What We Need This Week

Again we need puppy pads. Here they are really kitten pads. Kittens are such slobs! It's lucky for them that they're so cute.

Summer Is Difficult

While the requests to take adult cats hasn’t slowed down, we now have multiple requests to take kittens. They’re totally precious!

Each kitten needs de-worming with pyrantal (Strongid) at least twice; flea treatment, the type determined by the kitten’s age; three to four FVRCP vaccinations over the course of fostering; a microchip (we now have tiny ones); and a test for feline leukemia, some time after eight weeks of age.

Since we take kittens off the street and from rural shelters, they often have medical problems—intestinal parasites with diarrhea that is difficult to diagnose and control; a limp or broken limb, respiratory issues—all requiring considerable veterinary visits, sometimes with expensive diagnostics or treatments.

Often the adults we take in are likewise compromised. “Perfect” animals are rarely offered to us. They are adopted out by the group that found them.

Donations slack off during the summer, also. This summer will probably be worse than most. People are dying to go on vacations, unfortunately sometimes literally. Young people will be going back to school physically in August and need school supplies and clothes. Whether or not we agree with it, the world is opening back up, and people will be spending more money on their usual concerns rather than donating.

I am asking each one of you to donate a significant amount—whatever is significant to you, whether it be $5 or $5,000—each month, June, July, August, and September. We hope to make it through yet another summer. In July, Thundering Paws will celebrate 20 years of saving cats. Help us stay around another 20 years. I suspect we will be needed for at least that long

Kitty Updates


UPDATE ON CREPES KITTY

The kitty from Crepes Crazy in Dripping Springs, whom the employees there call “Queen,” is doing well. In about a week, she will have her stitches out and hopefully I can share a picture with you then. She’s meowing more and hissing less, definitely a good sign. She’s eating great.
 
UPDATE ON MARTA

We took in a kitty from a veterinary clinic that had taken her in, scanned her, and called and emailed the alleged owner many times, to no avail. The secondary contact on her microchip was Austin Pets Alive (APA.) They were contacted and they wanted her back. Since they have more resources than we do, she has gone back to APA fr treatment for her mouth problems, and re-homing.

It’s delightful when groups helping animals cooperate. We are grateful to APA for helping this sweet cat.

INTRODUCING ACE

Ace, our newest baby boy, is celebrating his ace foster home. He’s no longer homeless, living a life of uncertainty. He is fostered by a lady who has years of experience as a veterinary technician and her family. Her youngest son will begin volunteering for us in July. I have long known there are “kitty whisperer” qualities in that kid!
