Sunday Funday!

Hello Lovelies!
It's been a Sunday Funday around here today! We cut loose and had a ball. There were naps, lunch and some fun games. Most importantly, we got comfortable! Some more than others...

You said 'Make myself comfy'!
And to add to our fun, we received an award from our buddy Speedy! He gave us the YooHoo Award. We've had to complete several tasks for our award. First, we needed to thank the person who gave it to us. Secondly, we had to comment on 3 of the blogs that received the award along with us. Hello new friends! :) Next, we are have to tell you three things we are celebrating. 
1.) Being with our family today, reminded us how lucky we are to have such a wonderful and loving support system. We are celebrating our family and friends!
2.) We are so excited to have received 375 visitors (this month) to our website, Wigglesworth Pet Artwork
3.) We celebrate each other! We are both better off for knowing the other. Our human/bunny bond is worth celebrating! In fact, every bond between human and animal is precious. We celebrate you guys too!

Our next job is to pass it on to 7 blogs! Without further ado, we present the YooHoo Award to:
We hope everyone has fun passing this along! Have a wonderful week!
XOXO Meaghan and Scarlett

P.S. Check back this week to hear about my continued battle against Mommy's new camera! -Scarlett (My entries will now be italicized to avoid confusion since Mommy and I both post on here. Thanks, Auntie Sam for pointing out this glitch!)

'Easter' Bunnies

Hello Darlings,
Spring has sprung in California (not that we ever get winter!) and with it comes bunny season. Bunny cards, bunny candies, bunny plushies, bunny everything! Of course, bunny season is our absolute favorite season!

However, there is a dark side to this fabulous time: Easter. We don't object to Easter itself...We are all for religious tolerance and ham! We heartily object to the misuse of rabbits that has escalates during the Easter season. As a crazy bunny lady and a rescue bunny, we feel it is our job to act as ambassadors for rabbit-kind. We must educate the wider population about these wonderful creatures and protect rabbits from harmful misinformation. 
Harmful? I don't think I like the sound of that! 
One of the biggest sources of misinformation about rabbits involves the idea of Easter bunnies. Not the big furry one who brings candy, but a small delicate living animal being given as a gift. Let's make this very clear: Bunnies are not gifts or toys! They are living, breathing commitments that require extensive care and lots of understanding. They may not like children or want to be touched. They require healthcare and interaction. They are year-round bunnies, not just 'Easter' bunnies! Sadly, many of these rabbits end up homeless or in shelters once their 'owners' discover that real rabbits have needs. 
As ambassadors to the lagomorph, Scarlett and I came up with a few simple ideas to prevent rabbit tragedies this Easter:
  1. Don't Give Live Animals as Gifts! This should be self-explanatory. Bringing someone an extra mouth to feed and another source of dirt is not a gift. Try chocolate or other bunny-themed items!
  2. Keep Chocolate Up High! Many a bun has been known to investigate and eat dangerous human treats. Chocolate can be fatal to rabbits so best keep the goodies out of reach.
  3. You Can Never Have Too Many Craisins! They make excellent gifts for every occasion. Big baskets full of craisins!
  4. Adopt, Don't Buy! There are plenty of bunnies waiting for good homes. Give one a chance!
Have a wonderful Easter!  
XOXO Meaghan and Scarlett

Humans with bright lights

Hello My Lovely Friends,
Scarlett O'Hare here to report the happenings around the 'office'. My weekend was fairly relaxing until Mommy decided she needed a new camera. She claims her old one wasn't working but I suspect she just wanted a new way to torture me. Now, I can't get away from her and her flashing lights! Everywhere I go, Mommy follows shoving her camera in my face WITH the flash on. Doesn't she know my eyes are delicate?! 
Seriously, woman! Watch the flash!
I better get use to all the attention. After all, I am adorable and a minor celebrity. I guess heavy is the head that wears the cuteness....
Its not easy being this cute! 
I would be more cooperative if Mommy didn't take pictures from unflattering angles. But no, she makes me look chubby! Everyone knows white is the hardest color to pull off especially when the camera adds 10 pounds.
Does this blankie make me look fat?
Well, I am nothing if not resourceful. I will find a way to avoid Mommy and her unflattering photos. Maybe she won't see me if I stay in my cardboard house.....
XOXO Scarlett

Scarlett's a Star!

Hiya folks,
Today Scarlett finally realized her potential as starlet. That's right; she's the Disapproving Bun over at Speedy's! I'm so proud... I always knew she was meant for stardom!

Paparazzi already?! 
Scarlett was definitely meant to have an adoring public. In fact, I think she has been practicing when I'm not around. I've caught her preening a few times. 
Enjoy your limelight, Miss. O'Hare! I will try not to become a stage mom....
XOXO Meaghan

Taking a Break

Hello Loyal Followers,
I've always struggled with how much to share on here. It's important to me that you feel involved in our lives here at The Wigglesworth Connection. You are our friends! But I don't want  my business or my private life compromised by what I say publicly. It's a fine line... As such, I'm going to air on the side of caution. Please understand it is not because we don't love you or trust you! 
Anyways, this week we experienced a devastating family tragedy. Scarlett and I are both fine but deeply saddened by our loss. We're just going to take some time away from the internet to be with family and recuperate. We will be back bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in a few days! 

Thank you for all your friendship and support! You guys have been wonderful to us and we love you for it!

XOXO Meaghan and Scarlett
