About Carolyn Banguero

Carolyn Banguero has a Master's in Teaching, has taught third grade for eight years and loves reading books to children. She volunteers each week at MEOW Cat Rescue in Kirkland, Washington, where she first learned about a cat named Paolo, who was found in the wild. Paolo was born with defect. His chest was concave and the heart and lungs were pushed over to the side, making breathing difficult. To save this brave cat, Paolo had surgery at MEOW Cat Rescue. Carolyn wrote a children's book titled Paolo's Adventures about this cat's journey of learning how to trust people and healing. A percentage of the net proceeds will be graciously donated to MEOW Cat Rescue. In her spare time, Carolyn enjoys salsa dancing and traveling. She lives in Newcastle, Washington with her husband, Edgar, her cats Gia and Kensey and her dog, Jana. Carolyn can be contacted at For more current photos and information about Paolo, visit
