Is it who’s or whose?

Who's. This is a contraction of who is or who has. Who's that over there? Who's left me a voicemail? Whose. This indicates something belonging to someone. Whose pen is this? You are the person whose company I most enjoy. Think: who is or who has? If it's neither, it's whose. Cherry Edits (Indies)

For everyone who gets who’s and whose confused…

If it’s not who is/who has, it’s whose.
