Now he's got a sweet setup in the Chatham County Animal Shelter lobby.

Mister Handsome would be in a kennel like the rest of the cats - but he's just too big for it.

Ever since the shelter posted a photo of him, people have fallen in love!

The shelter says they've gotten so much interest - they've had to develop an application process and a raffle before anyone can take him home.
