Hi, this is Jinx. He came to us as a very young, kitten. When he was brought to PFAC we were very concerned because he has a very horrible condition. He has Pectus Excavatum, which is a deformity of the chest bone. Since he was so small, it was extremely hard for him to breath. This meant that we could NOT let him get sick or he would have passed away. Luckily, since he has gotten bigger it has gotten a little better. Now that his chest is larger, he has more room making it easier to breath. He will always have this condition, but it does not bother him. He is a sweet guy and loves other animals and attention.
