Hi there! I have a domestic shorthair cat. He is 9 months old. Rocky is super loving at times but also shows spouts of aggression here and there. He has so much energy and displays a lot of Obsessive compulsive behaviors. My husband and i both work 8 hour days so he is alone at home during that time. He has free range of the whole house while we are gone. We make it a point to play with him for at least a solid 30 minutes everyday and i take him outside on a leash every now and then when he meows at the front door. He used to have free range to roam around our back patio, but recently discovered he could jump the fence to our neighbors yard and they have a dog so now he can no longer go out there unless i can be out there with him supervising the whole time. When he can't go outside he was will attack the blinds, attack the curtains and even attack me. I ignore this behavior and he normally calms down after 5 minutes. When we are home he follows us around the house like a dog. He constantly craves attention(negative and positive). In the middle of the night he will attack the blinds and curtians in our bedroom and will harass us if we try and sleep. He is obsessed with lights and will watch the walls for cars headlights to come in through the blinds then he scales our bed and attacks the walls. Ive tried black out curtains and even tried just leaving the window open at night with blinds and curtains open to see if he had access if that would help but it doesn't. We sometimes have to put him in his kennel at night just to get some sleep. Oddly he likes his kennel and doesn't mind being in there for the most part. He has attacked guests and family members that come over to our house. I'm at the point of wondering if he needs a cat companion or if he needs to be rehoused with a family that is home more. I'm not sure if he would do well with kids which is concerning. We don't have kids now but one day we will. He is deeply loved and i want to do anything i can before rehoming. Do you think getting a kitten would help him or make things worse? Rocky is a fixed male. If we were to get another kitten do males to better with females or another male(we would also get the kitten spayed or neutered).
