The last of the sweet “Candy Cats” is looking for a Candyland she can call home.

Hershey Kiss (aka Fat Cat): June 10, 2020 – Adult Female

Hershey Kiss is a sweet and loving girl who enjoys being held and pet. You’ll know when she’s enjoying being pet because she will drool! Hershey Kiss lived with many cats in her previous home and didn’t do well, which is why she resorted to being an outside porch cat. She is in the process of transitioning from being a porch cat to being an inside cat. If you’re looking for an affectionate lap cat that will sleep with you at night, Hershey Kiss may be the perfect cat for you! This loving lady has a lot of love to give. She needs a home with no cats or dogs so she can be the center of your attention.

Hershey Kiss: April 30, 2020 – In the arms of her advocate. Kiss is completely black so she blends in with her advocate’s shirt, making it hard to see her.

Hershey Kiss has been spayed, has a microchip and age-appropriate vaccines. We estimate she was born in the fall of 2016.

Hershey Kiss is friendly and looking for a loving home where she can get all the affection she wants. If you are interested in Hershey Kiss, please fill out an application below.


A while ago, we had posted asking for food and litter donations for a veteran we are helping. To recap slightly, his kindness, and love of cats, helped him to rescue many stray and abandoned cats. However, as the number grew, he was no longer able to afford spays and neuters, and the situation grew out of hand. As the population of cats in his care grew to over 30, he reached out to The Feline Connection for some help. These cats are known as the “Candy Cats.”
