Handsome has the best paws in the world. They are very large, with white scalloped ends and tufts of fur coming out of the bottom of the paws. When he is being petted he kneads the floor and shows off these beautiful paws.
Handsome loves to be petted and loves to sit in the middle of the space between the kitchen and the dining room watching the action as his foster parents get food prepared, breakfast, lunch or dinner doesn’t matter. He also sits between the foster parents at breakfast time waiting to be petted.
Bella and Handsome and four other cats were found dumped outside an apartment block after the people had been moved out. They were all trapped by volunteers who help with several organizations. One was immediately put up for adoption and five were placed in foster homes.
Handsome, originally named Hissy Boy by the trappers, has come such a long way. When he first arrived at the foster home he hid under a towel in the bathtub and hissed at anything that came close. It was clear he had been abused as any loud noise or the beginnings of a raised hand resulted in him running and hiding. Once settled in the foster home, his foster mother decided he needed a new name that he could grow into and renamed him Handsome Boy, now just Handsome. Handsome, with the help of his sister Bella has done beautifully.
He is a curious cat that watches and takes in everything. Now when his foster parents have company for dinner Handsome inspects each guest and ensures those he knows fulfill their job of petting and admiring him. Handsome loves to sleep on the rug next to a heated wall and at the bottom of the stairs to the second floor. He is the guard cat of the main floor.
In an ideal world Bella and Handsome would go to the same new home, however they would both be fine in a home of their own. Handsome would love to be the newest addition to your family where he can get lots of attention.
