Meet today’s #WeeklyFluff. This is Mr. Bigglesworth (@mrbigglesworthrabbit), a cheeky boy bunny who acts more like a dog than a 🐰. The hairless Rex rabbit was born with a rare genetic condition that keeps him homebound, but doesn’t stop his playful antics. “He is a survivor and inspires people around the world not to give up,” says his human Cassandra. 💓

Nothing comes above it for me.”

Look closely. This is a drawing of paint, not actually paint. “This series mixes two different conversations,” says Australian artist Cj Hendry (@cj_hendry). “It mixes a Rorschach inkblot test and a children’s squish painting. I started by making thousands of squish paintings, and it took me back to my childhood. Honestly, you could not wipe the smile off my face.”
