another Adoption Day photo

Day 2 of trying to get back to the Miao Chronicles.

Today was a relatively quiet day for the Miaolings. Chun bounced around a bit and chased a mousie. Sprocket won the laziest award for his very long naptime. They watched the snow melt, and they ate several delicious meals of various sizes.

miaolings in their scarves

The Miaolings love the cozy winter scarves that their uncle made them a few years ago. In fact they love them so much that they managed to pose for a group photo. Usually Sprocket is too playful to keep his teeth to himself when he is next to Chun, and Chun is too distrustful of Sprocket to consent to pose with him. But during this session, Sprocket was so well-behaved, I am still amazed. I didn’t even ask him to join Chun on the photo platform (aka my dresser), he just invited himself, which might have been a recipe for disaster, but Chun decided to be the most patient brother he could be. Unfortunately I had trouble getting a photo in focus but still, the Miaolings make any photo purrfect and perhaps this is a sign that the Miaolings will cooperate for photos even more in the future.


Chun wouldn’t be Chun if he didn’t let some of his brotherly annoyance show through.

Chun counts his whisker spots every day. I’m sure he has his reasons.

Miao posts scheduled!

I scheduled three days of posts for the Miao Chronicles. That may not sound like much, but it is more than I have done in the last two years!
