That cat won't be the only pussy in Anthony Chicken's life now that he's
back on the market.

GUILDERLAND – A 46-year-old man here whose heart has been broken twice in the last decade is ready to take a chance on love again, his family said.

Anthony Chickens, a Guilderland native whose parents instilled in him morals, a strong work ethic and a relentless desire to give back to the community, is a  “definite catch for the right gal,” said his sister, Marcy Chickens-Keebler of Rexford.

“My little brother is going to be out there and it’s going to be scary at first for him. But heck, if anybody can handle this it’s Anthony,” the proud sister told The Smudge.

“He’s a good boy,” added his mother, Henrietta. “And, he is cute as a button, too.”

Chickens — a computer programmer with a dynamite collection of Bruce Springsteen memorabilia — dated “some girl named Sue something” in 2006, but it didn’t work out, said his mom.

The love bug then bit Chickens again in 2013 when he began dating Penelope Love, a secretary whom he met shopping for slipcovers. They broke up in August when Love reluctantly left to take a job in Alaska, where she grew up on a walrus farm.

“He still loves her,” Henrietta said softly, fighting back a tear. “He thought she was the real thing. Wholesome girl. Real wife material. We were all pulling for them.”

“Stop it, mom! Don’t be so hung up on Anthony's past,” Chickens’ sister interjected.  “We are very excited now for Anthony's future!”

Anyone with information about a girl who might be right for Anthony Chickens is asked to contact his family. All calls will be kept confidential.

"Um... ,” said Anthony’s father, Max, a man of few words. “My son is a helluva gentleman. Please print that."
