I'd probably just go with my Miracle Pets work a certain way and
other people's Miracle Pets work however they want them to

And I can't say for sure they don't exist. They just might be
vacationing in places
where no one can ever find them (including the LNH Writers) during the time
of the year that's outside their Holiday Season.
I think keeping certain aspects about the Miracle Pets a mystery is
I mean once you have a Rational Explanation about why a
Miracle works... it kind of stops being a Miracle.
Anyway, I declare the 3rd week of August -- Holiday Miracle Pet
Week. A week in which writers can write different season
Miracle Pets teamed up together if anyone wants to do that.
If you don't that's fine.
