There are lots of quotes about beauty - that it's "in the eyes of the beholder." That it's "more than skin deep." Even that everyone has it but "not everyone can see it." This week's adoptable kitty is definitely a beautiful little soul - even if he doesn't look like much right now.

Our friends at Posey Humane Society have described this week's adoptable kitty,  Handsome as "the most loving, sweetest cat….EVER!"  It turns out he miraculously found his way to the home of PHS Director, Tina Parker. It was a cold dreary night and Handsome was cold, he was starving and malnourished and he was sick. This sweet guy had a double ear infection, mange and ringworm.

After weeks of care from the wonderful people at Posey Humane Society, Handsome is now ready to be adopted to his forever home - the kind of home where he can be the center of someone's universe, who will shower him with the love and attention he deserves and demands (He's a lover!). While PHS doesn't know his history or whether he would do well with dogs, they say he is ok with other cats, however since he loves attention so much, he might do best as an only cat.
