Ming after visit to the vet
Ming after visit to the vet

We got two kittens, little sisters, right after Christmas and they have been all kinds of fun. I thought it was about time that I tried to do their kitty portraits. Ming today and Ying tomorrow. Since we had to take them to the vet for their final booster shots last night, Ming’s expression is not the happiest but usually she’s a very happy, energetic cat. We chose her name – Ming – because it means “bright”. She’s definitely a clever cat. She likes it when the tap drips and has figured out that the water runs when we turn the faucet so she tries to butt with her head to turn it on her own. Luckily it’s too stiff for her or there’d be water everywhere!

  1. I think you’ve caught the “I am annoyed with you” cant of the ears perfectly (drinking a cup of your tea at the moment, which is lovely.)

  2. Thanks! no doubt there are more cheerful portraits in her future – and I hope you enjoy the portrait I just posted of Ying.
    mmmm, delicious oolong tea… I think I will have to go back to Camillia Sinensis and see if the new spring crop is in
