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!

Happy Birthday to Fleur Marie!  She's the personal cat of our director, Anne Zabolio.  Life is wonderful with an adult cat.  We'll have lots of kittens available for adoption soon, but if you're looking to adopt, please consider an adult cat like Bella, Blue and Ollie, Mohawk, or Whisper, or the others listed on our "Adopt" page.

Here's a video slideshow of the three kittens we call "The Potatoes".  Their mom is Hanna, a friendly long-haired tabby.  She is raising them in a Thundering Paws foster home, so they can get used to living in a house with people.  Hanna and the Potatoes -- all female -- will be adoptable after she is done raising them, probably in July.

 

To help us care for all the Thundering Paws kittens, visit our online "Kitten Shower" --

Fleur Marie's virtual Kitten Shower for Thundering Paws kittens

Or go to our sponsorship page, where mother cats, and some kittens, are listed until they're ready for adoption. Our long-term resident animals are listed there as well.

Jake the German Shepherd Dog was recently rescued from a cruel situation. He's a very nice dog; he's been good with other dogs and with cats. Update, July 2017: After appearing briefly at our Sunday adoption events, Jake has been adopted!

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.
