Surprise Around the Corner

Just when you least expect it, there is a surprise around the corner. Don’t believe us? Just ask Kiska.

Oh, boy

Oh, boy! Oh, boy! Oh, boy!


Let me give my patented greeting to Hu-dad.

Yes, Hu-dad had stepped out onto the deck and Qannik was the first to greet him.

We have explained before that Qannik suffers from a lack of respect of others’ personal space. Queen Natasha the Evil is always yelling at him to back up a little.

But Q-Tip also seems to forget his braking distance requirements. There are no more pictures after the above picture because Hu-dad had to brace himself for the “greeting.” Sure, Q may look like a cotton ball, but those collisions still hurt.


Hu-dad is outside. Yea!

Poor Kiska was lower in the yard, so she was slower getting to the deck. And, apparently, she had not realized that the Q-Tip had already beaten her to the deck.

Uh-oh. He is a surprise!

This is going to hurt.

This is going to hurt.

P.S. – No worries. Neither Kiska nor Hu-dad (nor the hardheaded Qannik) were harmed in the making of this blog post. Qannik, however, did receive a yelling from Miss Kiska.

    Ah. “Personal space”. That would be something I had before we adopted Maggie, right? (But I love her. It’s OK.)

    Mom sez: Gonna have to get crash helmets for the Herd! Kiska looks like she is REALLY beginning to “come apart”, as is Ice. Ebbi hasn’t even begun to “blow coat” yet.

      Chuckling. Kiska has not started to blow coat. That is just her usual wooliness in the wind. Kiska blowing coat is an amazing fur machine.
