In their 2006 form 990s KittyKind’s income was declared to be about $210,000. Maddie’s Fund awarded KittyKind, a Mayor’s Alliance APO, $49,000 in grant money for 2007 and in the Spring of 2008 an additional $25,000 which was for special needs cat adoptions. Although the Judge at a trial in 2007 said to KittyKind’s attorney, from the law firm of Vernon & Ginsburg, “I advise your client to give this woman some kind of compensation because we have just been to trial and she can do whatever she wants to with this information."

Despite the attorney's protestations about how wonderful the group was the Judge also told the attorney, "I don’t know how other groups operate but from what I have heard, this group has taken advantage of this kind hearted woman for over $25,000”. Referring to a lawsuit in which “this woman”, a World Trade Center survivor, who lives on disability and who because of continued promises for reimbursement, paid for many KittyKind vet bills for fostered cats the year 2004.

Isn’t it coincidental that KittyKind received $25,000 from Maddie’s Fund, according to the Maddies Fund Jan/Feb 2008 newsletter, and that this amount would satisfy the claims of this woman yet, KittyKind has failed to respond in any way to the Judge’s recommendation that some kind of compensation be made to her? At this point it is beyond illogical for KittyKind to claim that they “just don’t have the money.” KittyKind also claimed that these cats were not KittyKind rescues.

Because these fosters were taken in good faith with repeated verbal promises that these expenses would be reimbursed, this woman – as was the case with many regular KittyKind adoption representatives and volunteers, was never given Foster Forms by KittyKind to fill out – even though other Individual foster people were required to fill out foster forms. The Judge made his decision based on lack of paperwork although KittyKind also claimed a lack paperwork for the Five cats they admitted were theirs.
