My wife and I were visiting the Petco in Cambridge, Massachusetts today, and we met the most wonderful orange tabby named Chaucer. Chaucer is beautiful cat who is recovering from a horrific attack in which someone poured bleach on him. He received burns on 25% of his body. Thankfully, volunteers at St Meow's, a Cambridge no-kill facility, rescued Chaucer and nursed his wounds. Apart from a few patches where he's still healing, he's looking healthy and happy. Now he just needs a new home.

We have actually seen Chaucer twice at the Petco in the last 10 days, but today was the first day we got to know him. He is so sweet and loving, we would do anything to take him home ourselves. But because we already have two cats and our lease won't let us take in a third, our hands our tied. But we were so touched by Chaucer that we decided to post this message today.

We have no affiliation whatsoever with St. Meow's. We're just doing this because we met a beautiful cat in need of a caring family and want to help out in whatever way we can.

To learn more about Chaucer, please visit this web page. You can also contact St. Meow's directly at 617-767-6294 or saintmeows [at]

If you're looking to bring a pet into your life, please pay Chaucer a visit.
