Eefa the kitten's left hind leg is too badly damaged to regain function. Surgery to remove the leg will happen this week.

Carolina the cat will have surgery to repair a broken front paw.  Carolina and her kittens were rescued from flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. They and are now in a Thundering Paws foster home.

You can help by making an online donation for these surgeries.

Update 9/17/2017:  Eefa and Carolina are recovering from surgery.  Many thanks to all who have donated toward the cost of Eefa's surgery! Eefa will be at our adoption events.  Carolina now has a metal implant to hold the bone together. It turns out Carolina's operation was the more expensive. Please donate to help cover the cost. Thank you!


You may also donate for Hurricane Harvey kittens.  More on each family is on the Sponsor pages for Aria, Carolina, and Maryanne.  For other ways to give, see our Donate pageThank you, and thanks for all you do for animals.

We have some special-needs cats who don't have sponsors, including Earl Grey, Martina, and Eefa:

Earl Grey Martina Eefa

Earl Grey is grieving after the loss of his beloved person, and Thundering Paws is giving him the time he needs to adjust. Please sponsor Earl to help pay for his care.  Martina gets daily medicine to control chronic stomatitis, at a cost of about $40/month. Your sponsorship of Martina, in any amount, will help cover the cost.  Eefa is a kitten with a deformed leg, who needs surgery. Please sponsor Eefa to help make that happen.  Thank you for sponsoring, and thanks for all you do for animals!

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.

Update 7/25/207: We had the sexes wrong. The siamese-mix is a male, now called Paolo. The tabby is a female. They're about the same size now, and soon available for adoption.

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:
