This is Wally.
"I'M IN TROUBLE!" How come Wally? "My Intagramies!" What about your Instagramies? "My PHOTO! My photo is late!" Aw, Wally! I think people will understand. I think they'll be happy you've been playing in the grass. "But they'll think Wally likes GRASS MORE THAN INSTAGRAMIES!" I will let your followers know that you like grass AND Instagramies. "If they're angry at Wally tell them I'll give them some GRASS!" Okay, Wally ...
He's an angora rabbit with one of the cutest Instagram accounts we've ever seen.
Introducing some new choreography by Wally. "NO! I MESSED UP! Don't show them!" In the first routine, you will notice that Wally lost his balance on the final jump. I told him that, as a bunny-dancer and athlete, he will make mistakes. He was still very embarrassed, so please don't comment on that part. I don't want him to punish himself by spending the day in the closet. - *Uh oh. Someone named Molly sees a Burt's Bees chapstick loose on the shelf. 😟 I'm pretty sure I recorded this before his Burt's Bees Snatchies. Regardless, Molly makes mistakes too! ☺️
He has big, floppy ears that look like ponytails and lives in Massachusetts.
And he loves to laze around as much as we do.
"I need PAPER!" There's some in the printer, Wally. "No! FANCY paper!" Oh Wally! It's been so long since you've made a collage! (Wally didn't like the way his last collage came out. He gnawed it up in frustration and ran to the closet yelling, "WALLY'S A BAD COLLAGER!") Wally chose two papers - his favorite was of jungle animals - and collaged all evening, resting only when he was finished. (I helped him use the scissors - not because of safety, but because of his paws.)
He reminds us of at least one fictional character.
OK, maybe two.
He's a funny dude sometimes.
"I want everyone to see my new SHOES!" Okay, Wally. I will tell your followers you got new shoes! "NO! They can't KNOW that I want them to KNOW!" Why not, Wally? "I'm a HUMBLE BUNNY! Just say, 'Here is a nice picture of Wally.'" But Wally? We need to be honest. It's okay to tell people you're proud of your new shoes. "I'm PROUD of my NEW SHOES! If you want some, you can't! Wally already bought them!" (Oh no. This is not exactly what I had in mind.) Wally? There are more pairs of shoes just like yours that people can buy. You might make people sad by telling them they can't have something special that you have. (Wally gasps.) "Wally makes people SAD?! I'm a BAD BUNNY!" Sigh. Wally and I will talk more about this ...
He always makes his owner Molly happy.
Molly has a Wally, but Wally also has a MOLLY! The authentic partnership that is "Wally_and_Molly" ☺ #rabbitsofinstagram #cutebunny #fluffybunny #pets #petsofinstagram #rabbitsofig #bunniesofig #rabbitoftheday #petoftheday #cute #bunny #rabbit #rabbitsunited #rabbitstagram #angorarabbit #bunniesofinstagram #bunnystagram
And us, too.
I was going to save Wally's epic jump for another day, but I can't! I can't do it! Sometimes I have this fear that Wally will stop jumping. So I go into squirrel mode and convince myself to save and ration my video clips, like I'm stockpiling acorns for winter. Wally said, "Oh fiddlesticks! I'll stop jumping when bunnies fly!" That's not very reassuring, Wally. And since when do you say "fiddlesticks?"
The angora rabbit makes a pet that's easy to care for, according to The Joy of Handspinning.
Wally was googling "ponies" (he's been wanting to find free pony rides for bunnies ... sigh. Yes, we've talked about the unlikeliness of this) when he came across "side PONYtails" and immediately wanted one. While using my sticker app, he realized, "There's no SCRUNCHIES! I can't show my side pony without a SCRUNCHY!" After spending time in the closet (this is where he goes when he's upset), he learned that bows can also be hair accessories. He doesn't know that traditionally scrunchies and bows are for girls, but as usual, I let him go with it.
But grooming their fluffy fur can be a challenge.
This is Wally's passport photo. He really wanted me to post it today. "People need to know I'm a worldly bunny! And that I'm well-traveled!" But Wally? You have only been to two states ... "But I have a PASSPORT! So I'm a cultured and cosmopolitan bunny!" Wally and I had to talk about what it means to USE your passport versus to HAVE a passport. Now he's looking up flights to Japan. "Wally wants to see TOKYO!" We will need to make a five- to seven-year allowance saving plan. 😉
Now stop reading and enjoy Wally for his complete and total cuteness.
"I want everyone to think my body turned into a DRAGON!" How creative Wally! But your head is facing the wrong way. "MY HEAD IS FACING THE WRONG WAY?! I thought all bunnies' heads face this way!" I explained to Wally what I meant, but he was already in a state of panic and asked me to put him in his "bunny suitcase" (this is what he calls his travel carrier) so we could go to "Exotics" to have his head looked at. (Rabbits need to be seen by vets who specialize in exotic pet medicine.) Like any other business (for example, "Macy's" or "Whole Foods"), Wally thinks the vet is just called "Exotics."
Yummies. *Molly is a bad human! That's too much cabbage for one day! While Wally can eat up to three packed cups of LEAFY greens per day, I've been overindulging him in cabbage! I will now punish myself by maintaining a diet of only cabbage and cabbage soup for the next week. 😔😉 #englishangorarabbit #rabbitsofinstagram #cutebunny #fluffybunny #pets #petsofinstagram #rabbitsofig #bunniesofig #rabbitoftheday #petoftheday #cute #bunny #rabbit #rabbitstagram #bunniesofinstagram #bunnystagram

Wally asked me to film a dance routine for his followers. "A CELEBRATION! So they know that WALLY LOVES THEM!" As he practiced, he came to a sudden realization: "I don't have POPCORN!" Why do you need popcorn, Wally? "I wanted to give out free snacks! Like a MOVIE THEATER! Fiddlesticks! ... STICKS! CHAPSTICKS!" Wally thinks my coconut and pear flavored Burt's Bees is a special treat that, after application, becomes available to him directly from my lips. (Don't worry! He had an accidental lick or two. And after his snatch-and-run this morning - of course with the intention of offering "free snacks" to his audience ☺️ - I've placed it safe inside my drawer. I've also since explained to him that chapstick is neither a snack for bunnies nor people!)
What are you doing, Wally? "I'm pondering the meaning of life." Oh! What a big task! "Yes. My book will be called 'Wallosophy: The Philosophy of Life According to Wally.'" That's great! "I will need someone to translate my paw-type." What's paw-type, Wally? "It's each letter I intend to type, surrounded by all the other letters my paw hits." Okay ... I'm not sure where to find one of these, Wally. "Craigslist! Under Gigs." Hmm ...
