Non-stop Chatter From The Q-Tip

Kiska loves hanging out all day with her brother, Qannik, except for one minor detail. The non-stop chatter from the Q-Tip.

To be fair, Q has quite the lovely voice. We all know because he tends to do a play-by-play of happenings around Chez Herd.

Just chattering away.

Just chattering away.

We have several talkers in the house and Landon may be rapidly catching Q in the motormouth department, but, for now, Q still reigns supreme for talking.

Still talking.

Still talking.

So understand that Kiska really does love her fluffy brother, but the eye-rolls are certainly well earned.

Anyone have earplugs they can send me?

    Kiska’s face says it all – Get this puppy away from me. Please. Now?

    Mom sez: I just love to hear them “natter” back when talked to. Ayla was like that. The more you “bawled her out” for something, the more she’d “lip off” back at you. Keep it up, Qannik, make yourself heard.
