This is what Loki looked like after he decided to explore the fireplace. His Mom managed to get him all cleaned up again. Loki is two years old and loves to get into mischief. He is a Maine Coon and he is getting really big. I think he is now the biggest cat in the house, which is an accomplishment because there are seven other cats living with him. Loki was adopted after the other Maine Coon in the house went to the Rainbow Bridge and the Mom felt that she really needed a Maine Coon in the mix. She went to the breeder the other cat had come from and fell in love with Loki and brought him home. Poor Loki found himself very lonely, as the other cats didn't want to have anything to do with a rambunctious, very floofy kitten. The Mom and Dad called the breeder to see if there were any more kittens still available and there were. This time the Dad did the picking, because he had always wanted to have a cat he could name Monkey. As it turned out, the kitten he picked turned out to be Loki's litter-brother. The two of them recognized each other at once and have been gleefully together ever since. The name of Loki's litter-brother became Monkee and you may remember that he is the one who likes to sit in a frying pan on the stove to keep warm. Loki is very agile, but has trouble with his jumps sometimes. He has grown so quickly that his self-image of how big he is hasn't kept up with how big he actually is. Sometimes he will try to jump into a space that is too small for him and his front paws make it, but there is no room for his back paws and he falls. As a pair, Loki and Monkee are known as the Doofi (pronounced doof-eye), the plural of doofus, as they are quite a pair.

He got black soot on his head and face.
His Mom got him clean,
But does this mean
That Loki will now avoid the fireplace?
