Will The Real Fluffy McFluffersons Please Stand Up

Yes, indeed.  This IS the real Fluffy McFluffersons.

My adorableness is not in question.  Neither are my strikingly handsome good looks.  And any one of my peeps who read my blog can attest to the fact I have a pretty adventurous and fortunate life.  But no one before has ever called me........FAKE!  Until now that is.

Yes, once again, Mom's iPhone is involved.  She downloaded an app called iRate Bunnies.  Now don't think it's about bunnies who are irate because it's not.  What it is is simple, you post a picture of your bunny and others "rate" your bunny on a scale of 1 - 5.  You can also give bunnies trophies and stuff and you can also leave comments about the bunny you see.

Now the majority of these comments are typical and sweet: "You're bunny is so cute!", "I love your bunny!", "Awwww look at that face!"  Then there are the expected trolls that leave nasty comments - but we won't even give them the time of day.  Then there are the ones who Mom refers to as the "iRate Bunnies Police".  These posters accuse others of using web pics of adorable bunnies and passing them off as there own.  In many cases, this is true (Mom has seen these pictures before on the internet), but Mom is of the feeling "Who cares?".  It's iRate Bunnies, so look at the bunny and rate it.  Who cares where the picture came from, right?

ANYWAY, so this is where the problem comes in.  Mom posted pictures of all of us, even Ella who is at the Bridge, and someone, we don't know who, took a look at the picture above and called me......FAKE!!!!!  And someone else called Mom a liar!!!!!!!  Well, I can assure you all that I am not fake and my mom is not a liar - I am real in every sense of the word!  I jump in paint trays, I lurk in cabinets, I go closet spelunking, I run around the neighbourhood and I have been accused of flinging poo, although that has yet to be proven in court.....

Mom figures it's because the picture is so awesome.  Our friend Jessica took it - she knows what she's doing - and that's why it looks as great as it does.  Mom guesses they think there is no way anyone can take a picture like that of their bunnies but obviously people can, based solely on the fact that the picture exists.  Mom calls them all jealous trolls, but these haters keep hating and it's sucking all the fun out of an otherwise sweet and adorable app.

Binky and Scooter and Ella have all received similar comments.  So to the haters out there, our bunnies are very much real.  Yes, the pictures are professional but the bunnies are real and we all belong to Mom!  So quit being so nasty and just rate bunnies.

That being said, if any of my peeps here are on iRate Bunnies, let me know and we will vote high for you!  Even though, regardless of the picture, Mom always rates every bunny with 5 hearts, because every bunny in the world is adorable!

Dear Fluffy, I know you are real and really adorable! Ignore all those dumb haters who throw out mean words without any consideration. They are not worth thinking about. Just bask in the love of your readers. I love reading your blog and looking at your beautiful pictures on Bunspace and here. So keep up that handsome mug! Extra kisses for Binky & Scooter too!

how could anyone think you were fake!

That is a fantastic headshot, and I believe you are real, Fluffy. But I'm not even sure if I understand the problem would be even if you were "fake". Who cares if it's a little airbrushed? Or do they think you're a stuffed animal? It's just a silly website with bunny pictures! (no offense, but let's not take ourselves so seriously).

Fluffy you are perfect. That's why we dont go to "spaces" "disapprovals" or forums and chats about bunnies. We had our fill of that early on. Few too many nuts out there and dont even get me started on the bad advice handed out. Anyway, like I said Fluffy, you are perfect!

The important thing is that we all know you are real, Fluffy!

I wanted to share that I just posted our Final Adventure on Freckles and Deb. You've been a good friend so I hope you'll stop by and leave a comment.

Oh, my! They're all just jealous because you are all so beautiful they can't believe it! They drank "hater-ade" that morning instead of orange juice!

It's hard to believe that so much adorableness can exist in one place at one time, but it really can!
