Meatball Memorial Fund

Meatball was a very special, wobbly kitten who didn’t develop normally like his siblings. His worried foster mom took him to the Cat Doctor, where he was ultimately diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a rare neurological disorder that caused fluid to build around his brain. This handsome little guy didn’t understand why his body wouldn’t do what he wanted it to. Lucky for him, he had the whole Cat Doctor staff to take care of him, and even developed quite a following of fans on his “Meatblog.” Sadly, Meatball only lived for four short months. His family at the Cat Doctor missed him so much that they decided to team up with City Kitties to establish the Meatball Memorial Fund. This fund, administered by City Kitties, provides top-notch veterinary care to special needs felines. The Cat Doctor, in return, provides Meatball’s beneficiaries with one month of free boarding. To read more about Meatball’s special friends, check out the City Kitties Facebook page and the Cat Doctor Facebook page.

Make a Donation in Memory of a Pet

City Kitties understands that pets are members of the family, and experiencing their loss can be heartbreaking. With a memorial gift to City Kitties, you can honor the memory of a loyal companion by helping a homeless cat or kitten find a loving home. When you make a memorial gift in any amount, you will receive a printable PDF card acknowledging your contribution. The card features an image of Seven, a foster cat we miss very much, and the simple message, “With Sympathy.” The inner text reads, “In honor of your beloved pet, a gift has been made to City Kitties Rescue to help homeless cats and kittens.”

Donate by clicking on the button below. Once your donation is complete, click the “Return to City” button and you will be directed to a webpage to print your PDF card on any color printer. 

Please note that we cannot guarantee your donation will go towards any one pet; we distribute donations to where they are most needed. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by the law.
