I've had my cat years. He was a rescue cat so I am not sure

Customer Question

I've had my cat for 6 years. He was a rescue cat so I am not sure how old he is as he was an adult when I got him. He has always been sweet and loving and friendly but lately he has been going extremly overboard with this behavior. He follows me everywhere around the house constantly meowing. If I am sitting on the couch relaxing and not giving him my undivided attention he will literally hit me in my face with his paw until I pet him and if I stop he will hit me again. This is all the time. He doesn't seem sick and is eating and drinking normally so I'm not sure what the new neediness is.
