Hello friends! My name is Tokyo. I'm a soft and quiet boy who's very grateful to have been welcomed into the King Street Cats family from the shelter where I inexplicably found myself. I'm applying for the job of "best friend and loyal companion" because I heard that you have an opening. I'm available to start immediately and I hope you'll want to interview me after you review my impressive qualifications.

For starters, I have a quiet, calm purrsonality. I want to bring you a sense of peace and relaxation; I won't stress you out. You probably have enough stress in your life, right? I know how to be a well-mannered family boy, having held my previous position for most of my seven (7) year life.

I'm not sure how I came to find myself in a shelter, but my new friends here at KSC recognized in me the qualities of a true companion who's deserving of a loving forever home, and their recommendation means a lot given how much experience they have with cats.

Next, I'd like you to consider my determination. I've been sad lately - wouldn't you be after losing for long-term home for reasons that you can't understand? Nonetheless, I am making progress everyday here at KSC thanks to the attention and support I get from the caring volunteers. They tell me that I deserve my own home and my very own purrson and I believe them! My age should not deter you - it's just a number to me, and it is *not* "old."

Let's talk about my sense of devotion and loyalty. I am an "only cat" kind of guy. I would love to go home as your "one and only" so that you and I can bond to each other without the interference of other cats. My quiet style and mellow personality make me natural companion for the thoughtful, tender-hearted person.

Style: I have it. I have silky soft fur that appears jet black but reveals stripes of dep chocolate when the light shines on me in a certain way. I have almond-shaped eyes that transform from green to gold depending on the lighting conditions. I'm wearing a tiny white bowtie to show you what a gentleman I am!

Here are some references for you from my friends here at KSC:

  • "SOOOO handsome!"
  • "What a doll... and such a sweetie... his little hair is soft as silk!!"

I'd really like to start my new position as quickly as possible - please come to interview me! My friends here at KSC can attest to my qualifications, and they know that I will continue to blossom more each day and much more so once I have the safety and security of a loving forever home.

Please do this: send an email to and ask for me, Tokyo. I'm available immediately and I can't wait to get started on my new job as your grateful friend!

Sincerely yours,

Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.


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.
