Thanks to Mother's Cafe, for hosting another day for Thundering Paws recently.  And thanks to all who attended!  Here are some of the rescue kitties you are supporting:

Mohawk  Serene   Bella   Jones

Mohawk, Serene, Bella and Mr Jones are are all adoptable.  Mohawk is a cuddly sweetheart, black with golden eyes and a short tail, rescued in Dripping Springs, TX. She's about 4 year old.  Blue-and-white Serene was a homeless cat in southwest Austin. He's about 3 to 4 years old, friendly and seems to get along OK with other cats.  Bella, brown tabby with white, about 10 years old, was abandoned in Oak Hill; she does not seem to like other cats.  Mr Jones, a black kitty about two-and-a-half years old, mellow and friendly, was rescued along the Texas coast.  To meet any of them, please fill out our adoption form.


Marla is a rescue kitty in east Texas.  Learn more about her here.

Bandit, and adoptable young kitty Bandit P

Bandit, shown on the left, is the son of mother cat Kathy, and like his mother, has tested positive for the cat virus FIV. Cats with FIV can live long, happy lives. They just need to be monitored for infections and dental issues. If they’re well cared for, they can be healthy, happy, wonderful pets. 

Bandit P, the son of Petra, has dark classic-tabby markings.  His forehead is not as dark, at least in these pictures.

Look for both "Bandits" at our adoption events, along with Kathy, and Petra's other sons Tucker P and Smalls, and others.  To arrange a meeting with any of them, fill out our adoption form.  Thank you!

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.

Can you provide a foster home for a rescue cat (or dog)?  Many were displaced by the flooding of Hurricane Harvey.  They need homes until they are adopted.  If you can provide a foster home, please fill out a foster application.

Please print, fill out, and scan (or take pictures of each page) and return to us, by email to info@thunderingpaws.org.  Feel free to cut & paste from the application into an email or document editor (such as Microsoft Word or Apple Pages), if that makes it easier to fill out.

If you can't foster, please donate for the Hurricane Harvey kittens.  For other ways to give, see our Donate pageThank you, and thanks for all you do for animals.

We have two adoption events this weekend. The first is at Whole Pets in Dripping Springs on Saturday, 11am to 3pm. We plan to show the black cat Mr. Jones, and sisters Eefa and Ashling.  The tabby brothers Smokey and Nine, and some of Gracie's kittens, are also a possibility.

On Sunday at Petsmart in Bee Cave, 12noon to 4pm, meet kittens Paolo and Polly, Clara and Charles (Charlie Chaplin), Hanna and her kittens Idaho and Yukon Gold, and the cuddly tortoiseshell kitten Mazama. We hope to bring others.

Members of our adoption team will be at both events, to answer your questions, and to facilitate introductions.

There was a tropical storm warning, and our regular Saturday adoption event, at Whole Pets in Dripping Springs, was not held on August 26.  [ Our other event, at Petsmart in Bee Cave on Aug. 27, happened as usual. When another major storm reaches the Austin area, look for road closure information here.  Remember, don't drive through moving water! ]

Schmidt is from the mother cat Petra. Petra and her kittens have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated, and are ready for adoption. [ Update 9/4/2017: Schmidt's adoption is pending. His siblings Simba and Tabitha have been adopted. ]

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!
