My Cat Double Trouble

Double Trouble - sorry the picture has been lost when moving the site.
Hello: Got this bundle of fur on his 5 week old birthday and was cute and short hair. As he got older, now he is 13 months old he is all fur that is soft and long and gray even tho he was all black when I got him. I was wondering if he could be part angora? The other kittens are all short hair and straight. Out of 7 kittens he is the only black one and long haired. He keeps me hoping for he knows when I go out anywheres he gets a pinch of cat nap.
The other night I wasn't paying attention to him but spoke to him when I heared his bowl rattle. As my company and I continued on with our conversation he comes in the front room with the bowl in his mouth and dropped it at my feet. Was he asking me for some?? I think so. At night he will always jump on my bed and sucks his blanket till he falls to sleep, purring and kneading bread. When he wants to go to bed he comes out with the silk top (his blanket) telling me that he wants me to retire for the evening. I didn't teach him this at all.
He plays fetch every day with his stuff mouse, he catches them in mid air and returns them to me so I can toss them again and we do this for hours until he gets tired then lays on his back with the mouse on his chest.
He is a gem and everyone loves him. His name is Double Trouble.
