Handsome Comet is seeking a forever family to have adventures with.

Comet is a young guy that loves to play. He will turn 1-year-old in mid-January. In true boy kitty fashion, Comet loves exploring.

Unlike a lot of other cats, Comet loves meeting new people and will let you hold him and carry him around the room for short periods of time. Staff at the Humane Society of South Central Michigan (HSSCM) say this young guy loves playing with toys and the other active cats at HSSCM.

This boy would do well in many types of homes. Comet has long hair so it would be ideal for his forever family to have experience with the grooming needs of long-haired cats.

Comet would do great in a home with children 6-years or older so he has someone to play with and help keep him active. He would also love to be in a home with another young cat.

Comet would likely adjust to a cat-friendly dog with the right slow introduction.

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
