Loki from Coraopolis

We got Loki and his sister shadow in November of 2015 as kittens. He was a piebald cow pattern kitten who became my "cowbird."
Always here and there and active, he would always come up to me and mew. His favorite thing to do was ambush you in the bathroom where you were vulnerable.
He would walk up... look at you with big golden eyes... mew... then rub up against you... headbutt.
If you didn't give him attention he would nibble at your leg or just jump up and grab your hand with is teeth playfully. Eventually, he would either fall over on your leg or crawl inside your shorts and fall over for tickles.
He loved the laser pointer and would spend a ton of time chasing it back and forth from the Kitchen into the Living Room... back and forth and jump into the air after any toys we swished around.
We got one of the toys from Jackson Galaxy's name brand and he really loved it. I can hear his claws clicking on the floor as he chased toys or the laser down.
He was really something and taken from us way too soon by UTI blockage. We love you cowbird... you will forever be a part of our soul... always.
