Likes: Loki loves his sister Maggie. He loves to play, be petted, talked to to, and to be fed treats. Watching birds and squirrels out the window is also a favorite pastime
Pet-Peeves: Being slapped in the face by Abby
Favorite Toy: Loki loves his furry squeaky mouse on a wand, and also little colored furry mice
Favorite Nap Spot: On me!! Also on the couch , the bed or on the seat in front of the window.
Favorite Food: Fancy Feast and roasted Turkey or chicken.
Skills: He can open cupboards and drawers- a skill although perhaps not one to be proud of!! Loki likes to try drinking from a straw, he then steals it , runs around and then tries to return it to the cup ! Silly Loki :-) He can also say MAMA now!!
Arrival Story: Our beloved Peanut passed away and we wanted to find another cat to help fill the hole in our hearts. We looked at many wonderful kitties, but none seemed to be the one until we met little Loki, then called Pounce. He was 4 months old. He was sweet , smart and seemed to be just the right cat to join us. When we met Loki, we also met his brother , then called Smokie and sister Maggie who was very shy. We went back about a month later and adopted Maggie too!
Bio: Loki is a BIG cat! At 8 months he was already over 36" from nose to tip of tail!At 10 months he was over 40" long !!!! At one year he is about 42" long and still growing - although slowly now. He is also tall.
He is very gentle and sweet. He offers kitty snuggles in the middle of the night- so nice- like a teddy bear. He and his sister greet us at the door when we come home, almost like having puppies !
As Loki has grown up he has begun to watch out for our elderly cat Muffin. She is 18. He helps clean her fur and snuggles next to her. He is such a sweet gentle soul.
Loki is also full of energy , dashing about , playing and getting into things. His litter mate brother(Smokie), also shaded silver was named Lokie by his parents! Really - I guess they are both mischiefs :-)
I have not updated Loki's biography for a long time...He is now 3 1/2 years old and I can not belive what a lovebug he has become. He was always sweet, but now- wow! We have really bonded with each other. It seems like Muffin trained him- I find him often doing things she did , curling up with me on the couch, laying on my chest when I have a cold. He is big, but oh so gentle. I love him so very very much! Oh, and he finally learned to purr about a year ago, now he actually purrs out loud. And he now loves cat nip too.
Honors: Cat of the Day 7/25/07
Today Maggie and I turned five years old. Guess that means I am now a grown up cat- us coon kitties can grow until we are 5- MOL.
Maggie and I got CATNIP banana and a pink birdie toy. Abby stole our banana and hit us each in the head. She is a feisty cat!
I am trying so hard to be a good boy. Sometimes I forget though and do silly stuff, like climb things and try to touch the ceiling.
So many cats sent me and Mags birthday greetings, that was so very sweet!! Thank you all
We got chicken tonight. When our pawrents have chicken Mama cooks some extra(plain) for us to share. I LOVE chicken.
So does Abby …. She slapped me on the face to steal some of mine. I just sat there and squeezed my eyes shut as tight as I could.
Daddy said : “he is thinking to himself that maybe when he opens his eyes Abby will have gone back to the woods!”
Wow – Daddy can read my mind!!! I was so hoping when I opened my eyes she would be gone… but no, she was still there. Always there - staring at me with those big owl-like eyes! I think I will squeeze my eyes shut again and dream
The other evening I was striding into the room where the catputer is located -I wanted to visit with Mama. My tail was held high, since I am a very happy and sweet cat. So imagine my surprise when Mama said:
“Oh, oh , here comes trouble!”
Wondering who was behind me I of course turned and looked over my shoulder! Then lo and behold Mama said to me:
“Loki sweetheart, who are you looking for? I meant you of course” and she laughed…
Of course I continued on to see Mama and jumped up and rubbed my head on hers. She says I have become a love bug. But I started to think about this “trouble” moniker! Everyone seems to think I am a naughty, a mischief , trouble. But you know- when I think about it- I am a good boy, in fact a very good boy. Now I will admit to being active and curious, but that is good, right?
I am not the cat who broke a toaster oven, a crystal bowl and a window! No- that was the perfect Miss Kiwi!
I am not the cat who sat on top of kitchen cabinets, even the refrigerator . I have never caused a scar on Mama’s leg. I did not make Mama wake up to feed me at 3 am for my first 5 years of my life (well I am only 3…but I have not done it for my 1st 3 years either!) No, that was the sainted can do no wrong Muffin!!
I am not the cat who peeled chunks of the wallpaper border off the wall in the hallway. That was the sainted Peanut.
I am not the cat who decided to scratch the wooden doorway into the bathroom, a doorway by the way that survived 100 years until she arrived ! No- that was ( and is) Abby. She also smacks me on the head an awful lot, and I hardly ever smack back. I just close my eyes and grimace.
So you be the judge – am I trouble? I say no…sure I used to climb curtains.. yes- I open cupboards and go inside, yes- I walk on the counters , yes- I beg for people food, I try to eat plants and plastic bags, but I am a GOOD BOY. Maybe I am not quite as well behaved as my sister Maggie, but I am sweet, loving and yes, I am active, but not trouble!
