Fluffle ~

Did you know that a group of bunnies is called a fluffle?  Or a colony, nest, herd or warren?  

I had seen bunnies on Facebook that were bought at Dollar Tree.  Of course I had to hunt some down.  This is what they start out looking like.

After a coffee bath and some embellishments . . . and they now all have bows.

I actually made a few more but didn't take any more pics.  I kept one and gave all the others away.

There is very little quality control in these bunnies. Initially I didn't pay that much attention when buying them, but discovered several had glue slopped on their faces and of course the coffee does not stain the glue.  I was able to pick the glue off with moderate success.  The last fluffle I purchased (3 for me and 3 for a friend . . . they were hard to find), I carefully looked at each face.  A couple had glue near the nose and a couple were missing the nose.  I bought the 6 best ones of the 9 they had.  After getting home, I discovered one had no arms 😁😂😁

Please keep my brother in your prayers.  He and his DSO arrived home Monday afternoon from 2+ months in Florida.  That night he ended up at the ER.  The initial diagnosis was double pneumonia, then the next day sent home with "pneumonia like symptoms".  Just a couple hours later while his DSO was out picking up scripts, he called 911 because he was having trouble breathing.  It had to be bad for him to call for help.  Next told he probably had a mild heart attack.  He has been transferred to a different hospital.  Now not sure if he had a heart attack.  Lung issue may be bronchitis.  ARGH!!!  Hopefully will have a heart cath later today for some answers on the heart and someone can diagnose the lung issues.  This growing old is NOT FOR SISSIES!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊

Am guessing the rabbits were made in China??

Sorry to hear about your brother. Hopefully the medical staff can get him all better. Your bunnies sure are cute. Amazing what you can find at the dollar stores.

Oh my goodness how scary for your brother ! Hope he will be fine and home soon .

I'm so sorry about your brother, I sure hope he will be diagnosed very shortly and treated for his symptoms. It's so scary when something like this happens. Family is so precious... You are right, growing old is not for sissies. Here in Canada, it's getting scary when you bring someone to the emergency room because of staff shortage, people have died in the ER waiting a long time without being assessed by a doctor. Shortage of doctors and nurses and staff.

Oh my! You sure brought your fluffle of bunnies to a new height. They are adorable.

Prayers for your brother and hugs to you. ❤️

Will definitely keep your brother in my prayers. Very scary and worrisome not knowing what the problem is. I love bunnies and never knew a group was called a fluffle. TFS Your fluffles are adorable! Janice

Those are really cute and a fun idea. Also loved seeing all the rugs from the show.

Not for sissies is right! But it helps if we have competent providers that know what tests to order and how to read them! My cousin's BIL was having the same issues, back and forth to ER, pneumonia/not pneumonia. Then they tested for RSV, positive. Please keep us updated on what they find, hopefully treatment/meds will get him back to health soon.

Oh goodness I am so sorry. I will be praying for him. I have those same symptoms. I have been sick for a month, I did think I was going to die. They did the same thing to me, not really sure what I had.
I really love those bunnies. Everyone is just so cute. I hope that the medicine begins to work. It finally did for me.
You are so right, this is not for sissies.
