Mister Handsome

Mister Handsome

Clinic Cat 

Handsome was first brought to us from Gregory's Gift of Hope Rescue for health issues. The doctors and technicians at Shamrock Animal Hospital nursed him back to health and fell in love with him in the process! Handsome is roughly 5 years old but still acts like a kitten. He's made himself right at home here at the hospital–usually, visitors will find him lounging around the lobby welcoming all our lovely clients and patients. Make sure you say hi to our sweet boy when you stop in!
