Dwight the kitten

Thanks to everyone who has "bankrolled a kitten"

Dwight the kitten is going to the vet this week, to evaluate a possible heart murmur.  According to his foster family, "Dwight is the sweetest little kitten.  He seeks humans out for petting and cuddling and is very affectionate.  He loves to be held and cuddled and will give you little kisses!  He is going to make someone a wonderful and loving pet."

Huckleberry and Plink

Plink and his brother Huckleberry are ready for adoption!  Huckleberry (solid black chin) is friendly, outgoing, affectionate and a little talker. Plink (white chin with a black spot) is a little shy but quick to follow his brother's lead. They have THE softest medium length hair and golden eyes to melt your heart. They would love to be adopted together!

Prince and Phoenix at the vet

Prince has had a lot of vet care lately. The last few days he's been at Lake Austin Blvd Animal Hospital (LABAH), after losing his appetite and losing weight, which may be a result of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The good people at LABAH are working hard to help him.

Kittens, kittens galore!

kittensNevermind the rain, the sanctuary is flooded with kittens this season! Just last week, we vaccinated nearly two dozen kittens at Thundering Paws!

Thank goodness for all the volunteers who have been willing to foster these cuties while we search for their forever homes.

Please have a look on our adoption page for adoptable kittens, or click on the links below. Note that we still need to post bios on many of them and that there are more kittens to come!

Watch Rufus Grow! (Chapter 4)

GREAT NEWS! Rufus has playmates!

Last we posted, we were in the dark about FIV transmission between mom cat and kittens.  Having talked to many veterinarians and read much literature on the subject, we have learned that Rufus can be with other kittens and cats safely.  They won't contract FIV.  The virus doesn't pass through mucous membranes, which means that there has to be a penetrating bite to infect another cat.  The danger is nil.

Watch Rufus Grow! (Chapter 2)

Little Rufus finally opened his eyes this week!

Kittens' eyes usually open around ten days of age.  However, Rufus, who was born 3/8/2015 (as estimated by his weight), didn't open his eyes until he was TWENTY-THREE DAYS OLD!  This is a record for Thundering Paws. 

Rufus opens his eyes!

Now fully open, his eyes will probably stay blue as it looks like he is a Siamese mix kitten.
