Not a new kitty. A new couch. For the kitties. It’s a love seat, but with a bit of care, it can accommodate all five Miao Kitties AND me. Considering the small size of the couch and the large size of the Miaos, it’s pretty impressive. Chun and sometimes Sprock prefer the back of the couch, which makes it easier for all of us to fit.
This photo was taken during the early days of the couch’s introduction to the Miao House. It has brought unprecedented peace and cuddliness to all the Miaos. Before the couch, Mani would not nap near Sprocket or Chun, for the practical reason that his naps would never last very long. Sprocket believes in pre-nap boppings to improve his appetite for his naps. Under the benevolent influence of the couch, however, they will nap within feet of each other, and sometimes even adjacently. As in, paws touching! Since this photo was taken when we first got the couch, you can see Mani and Sprocket are maximally distanced. Over the weeks, they have grown closer and closer.
You can also see that the couch has been rather garishly decorated with the most offensive combination of fleeces. This was done at the Miao Brothers’ request. I have to admit that it fits with the hideous pink walls though.
