He's a fiend, but he's so cute!

This adorable little fiend....

can't seem to stay out of trouble! He's always picking on the other cats (he's the baby). He climbs on me when I'm trying to do things - like crocheting. Push him off, he comes right back. Throw him off, he comes right back. He's a little thief too - he steals the little rugs and pillows from my daughter's dollhouse. He'll steal food from your plate if you take your eyes off it for 2 seconds.
So, last night I made cookies. I wrapped 2 of them in a paper towel and put them on a plate on the counter as a special treat for my daughter today. We came downstairs this morning and there was something all over the rug in the living room. Upon further inspection, I discovered it was pieces of cookie, everywhere! There was even most of 1 cookie still in one piece under the coffee table. The little fiend had gotten on the counter, somehow unwrapped the cookies (paper towel was still on the plate) and tried to eat them! Seriously, chocolate chip cookies!
I know I can't prove it was him, but I know it was. The other cats know not to go on the counters and they aren't little thieves like this guy.
What am I supposed to do when he looks at me with those adorable eyes? I want to wring his neck, but I can't bring myself to do it!

I feel your pain. I'm very glad hubby has conceded to breaking out the rest of the useless sidewalk because I had nearly run out of cement to hide under the dirt to convince the dogs to stop digging right in front of the gate. I know who does it, but he's the new guy and I don't want him to think I'm a bitch for yelling at him all the time, so I'm being sneaky and going behind his back with cement.

Good luck with your little thief. My parents have a tiny female that looks exactly like him (her name is Ditto), she's pretty much a snot too.

He's just preparing you for a son.

My cat is annoying, but more in the "I'm stretching out my huge body on your pillow and there's no way you're moving me no matter how badly you want to get a little sleep." He's cute, too, though, so I let him get away with it.

We really do let our kitties rule us don't we?! Our older one acts like a dog and sits and begs for food whenever we eat-crazy!
