What Is It About "Bad Boys"?

This is "Truman" my new foster. Despite a lot of pressure to name him "Cannabis", I figured this boy was anything BUT mellow! This 5 month old kitten is the rowdiest little guy I've had here in a long time!
Of course, I adore him. There's something about rowdy "bad boys" that make them very endearing to me. I guess I choose my cats the way I chose my husband - based on temperament! Hahahaha!

Truman sits in front of the mirror, side-stepping with his back arched and spitting dramatically. He's definitely his own best friend.

There's another cat in the shelter that's the same age, same tabby stripes and same rowdy behaviour. I'm DYING to rescue him. But I have Cheeto in the house and now this troublemaker. I have a weird feeling that the other guy at the shelter and my little Truman are littermates.
Anyway...Truman is out among the rest of the savages. They're all galloping around and having a ball. Somehow this isn't what I had imagined as "The Pitter-Patter of Little Feet". I've yet to see Truman actually close his eyes and sleep. So much to see! So much to do!

How could a face this cute, be sooooooooo bad??

I've got my work cut out for me to make this guy a highly adoptable little sweetie. He LOVES to play bite and wrestle. The problem is, we're not really discouraging him from being bad. We find ourselves laughing at all of his antics. It's like laughing at a naughty child - very bad parenting tactics!

But who wouldn't want to spoil the shit crap out of this guy?

You need the third one desperately. Tripods are a model of stability, after all.

OMG, Beth, I love him! He is the cutest thing going! His eyes are hilarious. If I had seen this earlier, I would have voted for "hotbox" as his name :)

Wow, does he EVER look like a trouble-maker...his face screams it! Good on wild! You're finally free!

He definitely has mischief in his eyes! And I agree... three cats are much better than two.
