Can you give this animal a loving home

Hello! The name’s Hal! I am an eight-year-old Siamese who was found as a stray and turned into the Morinville Vet Clinic. I am a very handsome and very chatty cat! I was neutered, microchiped, tattooed, and vaccinated here at the clinic. The girls have taken such good care of me and now it’s my turn to find a home for myself! I get along well with other animals and I would definitely be considered a people person. Come and visit me and I’m sure we’ll get along great!
