So last year was a hard one. We lost both of our older cats. After Monty went, we got a 3 y/o companion for Isis and named him Pippin. He's the grey and Isis the black.

They got close...

Isis passed away and Pippin was alone and didn't handle it well. He's from a hoarder house (26 cats) and has never been alone. We went in search of a buddy for him and at the local shelter found...

Kili!

Kili was little and cute and slept in my DHs arms the whole time we were there.

He immediately fit right in. Pippin and Kili became constant companions.

Little did we know there was a wild child hidden inside all that cuteness!

Happy ending! (But let's hear about the wild part.)

Kili is at least part Maine Coon. We knew this going in. His feet are humongous and his toes are webbed. His fur is silky and has a thick undercoat. DH and I have both raised kittens and knew what to expect. At least...we THOUGHT we did.

Kili has boundless energy. I almost mean that literally. He cannot sit still.

We have had him about 8 months now and he's gone from this...

He has broken more than his share of items. Glassware, knickknacks, dishes. We have learned to put things away or he will run off with it. He stole my wedding ring for 2 weeks and finally brought it back. He has torn up more TP rolls than I can count. We keep both bathroom doors shut now.
Thumb of 2015-02-03/Zencat/2e8604

He literally climbs walls!
Thumb of 2015-02-03/Zencat/bf1f56

He steals rings, slippers, socks, papers, envelopes, towels, blankets, kleenex, knapkins and food off your plate.

He's a handful but I won't give him up!

He gets locked in closets. He gets into cupboards. He climbs lamps. Yes, lamps. He knocks anything and everything out of his way. He will charge through the house for an hour. He has spilled numerous cups of coffee leaping onto us during his races. He has knocked over lamps, chairs, tv trays, knickknacks and pictures off the walls. Anything nice has to be hidden or nailed down. He knows how doorknobs and levers work.

We have learned many things from this cat....
Put food away
Close doors
Clean off tables and counters
Safety lock the catfood cupboard
Put all clothing items away
If it's quiet, Kili is into something

He will be a year old Feb. 14th. I hope the next year is as adventurous as this last one!

Points of fascination for Kili...

The inside of my clothes
That spot on the wall
Inside the trash
Pippin
My purse
Whatever it is we're doing on the other side of a closed door
The oven
The washer
The dryer
The dishwasher
The kitchen sink
He will watch these things fot hours or continually try to get inside. I can't do laundry or cook or dishes without a cat trying to help.

Pippin thinks he's insane but he's OUR insane boy.
Thumb of 2015-02-03/Zencat/4a7006

We have playtime for at least 20 mins a few times a day. He has toys. He has Pippin. He has laps. He has chairs and his very own shelf to watch the world.

He will sit in front of the TV. Not to watch. So we're looking at him.

Did I mention the chewing? Fingers, slippers, feet, decorative items, coats and sweaters. Corners...he loves to chew on corners. Cabinets, tables, walls, dressers, the aquarium. Goodness gracious, Kili! Does it ever stop?

This morning, after feeding both cats, Kili went on a running binge. For 3 hours! He ran off with the remote for the bluray. He took my slipper off my foot and ran away. He pestered Pippin until he had to retreat to my lap. He knocked over a speaker. There was more but I've blocked it. Lol

Surprisingly, he doesn't climb the drapes or screens.

- Yet...

We have a cat that eats cloth - not always with good results. She especially likes socks fresh from the dryer and dish towels.

Kili has grown up a bit but still gets into trouble.

He really has turned out to be a beautiful cat. But he never rests. He plots.
