Handsome Clark Gable is waiting to woo you with his charming voice. Here at the shelter, we have all fallen for this guy. Clark is super social and always wants to spend time with you but would prefer you send your love his way with your eyes. He is a bit unsure of all the petting and touching some cats enjoy and he would rather have your affection in other ways. Clark would love a companion to talk to and to just simply hang out with. He is super food motivated and enjoys playing with treat puzzles.

Making it to a shelter is often just the first step on the long road to recovery for sick and abused animals. You can do something to help an animal needing urgent care.
