Paolo’s Adventures is the tale of a very brave little kitty who was born in the wild with his siblings. Paolo and his siblings were rescued and brought into a foster home. When this small kitten played, he ran out of breath very quickly. This was due to a concave ribcage, pushing his heart and lungs to the side. Paolo had a surgery to correct this and wore a body cast while his body healed. Along the way, Paolo learned how to trust people in his journey of healing.
Paolo was brought to MEOW (Mercer Island Eastside Orphans and Waifs) Cat Rescue for his surgery. MEOW is a non-profit, no-kill cat and dog rescue organization that helps many animals such as Paolo. A percentage of the net proceeds will be graciously donated to MEOW.
