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:
