What is 'kisuli' btw?

It's like a term of endearment for a cat. It could be translated to "kitty".

Could iloinen be used for 'happy?'

They seem to be interchangeable, like content and happy.

If it's rolling on the ground, yes.

Else, it has fleas.

Finnish has unusually many minimal pairs (for example for kissa: kisa, kissaa, kisaa, kiisa, kiisaa, kassa, kassaa, etc.), so we're pretty strict about spelling. :)
