Hello friends! My name is Oxo, and I am a soft, silky girl born in 2014.  Somehow I found myself all alone in the world, outside and hungry. My trusting instincts led me to the back porch of a kind person who gave me some good food and introduced me to King Street Cats. I am glad I trusted my instincts because I am now safe and sound, awaiting my forever home.

The holidays are coming, and the one thing on my wishlist is my very own forever home with a kind human who will appreciate my quiet demeanor, gentle disposition and sweet personality. My name comes from the symbols people use to indicate hugs and kisses in written correspondence - you know, like "xoxo..." That's because I am an affectionate little girl who wants to show you my love.

I would love to be there for you when you come home. I will provide you with f aithful friendship and the sound of contented kitten purrs. I love to sit in sunny spots and watch the world go by. I'm quiet and not intrusive. I have excellent manners. I'm very helpful too - I'll assist you with the dishwashing by testing to water quality of the nice, cool water coming from your kitchen sink faucet if you'll let me! I'm demonstrating this skill for you in some of my photos. 

I am a small cutie pie with jet black, short fur and bright eyes that change from green to gold depending on the lighting conditions. I'm silky and soft and you'll love petting me and being near me. 

I want to meet you! I know what it's like to be alone outdoors and I know that's not the kind of life I am cut out for - I am an indoor kitty, destined to provide my purrson with happiness.

Please visit the King Street Cats Facebook page and look for me as the featured cat of the day for Friday, November 25, 2016!

Gently yours,

About King Street Cats

About Our Shelter...

We are proud to be the only cat-exclusive orphanage in Alexandria, Va. We have been in operation since 2003, and were previously known as The Albert Foundation for many years before becoming King Street Cats. Because we are a free-roaming and no-kill cat orphanage, we have the "cat-friendliest cats" in town! Our primary purpose is to educate and assist the community in regard to cat welfare, and to provide loving homes for the cats and kittens in our care. We accomplish this through outreach to the local community by providing information on proper cat care, behavioral problems and medical issues involving cats. We also assist local residents in locating and retrieving lost cats and assist individuals through the cat adoption process. We provide abandoned and rescued cats and kittens with a safe and secure temporary home until a permanent, loving home can be found.

We promote spaying and neutering and all our cats and kittens are sterilized and fully up-to-date on all medical care prior to adoption. We also provide post-adoption support for adopters and anyone else that needs cat care advice. Because we only work in the area of cat welfare .... we know cats! Please stop by and visit with our friendly cats.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoptions at 25 Dove St (the King Street Cat home) are every Saturday and Sunday from 1:30 to 4:30 pm

Additional Adoption Events:
- Petco at Beacon Hill on the first Saturday of the month (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process is simple. When you come to the adoption center, you will fill out an application and a volunteer will interview you and ask about your cat knowledge and experience as well as your other pets. If your application is approved, they will help match you to the cat is perfect for your home and lifestyle. Some adult cats may be adopted singly, but we prefer to adopt out kittens in pairs unless you have a playful cat or dog already in residence to keep the kitten company.

King Street Cats asks for a $125 non-refundable adoption fee to adopt a cat or kitten, or $225 to adopt two. The fee includes:

- A cat that has been to a vet and tested for FELV/FIV. They are not put up for adoption unless the tests are negative (although sometimes we do have an FIV-positive cat that is healthy and can be adopted).
- An adult cat that is up-to-date on vaccinations before being made available for adoption. (Kittens will have had vaccinations appropriate for their age)
- Cats and kittens are spayed or neutered before they are placed for adoption. Kittens are spayed/neutered between 12-14 weeks and are then available for adoption.
- Post-adoption support: our volunteers are very knowledgeable about cat care. We encourage adopters to call us with any questions.
