FUN-LOVING LADY WITH PRETTY WHITE MITTENS WANTS TO SPOIL YOU AND ENTERTAIN YOU

My name is Alice, I'm in foster care. I’m a fun-loving goofy 12 year old girl. I’m black and white, with a black face, white whiskers, and a little white streak between my eyes. Wait I forgot to mention my lovely white 'tuxedo' covering my chest and tummy - and the matching snowy white mittens on my lovely paws.

I am a relaxed girl with a god sense of humor. I really like to ham it up and tilt my head to the side and give my foster mom a dog-like “er?” look. It makes her laugh every time. I’m a bit oversized which means I have lots of love to give you - and I do love to spoil my purrson with love and attention. I love to sleep on my foster’s bed, right next to her pillow so that I can watch out for her at night. I'm hoping you'll want a soft, warm friend on your pillow too so I can bring you the sweetest dreams.

I’m a food motivated kitty, and you should see how fast I can run if there’s food involved. With enough treats and patience, I might let you teach me a trick or two. On second thought, I may just eat the treats. It all depends on what I think of your trick.

My mom was caring for another mature girl like me named Cinnamon. To our joy, Cinammon was recently adopted by a rare kind of special purrson. Like my friend Cinnamon, I also have tested at the high end of the normal range for kidney values, and I was labeled “pre-kidney failure.' But WAIT.

Wait, wait, wait. I don't want you to run away. My foster mom cares for another cat here who has also been labeled as pre-kidney, but he has been here for three years and he’s still going strong.

I ask you to think of it like this: if the doctor tells you you’re pre-diabetic or predisposed to a heart attack, do you just give up? Of course not. You will watch your diet make a few healthy changes and go right on living your life. It is the SAME way with me. I am quite busy living my life, making my foster mom laugh, bringing her pillow talk and sweet dreams at night, and running after treats. (in fact, I'm so busy running after them that I have no time to sit still and have my picture taken. ha.)

My friend Cinnamon's luck is proof that there are very special adopters out there. If you are one of those people, it would simply be my pleasure to meet you.

Let me spoil and entertain you. It's what I do best. We will have a wonderful time together. I live with my foster mom but it's very easy to arrange a meeting and get more information about me. You can start by completing an online adoption application. Make sure to enter Alice in the cat you would like to meet. Visit the 'How to Adopt' page for more adoption information.

I am most grateful for your consideration.

Your fun-loving furry friend,
Alice

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.)
- Profeed at Bradlee Shopping Center on Saturdays and Sundays (1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
- Petsmart at Falls Church on 3rd/4th Sunday 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.
