My name is Cookie, and I was first adopted from King Street Cats as a tiny kitten in 2010. Due to a change in life circumstances, my family wasn't able to keep me. That made me sad, but happily I am back at King Street Cats where I know I'll find the purrfect forever home in no time.

I was born in 2010, so I am a lovely girl in the prime of my life. This is a very nice age at which to adopt me because I'm settled and my sweet personality has been well established. I'm going to thrive best as your "one and only" with no other cats or dogs. This way I won't have to share you and can focus all of my energy on building a deep bond with you. 

I'm a jet black girl with splashes of snowy white, big bright green eyes, and the cutest set of little ears that you will ever see. If you are looking for a calm and sweet best friend, please come to meet me. I was such a good girl in my first home and that's what I want to be for you too.

Please, come and meet me, at KSC's weekly open-house. You can start by completing an online adoption application. Make sure to enter Cookie in the cat you would like to meet. Visit the "How to Adopt" page for more adoption information.

Your sweetheart,

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.

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.
