why does my male cat want soooo much attention?

He is a cool cat with lots of personality but just wants attention 24/7. He also wont let me sleep so i have had to close the door to my room so that i can get some sleep. Then he has dug a hole in the carpet trying to get to me. We try to play with him cause i thought that maybe he was bored, but normally he doesnt want to play. He wants to just love us to death (lol) & i dont know why.

some cats are super affectionate... he may benefit from toys (try different ones),interactive play, or even a feline friend

its a good thing, by the way,

How lucky to have such a lovable cat. I think a buddy is a great idea. Surround them with lots of toys and enjoy all your love.

Ensure you leave cat toys around and that they can perch on a window with a view. You can also leave the radio on quietly during the day while you're away, the low voices and music tend to be soothing to a cat. If you find it is constantly following you and needs your attention a lot, another kitty friend may be all that is needed.

Ensure you have play sessions with your cat on a daily basis. Communicating with your cats soothes them too, they love cooing, having their presence acknowledged (i.e. saying "hi handsome" when they enter a room, etc.)

Is he fixed? If he is neutered, you might want to consider adopting a girl cat (spayed) to befriend him.
