About the McFly Memorial Fund

McFly was an 8 month old feral kitten who had adopted a family that feeds and shelters strays. While he knew where he lived, he always kept a safe distance from the family who cared for him.

In June of 2012 McFly had a traumatic event occur, and he crawled to the humans that he had watched from afar, knowing they would help. His family immediately recognized the severity of his injuries and McFly allowed them to render first aid, then be picked up, placed in a carrier and driven to someplace very foreign to him. His injuries required him to be treated and hospitalized at Barton Heights Veterinary Hospital for a few days short of a month. He had a broken pelvis, torn urethra, severe skin wounds, and problems with the kidneys. He was a wonderful cat that needed intensive critical care and multiple surgeries to treat his condition. Despite all the surgeries and treatments he went through, he was a very loving cat in the hospital, enjoying all the attention the staff was giving him. He would eat almost immediately no matter how he was feeling. Unfortunately McFly unexpectedly succumbed to his injuries, but McFly’s mom and dad and Barton Heights Veterinary Hospital have set up a memorial fund in McFly’s name.

The McFly Fund is designed to help stray animals and animals in need of assistance. Please help those animals that are less fortunate.
