Maryanne and her kittens

There’s still time to GIVE — to get some very special kitties ready for adoption!  Our goal: to raise $1,642 in vet fees for the 16 kittens and mamas brought to Thundering Paws in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Maryanne and her kittens

Maryanne came to Thundering Paws with her five tiny kittens.  Their house, near the Texas coast in Victoria county, had been destroyed by the flooding.  She patiently raised the kittens at Thundering Paws.  They all look different.  There are three girls: tabby-and-white Becky Sue, part-siamese Mary Ellen, and blue Dixie Lee; and two boys: black Billy Bob and tabby John Boy.  They're now weaned and soon will be big enough to be spayed and neutered.

Please help us get them ready for adoption, by Bankrolling a Kitten.  Thank you!
