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:

 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.

Sparky and Mohawk are two female cats who were abandoned in the Dripping Springs area. Now they are enjoying life at a foster home, and will be available for adoption soon. We think they're about 3 years old.  Sparky is very clever, just as sweet as can be, and adores being petted. Mohawk is a cuddly, plump cat with a short tail and coppery-gold eyes.
