Albus has been a very active and playful cat since his early kittenhood, but he's also very loving and affectionate with his owners when he wants love and attention. He is also very independent and doesn't let us force affection on him if he feels like playing; he will quickly jump out of your arms. As a male, he has been a little aggressive with our other two kittens, who are about 3 months younger than him. Having been introduced to him when he was almost a year old, he didn't learn to reduce his claws, etc. as they did by playing with each other. It's important to introduce cats to other cats at a young age so they can learn how to play as they grow up. Having grown up in his earliest months with dogs who get excited for their breakfast and dinner, he does the same, meowing loudly and constantly when he's waiting for a snack of wet food. He also expects treats when they do. He quickly learned what the signs of breakfast, dinner, and treat time were, and is an intelligent and quick-learning cat in general.
