Cats can live up to 20 years, so it is not uncommon for them to either outlive their owners or become homeless if a long-time owner moves and cannot bring pets. Such is the case with Chunky and Patches, two older kittens looking for new homes and people to love. They are among many pets of all ages who wish to be adopted through Kitty Connection, a Medford-based no-kill animal rescue organization, offering adoptions in the greater Boston area and the north and south coasts. All of them would love to have you home forever.


Chunky is a handsome eight- to nine-year-old whose owner moved away and left him with a family member who couldn’t look after him. He’s sad at the moment but generally a friendly, sociable guy who will settle down well in his new home after a while to adapt. Chunky’s only health problem is a minor one – a heart murmur that doesn’t affect his ability to live long, happy lives with his new family.

Chunky (Marie Mazzeo)


Twelve year old patches are a kind, gentle, loving soul. He and his siblings were homeless when their owner died. They comfort each other and hope that there will be someone with a big heart who will give both of them a new home together. They promise to be great companions.

Patches and Chunky are neutered, have their rabies and distemper vaccines, and have been examined by a veterinarian and tested negative for the Feline Immunodeficiency and Feline Leukemia viruses.
