I got Loki last year from a friend who's cat had kittens. The mom was a regular black cat and dad a Maine coon. He is probably the friendliest, loving intelligent cat I've had.
He's full of energy all the time and is constantly begging for attention. If he isn't playing with us or the other cats, he's climbing, jumping and getting into everything he can. He is also extremely vocal - he lets us know when he is upstairs, when he can't find us, when he is pooping and if we talk to him, he talks back. He's the only cat I have that will jump a big distance to get up high.
When he is resting, he loves to lay on his back with his legs all stretched out. We call him our therapy cat because he seems to know when we are upset. He will try to sit on our chest (even though he isn't a small cat anymore) and will meow or put his paw on our face. If we do not give him attention, he lets us know. He also likes to groom us.. If my husband sits still long enough Loki will try to groom his beard and eyebrows.
Loki often wakes us up at night by licking our faces, but after being told no a few times he will give up and cuddle. I just don't understand why people don't care for black cats...they are so wonderful!
