An orphaned kitten made his way to Community Cat Club, a South Jersey animal rescue in need of foster care.

During his entrance test at the vet, they noticed that his chest was inverted, and he was having difficulty breathing.

The kitten was born with pectus excavatum, a sternum and rib cage deformity.

Sara Sharp, the founder of CCC, took him in, so he could be constantly observed while they sought the best therapy for the worthy kid.

Despite his handicap, the kitten, called Leroy, was an immediate bundle of excitement.

He refused to be slowed down and went around and played as if nothing had occurred.

Leroy was born with a deformed chest, but he never let it bother him.

After consulting with a doctor, they determined that the kitten required immediate chest surgery.

Leroy was around five weeks old and weighed about one pound when he went in for surgery to save his life.

It was nothing short of amazing that the tiny cat survived the grueling procedure and instantly began purring when he awoke.

He was outfitted with a chest plate and a custom-made vest. Sara transformed colorful socks into adorable kitten-sized jackets, and Leroy looked great in each one.

Leroy started his mending process so that his ribs could develop and extend in the proper shape.

He underwent weekly vet appointments and wore many jackets to protect his chest.

Around the same time, another rescued kitten called Poppy was looking for a feline companion. She, too, came to the rescue as a singleton, like Leroy.
