Fosters needed for Hurricane Harvey 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.

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!

Isn't it time that Austin joined the ranks of other progressive cities with its own cat cafe?

Blue Cat Cafe wants to make it happen, and they are near the halfway point on their Kickstarter campaign.

Fostering for us is fun and rewarding!

Have you ever considered becoming a foster parent to an animal in need? If so, Thundering Paws would love to talk with you. Foster parents enable us to save more pets, and allow an animal to live in a home environment while it awaits adoption by its forever family.

As a foster parent, you will learn the animal’s personality and help Thundering Paws find a family that is a good match for the pet. You can trust that our experienced Adoption Coordinators will screen the applicant to make sure your foster pet goes to a safe loving home.

A Carriage full of Kittens!

Lisa and Fiona Siciliani were sidelined along a ditch when they discovered a litter of seven (!) mewling kittens and their starved-but-friendly mother. They gamely took up the mom and kittens, naming the mom Millie and the kittens after Ewoks!

Foster Homes Needed

We currently have a number of animals in need of good foster homes.

Boat kittens
Two of the boat kittens

The six boat kittens--Raul, Raya, Solange, Solace, Victor, and Isabel, need a new place to stay. These are all friendly outgoing tabby kittens, about 5 months old, cute as can be. And you don't have to take them all! Fostering even one or two would be a great help.

China, Update

Since the last update, China kitty has continued to make incredible progress in getting well and becoming more tame. She has not returned to eating canned food with her antibiotic mixed in, but she will gobble down as much dry food as I give her without ever seeming to get full. Without her teeth, she sort of inhales her dry food! As for her antibiotic (and a steroid she has to take for a while), she has become much more tolerant of my squirting it in her mouth, probably because it is mixed with salmon juice.

China

At Thundering Paws animal sanctuary, the opportunity to help improve the lives of our animals in big ways presents itself each and every day. You don't have to look for the opportunities; they almost come flying at you. Many sanctuary animals have been lost, abandoned, or given up for various reasons (sometimes not very good reasons). These animals often come to us hurt, or sick. This is where China the feral kitty comes in.

Common Questions: Where Do Our Cats Come From?

Blog author: 
Anne Zabolio

This is the second most frequently asked question when people find out my occupation. We have taken them out of Town Lake Animal Center and other "kill" shelters. We have taken them from people who can no longer keep their cats. Some have walked up the driveway. Once I was driving down Mopac and saw a cat sitting atop the concrete barrier by the side of the freeway, speeding cars on one side and a fifty foot drop on the other. It was a harrowing rescue, but he let me pick him up. However, the main way we get cats now is through our volunteers.
