Michael No. 25A is a male 5-month-old orange short-haired tiger cat brought to the Maui Humane Society's Puunene shelter on July 12. He was brought to the shelter because a member of his former family was allergic to cats. Michael can take rough handling from children, according to shelter staff who said: "Michael is bomb proof. You can let a child fall on him and he just gets back up purring. And he's very playful too. He will chase a rope toy or pounce on a jingle bell, and he is a veteran at playing dress up."
