It sure sounds like kitty wants to play!! Otherwise he'd probably be avoiding Hayden at all costs! Cats are so funny... he's trying to pretend he's aloof and doesn't like Hayden but I bet he does!!
I do still put Hayden out for a bit in the morning so the cat can do his running around without being chased. He's odd and likes to have his morning run. Sounds like he's tearing up the carpet he's so into it. He's 2 years old and still acts like a kitten I love it
