Cryer is roughly 2 1/2 years old. I adopted him from the humane society when he was around 4 months old. He is very affectionate and very vocal, he has not been around children and I would probably advise no young kids as he is very needy. I have a spayed female cat who he is aggressive with and why I'm rehoming him. He has not been around male cats so I'm not sure how he'd do. He tolerates my small dog but that's about it. He will need someone patient and home more often than not.
