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!
