Fleur Marie is 15 today!

Happy Birthday to Fleur Marie!  She's the personal cat of our director, Anne Zabolio.  Life is wonderful with an adult cat.  We'll have lots of kittens available for adoption soon, but if you're looking to adopt, please consider an adult cat like Bella, Blue and Ollie, Mohawk, or Whisper, or the others listed on our "Adopt" page.

Reminder: There's a few days left in Fleur's "Kitten Shower" for all those Thundering Paws kittens. Please donate to help us get them all ready for adoption!

Here's a video slideshow of the three kittens we call "The Potatoes".  Their mom is Hanna, a friendly long-haired tabby.  She is raising them in a Thundering Paws foster home, so they can get used to living in a house with people.  Hanna and the Potatoes -- all female -- will be adoptable after she is done raising them, probably in July.

 

To help us care for all the Thundering Paws kittens, visit our online "Kitten Shower" --

Or go to our sponsorship page, where mother cats, and some kittens, are listed until they're ready for adoption. Our long-term resident animals are listed there as well.

Paolo and Polly the kittens

Paolo and Polly were two homeless kittens, found with eye infections.  Unfortunately, Polly's left eye was so badly infected it had to be surgically removed.  The two kittens have recovered, are now in a foster home.  When they're old enough, they'll receive all their vaccinations, will be neutered and spayed, and be ready for adoption.

Help pay for Paolo and Polly's medical care.

This spring, we've taken in more than two dozen kittens, to get them ready for adoption later this year.  We need help covering the cost of food and veterinary work.  The average veterinary cost, including exam, deworming, flea medication, spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccinations, is $108 per kitten.  Please help by "Bankrolling a Kitten!".

Banroll a Kitten!

In addition to caring for our resident animals, each year Thundering Paws takes in kittens who would otherwise grown up untame and homeless, to find loving homes for them.  It's always better when the kittens come with their mother.

Here are six of the mother cats we've taken in this year. Click or tap on a picture to learn more:

After a number of vet visits, medications to control respiratory and intestinal problems, and extra food each day, Gonzo the gray tabby has put on weight, and seems happier.  He will continue on two daily medicines for colitis/IBD.  Here are pictures of him about a month apart.

In the first picture, notice how his shoulder blades stick out, and his abdomen is sunken toward his spine; he was underweight.  He has gained weight in the second picture:

Gonzo is one of several special-needs cats at Thundering Paws. We depend on donations to provide care for them.  Please sponsor a special-needs cat!
