This project is a labor of love for me. Last year I started volunteering at the Pets Without Partners pet rescue here in Redding, CA. I really got a great feeling out of helping out with the organization and I decided I wanted to find a way to build awareness about rescue cats and help them. I thought it would be neat to do this through a comic book and an idea was born! I have a lot of great cat stories and adventures to tell and I would love to make the comic book an ongoing series. Part of the proceeds of each issue would go to cat rescues or individual cats with special needs. (Please note: Kickstarter will not allow me to raise money for charitable foundations, so once I am able to get the comic book going, only then will I be able to start donating money to pet rescues and individual cases - In the meantime, Kickstarter will allow me to donate comics to Pets Without Partners as part of the rewards!).
The comic book is titled "Rescue Cats" and it is about 5 cats who are rescued by a family and on the first night in their new home, the cats are struck by lightning and given special powers. The Rescue Cats decide they should use their powers to rescue other cats and some humans as well! Fun and adventure ensue! This is a comic book for all ages that I think everyone will really enjoy reading! This comic will have a minimum of 24 pages.
