Update on Boat Kittens: Isabel, Victor and Solace

In the summer of 2006, a boat arrived for delivery in Austin with a surprise inside: a litter of seven kittens -- all tabbies. We took them to the vet, and one of the kittens was fostered by an employee of the vet clinic and quickly adopted. The other six were fostered by Thundering Paws volunteers and lived together for several weeks.

Isabel, a beautiful classic tabby, was the next one adopted, in January 2007. Two years later, we received this update:

The Best Gift I Gave Myself this Year

This past year, I gave myself a remarkable gift: the gift of feline companionship. In late August, I adopted Peter from Thundering Paws -- by far the best decision I've made in a long time.

The 18-Hour Kitten

Rasputin, a long-haired black kitten, was dumped last night, Monday, at the site where we feed feral cats in Dripping Springs.

Whoever dumped him there knows we come there every day. He is four to five weeks old and was left in a box that a blender came in, along with a tiny empty nursing bottle.  With a cold front with rain threatening on the horizon, he was awaiting the night, when coyotes and other predators could easily kill a tiny kitten like him.

Fabio, Happily Ever After

The story of Fabio, our FIV positive kitty, was chronicled on our website before.

We wanted to find him a home where he could be out of the cage, so we took him to many adoption events. Several times we ALMOST got him adopted. But we would still have to keep him caged, and take him out when we could. It was sad.

Turns out, he was waiting for Melinda.

China Kitty Update, September 2007

Since the last update on China the (formerly) feral cat in February, this kitty has completely moved in to my house. She has made incredible progress in the eight months she has lived here. The physical change has been drastic -- she has gone from somewhere between 3 and 4 pounds when she arrived to about 11 pounds at present.

A Tale of Two Sisters

Sean and Daniela came over to adopt a kitty. This in itself is unusual as we don't advertise our whereabouts, but we felt that these people wouldn't dump 40 animals on us, so we gave them the secret address. When I opened the door, Sean said, "Please see that my wife gets a cat!" Since I had already checked their references and there were tons of kitties from which to choose, I thought that would be pretty easy. It was.

July Remembers

Blog author:

Last September we featured an article on July, a cat who came to Thundering Paws feral, emaciated, and obviously quite ill. She had a wonderful sponsor, Jennifer Pospisil, who paid all her expenses until we could find out what was wrong with her: a glob of plastic in her stomach which interfered with her digestion to the point that she was literally starving to death while eating tons of food.

China, February Update

Since the last update on China the formerly feral kitty, she has made even further amazing progress. Her weight is up to what it should be for a kitty her size (between 7 and 8 pounds) and she looks so different than she did when she was sick.
