Cassidy needs a younger or same aged playmate! Cassidy is like TIGGER! He wants and needs to run and jump and ROLL other kitties! He is too playful for my older cats and he does not understand why they hiss at him for jumping on them and rolling them, when ALL he wants to do IS PLAY!! I have had to toss him out in my garage because he cannot contain his playfulness! He likes to be included on my bed and loves to be held and spoken to. He is sensitive and gets his feelings hurt when I have separated him. Probably not best with dogs or young children.
