Hello friends, my name is Metro Girl. Now exactly how did I get this name, you wonder? I was found in a cat carrier someone left at a Metro station. Kind people brought me to King Street Cats where I've been loved and cared for by one the KSC's most experienced foster families. My foster mom is so proud of me and knows I'm ready for my own forever home.

We believe I was born in Spring 2013 so I'll turn three (3) years old later this year (2016).  This is a very nice age at which to adopt your forever friend because my personality has settled and I'm young with my life ahead of me yet not rambunctious like a kitten would be. When I say "forever friend" and "life ahead" I mean those things very seriously - while I may be shy initially when we meet, once I know and trust you I am yours forevermore! I am the definition of "devotion" and I would love nothing more than my own purrsonal human(s) who'll take me home to a quiet environment, patiently allow us time to get acquainted, and then enjoy my low-key, loyal companionship.

That personality I was referring to above when I mentioned that three years old is a nice age at which to adopt - mine is described by my KSC friends as "completely sweet." I'm a quiet girl as I said - I like to enjoy sunny spots, keep an eye on my humans and soak up your gentle affection. I like cubby holes and cat trees with hiding spots at the base - I'm demonstrating what I mean in my photo. 

My photo gives you a glimpse but not the full perspective on how lovely I am. I'm a soft, short-haired girl with silver and cinnamon fur shot through with even subtler silver tabby markings. I have almond-shaped bright gold eyes highlighted by pretty cream-colored fur, a perfect little salmon-colored nose and a snowy white chin. 

Here's some of what my King Street Cats friends are saying about me:

  • " She was so frightened and alone. Through the love and kindness of our volunteers she has come a long way to trusting people and knowing the love of a human touch. She is now ready for a quiet forever home where she can continue to blossom and show everyone what a wonderful girl she is."
  • " She loves belly rubs and ear scratches and sitting next to a nice warm lap is one of her favorite things."
  • " She has really done a full turnaround!! So happy to see her blossom!! What a beauty! Hope her family comes soon!"
  • "This beauty has a lovely and unusual coloration, made the more striking by her beautiful eyes. Metro Girl responds less shyly to people with every passing day. Maybe this weekend will be the lucky one for her and for the fortunate person who warms to her charming manners and sweet disposition."
  • "Looks like she went to the makeup artist for her photo shoot - so pretty!"
  • "She has such GORGEOUS markings."
  • "This beautiful girl is so very sweet."

I didn't have the best start in life - imagine me alone, outside in my carrier at a bustling Metro station - but my wonderful foster family has shown me what love is all about, and now I love people right back. I can't wait to devote myself to my very own forever family. Please come to meet me - it's easy: send an email to and ask for me, Metro Girl. Thank you so much.

Gently yours,
Metro Girl

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.
