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!

Gonzo, gray tabby  Gonzo, one of our resident special-needs cats, has been at the vet, and will return to Thundering Paws today. He has lost weight in recent weeks. Our goal is to get his health problems back under control.  Gonzo is very much at home here at Thundering Paws, where he receives the special care that he needs.

Rusty, a brown tabby with white  Rusty is another of our special-needs cats.  Like Gonzo, he's quite friendly, and is greatly loved at Thundering Paws. At the moment, he's in good health, and is adoptable to the right person.  Contact us if you'd like to provide a home for an older cat.

Your donations make it possible for us to provide a sanctuary for Gonzo, Rusty, and other special-needs cats.  Please see our donate page for ways to give online.  To donate directly to Gonzo's medical care, contact Lake Austin Blvd Animal Hospital, (512) 474-8888 or labah.com/contact, and ask to make a payment on the account of Thundering Paws.  Thank you for caring!

 Bella the tabby]

Bella is an adult kitty, easy to care for, friendly but not needy.  Her former people didn't like her, and she learned to cope by hiding, and swiping at people who treated her unkindly, without ever hurting anyone. She's a pretty easy-going cat. She doesn't crave constant attention, and needs an adopter who isn't demanding either. If you do yoga or other floor exercises, she'll reward you by rubbing against you affectionately; she seems to like having someone on the floor at her level. She's a pretty cat.

Ready to adopt?  Fill out our adoption application.  To arrange to meet Bella, use our contact form.
