CAN’T WAIT.

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you so my disappearance online and on email won’t be as mysterious as the baby bunnies’. Even though I’m done with school, I’m still keeping busy, don’t you worry. And get ready for some exciting stuff when I come back!

NOW, you are finally released from this post. XD Thank you ever so much for reading, dears, and please have a lovely day!

Bunny News {A Fuzzy Announcement}

featured image 10

GUYSSSSSS WILLOW HAD BABIESSSSSS!

My rabbit had EIGHT babies, in fact! Well, she had eight babies but then one died. 😩 Anyway, the remaining fuzzballs are absolutely adorable, and getting cuter every day. 😀

I will show you picture in a moment, don’t worry, but before we meet them I wanted to show you guys this pretty mini-photoshoot of Willow, the fluffy mother.

LOOK AT THAT FLUFF.

DSC_4495

I think this shot looks quite glamorous. 😛 It looks like she has white eyeliner on, doesn’t it?

DSC_4496

Awwww she’s just so adorable and FLUZZY.

Willow 1

I think she needs brushing, though…

Willow 2

Hee hee, gotta love those ear tufts, right? Also she kind of looks fierce in this one.

Willow 3

❀ ❀ ❀

Willow 4

Alright. HERE WE GO. This is all eight of them the day they were born. Pretty pink. 😛

bunnies 2

Okay, I guess they aren’t QUITE as cute when they’re first born, but still… I love seeing all the different patterns and how many there are and EEP, it’s so exciting!

bunnies 1

Their fur grows super fast, though! This is just a few days after they were born.

bunnies 12

This is about how they looked last time I saw them (which was yesterday). LOOK AT THAT CUTE LITTLE NOSE.

bunnies 2

They always snuggle together and it’s just adorable. ❀

bunnies 6

This is one of my favorite babies. 🙂 I think it’s going to get grayer as it grows up, because we had another one like this in a past litter.

bunnies 3

We haven’t named them all yet, but we named this one Bo because Carmen thought he looked like a cow (he did more when he was little), and of course bovine means cow. 😛

bunnies 5

This one is also ADORABLE, and really uniquely colored!

bunnies 8ibunnies 9

I think this guy might be the biggest, though he doesn’t look like it here.

bunnies 14

Kind of blurry but too cuddly to delete. ❀

bunnies 16

bunnies 10

It’s hard to get a picture where you can see all of them clearly, but you can MOSTLY tell who’s who in this one. There’s a lovely variety of patterns!

bunnies 17bunnies

 AHHH, I absolutely LOVE having baby bunnies, especially when they get a few weeks older. ❀ My little sister Carmen is going to keep one to replace Diamond, her previous rabbit, but she hasn’t chosen which one for sure. She’s thinking either the solid brown-gray rabbit or the black/silver one.

Which one do YOU think she should keep? Don’t you think the babies have an extremely squishable mother? XD And if you have any baby bunny name suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

Thanks for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!

***Allison***

P. S. Ugh, I AM SO ANNOYED AT MYSELF. A little more than a month ago (*facepalm* ) Bekah from Questionable Tortoise Couture interviewed me, which was extremely fun, and I didn’t remember to link it UNTIL NOW. -_- But NO MORE. Click here to read the post! Once again, Bekah, I am incredibly sorry I haven’t linked it before – I kept remembering in between posts and then forgetting once I actually made them. :/ Anyway, I’ll stop apologizing now and let you guys get on with your day. XD I hope it’s a great one!

Out to Pasture

Hello, dears? How goes life? I’ll bet you’re all having so much fun starting school again after Thanksgiving break, am I right? Ha. *sigh*

Anyway, a friend recently brought some of her cows to one of our pastures and they are SO CUTE. So much cuter than the boring ol’ Holstein cows in our barns. XD So the other day Megan and I decided to go do a little photoshoot of them, because how could we not? (Note: I did edit all these pictures (some more than others), which is unusual for me. But the lighting was kind of gray and gross, so they needed touching up. XD)

I shall start with the most adorable of the cows. ♄ We call her Rainbow because that’s the name in her ear tag, but I don’t know what her real name is (or if she has one).

cow 1 (1280x853)

SO ADORABLE! I love her eyes! ♄

cow 19 (1280x853)

Doesn’t she look so sweet?

cow 18 (1280x853)

I was trying to get a picture of her tongue out, and I… sort of did?

cow 15 (1280x853)

This enormous guy is the one bull in the pasture. Don’t worry, we didn’t get trampled on or anything like that; he actually seems pretty calm. But we stayed outside the fence anyway. XD

cow 5 (1280x853)

He is HUGE compared to the cows.

cow 16 (1280x1094)

I love all the different variations in color and patterns. 🙂 (AND THE BOKEH in the background.)

cow 14 (1280x853)

Look at the marking on her forehead! ♄

cow 13 (1280x854)

This might be the one my cousin called “Einstein” because of her fuzzy white hair. XD

cow 12 (1280x853)

The spotted sisters. XD (Actually I don’t know that they’re sisters, but it’s, um… prosaic license, heh heh?)

cow 9 (1280x854)

Rainbow again. ♄ Her coloring and big, dark eyes remind me of my rabbit, Lily. XD

cow 8 (1280x853)

And this other random cow who was similar to Rainbow but not as pretty…

“HEY, careful with your words, there, person-with-the-black-clicking-thing. I happen to know my face is beautiful, and that you should really be focusing on ME, not those boring dried weeds.”

cow 2 (1280x853)

“There. Better. Although that fence…”

Sorry, cow, you’ll have to make do with barbed wire in your face. Or you could have just BACKED UP A BIT, ahem?

cow 3 (1280x854)

“*glares* Hmph. All the other cows were crowding around to see what you were doing, so how could I not? Peer pressure is a hard thing, you know. Especially if you’re a cow.”

Mmm, I suppose so. What with stampeding and all that…

cow 4 (1280x853)

“There, finally you’re sounding more reasona- HEY. YOU DID IT AGAIN.”

Well maybe sisters and red plaid shirts are more… shall we say, photogenic than angry cows?

“I AM NOT ANGRY. I mean… On the contrary, I am quite calm. See? NOW GET THAT GREEN STUFF OUT OF MY FACE.”

cow 17 (1280x853)

It’s vetch, my dear bovine. V-E-T-C-H. You know what, I think I’ll just end this conversation right here since you obviously won’t listen to anything I say anyway. Sheesh, cows can be so stubborn…

“WAIT-”

Goodbye.

****************

Heh heh, cow conversations are fun to write. XD I hope you enjoyed reading it and the rest of the post! Which cow or picture was your favorite?

Oh, and before you go, check out the two interviews I did recently! Rebecca did one with me and Buttercup did the other. Both girls’ questions were great and fun to answer, and I think you guys would have fun reading them too. 😉

***Allison***
P. S. I updated my sidebar a bit. What think thee?

CPC #4: ~ t h e c l o u d j o u r n a l ~

Heyyy, guys! I’m back with another CPC entry for Carol‘s writing challenge! I actually spent a rather long time on this (especially on the art and such) because I was determined to earn a lot of points for my team this time. XD SO YOU GUYS BETTER LIKE IT. Juuuust kidding. I do hope you enjoy, though! 🙂

Callie’s Cloud Journal

CPC 5 (1280x869)

Purpose: To record my cloud dreaming, for further analyzation in case I’m a famous scientist some day.

Materials: Pen and paper.

Hypothesis: You can do things two ways: the art way or the science way. I am a science child. Most of the time.

Data/Observations: I guess I should do a little introduction since this is an autobiography. You have probably already concluded two things from the data given: my name is Callie and I am a very scientifically-minded child. I have concluded that if I have a choice of doing something with the left side of my brain or the right side, approximately 97% of the time I will choose the left side.

CPC 7 (1280x1280)

Take baking for an example. Some people think of baking as a work of art: they can take a pinch of this and a dash of that and make a masterpiece. Art is not my strength. I excel in precision. I always weigh my ingredients to the tenth decimal place and make sure the cup of flour is perfectly level and the brownies are cut in exactly 2 inch by 2 inch squares. I follow instructions to the letter, and to the numbers and punctuation marks too.

CPC (4) (1280x853)

Perhaps you’re wondering where the other 3% of right-minded-ness comes from. Well, that’s the subject of this entry – this entire journal, in fact. This data is super secret – it may or may not make it into my actual autobiography when and if I publish it in the distant future. But I guess this paper won’t spill any secrets because it cannot speak. (I meant that as a joke, in case you were wondering. Sometimes people aren’t sure whether I’m joking or not because in addition to being a very scientifically-minded child, I am also very serious.)

CPC (6) (1280x853)

But back to the subject. Basically the only times I use my right brain for thinking involve clouds. I enjoy studying clouds – always have – but this is not studying. It is… well, daydreaming, as much as I hate to admit it.

CPC (1) (853x1280)

I close my eyes and focus on sending false messages to my mechanoreceptors. All I do is imagine what I wish clouds would feel like so hard and so long that my nerves are tricked, and when I stretch out my hand, I feel it. (Now, I know clouds are actually made of water droplets and that I have in reality felt them many times when I walk in fog, but I told you – this is the 3%. The other 97% of the time I send my brain such accurate information that it’s easily fooled for cloud dreaming.)

CPC 6 (1280x1066)

I have a list of ten different clouds I choose from. If I’m really angry I’ll go with stratus or nimbostratus, and occasionally I’ll choose cirrus, but my favorite is cumulus.

CPC (7) (1280x919)

Today I chose my favorite, Cloud Nine – a cumulus cloud tinged with lavender and coral pink. Cumulus clouds feel warm and silky soft and puffy, like sitting in a pile of memory foam covered with the fuzziest blanket ever, or on a giant, lightly toasted marshmallow without the stickiness.

CPC 13

What do I do on my cloud?

Prompt picture. (Not mine.)

 

I look out the window and observe. I take notes.

 Miles. 16. Wearing a completely black suit. Independent, entrepreneurial.

CPC 4 (853x1280)

Jayne. 15. Wearing a hot pink and cyan jumpsuit. Fashion-obsessed, talkative.

CPC 3 (853x1280)I have no facts, no data about the people I see, only observations and the hypotheses I come up with myself. It’s a good exercise, and sitting on clouds helps with it somehow. My theory is that after my brain gets started by imagining clouds, it’s easier to imagine how old a person is, what their name might be, etcetera. I’m not certain of this, though, and that’s another reason I want to start this journal.

CPC (9) (1280x853)

Today after I observed those two aforementioned people, I heard a sound so loud it nearly vibrated the fluid in my cochlea right out of my ear.

I looked out the window again and nearly fell off Cloud Nine. Miles had met Jayne and I watched as he pulled his own cloud out of his briefcase and was offering it to her.

CPC 1 (1280x853)

I’m serious. And the loud sound? It was Jayne shrieking. This was going to be interesting.

_____________________________________________

ISN’T THAT CLOUD SO CUTE? I’ll talk more about it in a minute, but hold on.

Anyway, heh heh, that was more of a character sketch than a short story – the plot never really got off the ground (pun intended). But it was quite interesting to write because Callie is basically the opposite of me in every way. I am definitely an art child, as you have probably picked up through my blog. 😉

Okay. Before you go, here are a few bonus pictures that I didn’t get to work into the story.

CPC (10) (1280x853)

Ugh this cloud painting didn’t exactly turn out how I imagined. I’ve never seen such strange, wobbly sun rays. Oh well… let’s call it artistic license. *Sigh* Except for that one pink “Cloud Nine” picture, I am terrible at drawing realistic clouds, so this was great practice!

CPC 12CPC (8) (1280x853)CPC (1280x853)

I got the gorgeous warm cumulus cloud pictures coming back from a vacation.

CPC (5) (1280x853)

And now for the fluzzy cloud. THIS LITTLE GUY IS WAY TOO CUTE. I simply bunched up a piece of felting wool in my hand, took these pictures, and then added the face on PicMonkey.

For some reason I LOVE IT. Also help, I need name suggestions. Yes I am going to name a blob of felting wool. I mean, I’m a teenage girl, what do you expect? 😛 XD

CPC 2 (986x986)

♄♄♄ SO. SQUISHY.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the story and the pictures and art, dears. 🙂 Oh, and if you’re interested in reading more of my CPC entries, you can see my first entry here and my 2nd and 3rd entries here, on my CWWC page. I didn’t make a separate post for the two on the page, but I’d love to hear what you think!

Do you have a favorite photo/piece of art? Are you a science child or an art child? Any name suggestions for Mr. Fluzzy? (Hey, there’s an idea…)

***Allison***

P. S. Tomorrow I will announce the winner of my giveaway! I’M SO EXCITED. Also I apologize for all the outbursts in this post. O.o Heh.

Bunnies in Autumn

EXTREME CUTENESS ALERT: If you are not able to cope with impossibly adorable animals, perhaps you should skip this post.

Okay, everyone’s still here. Good. BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO CUTE TO MISS, EEP! This is definitely my favorite bunny photoshoot I’ve ever done and it turned out gorgeous, if I do say so myself! 😀 Special thanks to my sister Megan who posed and calmed the bunnies throughout this traumatizing time of sitting on white foamboard and being bombarded by flowers and shot by cameras.

And now let’s just get to the pictures. I CAN’T WAIT ANY LONGER. (Actually I can wait long enough to give you a warning that there will probably be a lot of caps in this post. Obviously.)

Let’s start with the one and only Olaf. Olaf’s prop was a rosebud from our bush, and it was perfect! Also sorry for all the weird different shades of white in the backgrounds. The original pictures were rather bluish and they were hard to adjust properly since Olaf’s a different color of white. :/ Anyway, just ignore that part and hopefully enjoy them anyway.

1 (1280x853)

Wait. That… wasn’t a rabbit. Oh well.

I dub thee, Princess Olaf. (Yes, Olaf is a girl. We thought she was a boy and had already named her by the time we figured out that the seller had given us the wrong one. XD)

3 (1280x853)2 (1280x853)

BWAHAHAHA isn’t this picture hilarious? Olaf kept winking for some reason.

8 (1280x1280)7 (1280x930)

AGAIN WITH THE WINK.

6 (1280x853)5 (1280x853)

Ugh the white is so off on this one but I love it otherwise! Isn’t it so pretty?

bunnies9 (1280x853)4 (1280x1100)

And now for my dear fluffy Willow. She actually had recently gotten a trim when I took these pictures so she’s not as fluffy as normal. Also Willow gets more pictures because I didn’t need to edit them as much, heh heh. AND BECAUSE SHE’S FLUFFY.

Here we have a behind-the-scenes picture. My little sister Carmen also wanted to help (but just briefly), and poor Willow was a bit befuddled with all the chaos, I think. We chose marigolds because they’re pretty, but I think they may actually be poisonous to rabbits? I’m not sure. Anyway, we made sure she didn’t so much as nibble one, and she’s still alive to tell the story.

DSC_2799 (1280x853)

I’m pretty sure that’s an orange teardrop of stress on her cheek.

DSC_2801 (1280x853)

DSC_2803 (1280x853)

Good JOB, Willow! You stayed!

DSC_2808 (1280x853)

HA HA. I don’t even know what her expression is but it’s funny.

DSC_2807 (1280x853)

THIS. IS. HILARIOUS. It looks like she’s directing a plane coming in for landing or helping someone try to parallel park. “Okay a little to the right. Nope, your other right. There, you got it. Keep on a-coming, beep, beep, beep.”

DSC_2805 (1280x853)

We actually did get some good photos in the midst of all the funny ones, though! While it may look like she sat there innocently staring at me, she did not. She took every chance to meander away from where she was supposed to be in hopes of greener grass. (But this grass is pretty green, so…)

DSC_2822 (1280x853)DSC_2820 (1280x853)DSC_2819 (1280x853)DSC_2818 (1280x853)DSC_2817 (1280x853)9 (1280x1280)

DSC_2832 (1280x853)

Ha ha, she looks like a scared little fluffy pancake. But a cute one. ♄

DSC_2828 (1280x853)

DSC_2825 (1280x853)

Aww, so sweet! That’s it, your getting the hang of it now, Willow!

DSC_2848 (1280x853)

Mmpf, maybe not. SOOOORRY.

DSC_2844 (1280x853)

DSC_2847 (1280x853)

Aww I love this one! Isn’t it so beautiful and adorable? You are a lovely Queen of Summer, Willow.

11 (1280x992)10 (1280x1277)

Next we have Diamond. I think she’s very noble-looking and handsomely beautiful, don’t you? I love the colors in these pictures!

bunnies11 (1280x853)

Whoops, I think I over-edited this one…

12 (1280x853)

Next we went to the soybean field, which is mostly featured in these pictures as a yellow glow.

15 (1280x853)

18 (1280x853)

I LOVE this one!

17 (1280x853)DSC_2882 (1280x853)

Ha ha, her dewlap. XD (A dewlap is the big floppy thingy around their neck that some adult female rabbits have. It’s normal, don’t worry. 😉 )

13 (1280x853)

Now for Snickers. GUYS, HIS CHUBBY CHEEKS HELP ME. Is he not the cutest?

19 (1280x994)

AHHH THIS PICTURE THOUGH.

bunnies12 (1280x853)23 (1280x853)22 (1280x853)DSC_2923 (1280x853)21 (1280x853)

I LOVE HIS SQUISHY FACE.

20 (1280x853)

And lastly but not leastly, a picture of the three compadres, Diamond, Olaf, and Lily. They are similar breeds (Diamond’s a Silver Fox and the other two are New Zealands), but they’re different colors, which makes for a lovely group shot. (And again I have kind of a weird white balance thing going on. Sorry ’bout that!)

bunnies13 (1280x1024)

Lily: Let me just move up a little bit so you can see me better. Is this a good angle?

Olaf: Mmph. You’re squishing me.

26 (1280x853)

In which three frightened rabbits cower under the… oh, it’s just a camera.

25 (1280x812)

HA HA WHAT IS UP WITH THE WINKING AGAIN, OLAF?! XD It cracks me up.

24 (1280x918)

And that’s about it! I took tons more photos than that but those were the best. What did you think, guys? Guys? Oh dear, perhaps that was a little too much cuteness for one post…

If anyone survived, which bunny’s shoot was your favorite?

Thanks so much for reading, my dears, and have a wonderful day!

***Allison***

P. S. OOPS. Nearly forgot about the Caption It contest! Here’s the photo:

DSC_1747 (800x533)

And my favorite caption was by Zielle.

Maggie: Wait, wait, I think I got it! I can wink!
Allison: That’s blinking, Maggie.

HA HA IT’S PERFECT! Thanks, Zielle, and everyone else who participated! I loved reading your captions.

Dog + Cats

Get ready for some furry cuteness, my friends! Today I have some pictures of our yellow Lab, Maggie, along with a Caption It, and lots of pictures of KITTENS! 🙂

Ready?

Set?

Go.

Let’s start with Maggie. She looks so sweet and calm in this picture! Do you see the heart she makes with her paws? ♄ SO CUTE.

dog 1 (1280x853)

I was taking pictures for my sister Megan‘s photo contest, BIBPC, and got one with Maggie in the background. 🙂

DSC_1735 (853x1280)

DSC_1741 (1280x853)DSC_1742 (1280x853)

HA HA! Maggie makes odd faces sometimes. XD I think she was licking her lips or something, but she looks like she’s in mid-snarl.

DSC_1743 (1280x853)

I love all the beautiful bokeh in these next pictures. ♄

DSC_1745 (1280x853)DSC_1746 (1280x853)

DSC_1749 (1280x853)

DSC_1748 (1280x853)

And we shall end Maggie’s pictures with my favorite – probably my favorite I’ve ever taken of her. IS THIS NOT HILARIOUS?! AND ADORABLE?! Tell me what you think I should caption it in the comments, and I’ll announce the winner in another post. 😀

DSC_1747 (1280x853)

Now for the cats. (Just so you know, I did edit many of these a bit.) This is Whopper. 😛

cats 1 (1280x853)

I love cats’ eyes! They’re so pretty and round.

Speaking of pretty eyes, take a look at Violet’s eyes! ♄

Okay, now for the wittle kittens. 😀 I believe this is Bubbles (my little sister named him XD), but I’m not certain.

We named this little guy Fuzzer Jr., after a cat that looked just like him that my grandmother used to have.

AWW! I love this picture!

And here’s one of little Louis. I think there’s another one or two kittens, but apparently I didn’t get very good pictures of them. :/

And last but not least, a couple of pictures of this sweet but startled-looking kitty that showed up at our house. I’m not sure where he’s from. Oh, and Carmen named him Thomas, Tom for short. 😉

Such stunning eyes! Rather shocked-looking, but pretty. 😛

And there’s your dose of cuteness for the day! Which picture was your favorite? Do you like cats or dogs better, and why? I like cats better because they’re more soft and clean and you can hold them, but I like the pictures of Maggie better in this post.

P. S. Are you guys ready for another art post, or should I do the second vacation post first?

Farewell, Baby Bunnies

WARNING: EXTREME CUTENESS ALERT. If you read this post, I can almost guarantee you’ll want a baby bunny… immediately. Read at your own risk. 😛

The other day we sold one of the baby bunnies (Herbert Naninger). It won’t be long till the rest of them go too, most likely. So this *might* be the last baby bunny post for a while. 😩

Anyway, I did take some pretty cute pictures of the ones we’re selling before Herbert left! Actually, “pretty cute” isn’t quite strong enough. I’d say “extremely adorable” sounds more accurate.

Care to have a look?

AWW DOESN’T HERB LOOK ADORABLE?!

Sister and brother. 🙂

The bunnies are SO cute when they stand up and look around like this, aren’t they?

And they’re ALSO so cute when they wash their faces. (Excuse my little sister’s leg. I was too lazy to crop it out. XD)

AWW! Ugh, it would have been a perfect picture if Carmen’s knee hadn’t photobombed it. 😩 *Sigh* Oh well.

AWWW doesn’t that picture just make you want to squish his (I mean her) fuzzy body? They are sooo soft. I definitely took the most pictures of Herb this time. She’s just so photogenic and sweet, not to mention that was practically the last chance I had.

I kept putting Herb down so I could get a better picture of her but she insisted on hopping back into my lap. ♄

DSC_1007 (1280x853)

My sweet little Ginger. 😀

DSC_1011 (853x1280)

As I’ve said before, it’s kind of hard to get good pictures of Mulberry because she’s so dark. That’s why the exposure is kind of off in this photo. But she’s still cute. 🙂

Heh heh, Herb eating grass. XD

AHHHHH!

Bwahahahaha is this photo not hilarious? I think he was twisting his head just as I snapped the picture. XD

Bunny paws… ♄

Poor Mulberry. Almost all her photos are either too dark or too light. 😩

DSC_1024 (1280x853)

And we’re done. Which photo was your favorite, if you had one? Did you survive the cuteness overdose? I certainly hope so! Where would this blog be without all my dear readers?
