Violent cat!

My lovely cat is almost 12. We’ve got small kids so he’s around but keeps a safe distance til they’re in bed then joins us on the sofa. Recently he’s started being incredibly fussy about settling down on a lap or next to us and persistently head buts us really hard! He gets attention, we try to encourage him to settle but he seems to want to keep ramming his head into one of us. The force sometimes surprises me! Is it his age? Just being more demanding of attention?!

I have an 8 year old neutered male who does the aggressive head butt, but he settles after a bit of attention and he's always done it.

If this is a change in behavior a trip to the vet is probably in order. It could be him expressing pain.
