Sorry, nothing to add, but a pic of the hooligan would be nice
Here you go, tiny terror, day 1. It is probably one of the few times he was caught sitting still that he wasn't asleep.

It's been years since we had a busy baby kitty, too, but I think your boy may just be a supremely confident - and somewhat foolhardy - little rascal.
We had a cat years ago who not only loved our propane heater, several times he actually MELTED part of his tail! We'd smell burning hair and then realize Smokey was standing there with his butt against the fire-window, while his fluffy tail blackened and curled against the asbestos glass! And yes, we stepped on him several times a week.
Smokey was clueless about danger pretty much his entire life. One time my hubby was unsaddling a horse that was NOT real gentle, and Smokey came out to the corral to visit. Not only did Smokey walk under the horse, but then he stropped his whole body right against the horse's hind leg! That horse blew up like a hand grenade, saddle, blankets and husband each making their escapes in different directions. When the dust settled, (and the poor horse stood naked, blowing and peering around in the center of the corral) we thought we'd find Smokey stomped to bits. Nope, he was fine. Rumpled and disgruntled but unharmed.
So, I'd say you just have one of Those. Our current version is named Butch, and while we don't have any horses or gas stoves for him to test, I have to push him out of the way of the vacuum cleaner and we double-check before moving any of our vehicles.
Enjoy Ziggy, love him and just be extra, extra vigilant! BTW, against all odds, (and after several other narrow escapes) our Smokey lived to be 16 years old.
If Ziggy goes outdoors, be REAL careful of him going into the engine compartment of your vehicles ...

I can't complain about Ziggy's outgoing personality. My Mother-in-law passed away the day after we got him, and my husband said Ziggy really helped him focus on other things, this was echoed by the house full of relatives who came to stay with us, including my Father-in-law.
