Very friendly for a cat but can be excessively noisy and sheds quite a bit

This was my first experience at owning a cat and it has been positive, for the most part. Our cat is extremely friendly and normally a pleasure to interact with, but he can be very insecure and likes to hop on the bed and wake us up multiple times every night for affection. He also sheds terribly, which makes it difficult for someone who works in a suit. On the whole, a good pet but I have found that cats do have downsides that the dogs I have owned do not, mainly in the way of shedding and being nocturnal animals.
