You know, I really thought that Hunter would calm down the older he got. I honestly don’t know why I thought that, but I did. I think Hunter has a few screws loose. Last night I came home and there he is, in the middle of the floor rolling around. He trills when hes rolling around and then he stops while he is on his back, and then he spreads his legs out. Maybe he has to air out his fruit cups? I really don’t know. If you talk to him while he is on his back, he wags his tail. I am forever saying that Hunter is part dog. If I walk up to him while he is on his back, he quickly flips over, gets those big black eyes and runs into the livingroom like a lunatic. This is his new thing, rolling around on the kitchen floor.
He can’t sit still when I’m home. This morning, I heard him playing with a bag. I turned on the light, there is Hunter inside a shopping bag sitting there, cooing at me. There are times when part of me thinks he could be part feral. But it really doesn’t make sense since I adopted him from a shelter at 8 weeks old. He doesn’t stop, ever. The only time he isn’t right next to me, or bugging me, is when hes sleeping. I guess its pretty sad when you know what time your cat naps/sleeps. I suppose I’m just amazed at his energy level. He is going to be 3, and hes nuts. I’m not complaining. Not at all. Its just he is always looking for trouble, places hes not allowed to go, what he can eat. All of my other cats, were not like Hunter. There were so docile. You think after almost 3 years I’d be used to it. Hmmm not really.
I don’t know how other people do it with more than one cat. I can’t even imagine having more than one Hunter. I’d go nuts!

Hunty - tell mom she has to play with you more and wear you out. Isn't that what you want - more attention? Well, I can tell her from experience you will slow down - eventually. I'm 16 now and have realllly slowed down!
With more than one, we tend to wear each other out and not pester Mom as much, usually. I can still be pest, even at bedtime.
You's one crazy boy Hunter!
Yeah, what Percy said is true - if the two are compatible. However, even if you were inclined to take in another, it might not work out since Hunter has been on his own all this time. Still, from reading his exploits these past couple of years, he does sound rather more hyper than the average. (Understatement of the year - MOL!)
