Hello friends! My name is Dory. I am a stunningly beautiful snowy white girl with a chocolate mask - similar to a Snowshoe breed. I'm a sweethearted people-lover.

When you meet me, you will understand why my new fans here at King Street Cats were amazed to learn that I was found wandering alone outside. That's not the life I was meant for. My mission here is to bond with you deeply and become a precious part of your life.

I'm a young girl of about three (3) years old. I have short fur that's very silky. You'll love petting me as much as I love being petted. I am a people-lover. Not so much a cat-lover, so my dream is to be your "one and only" so we can bond and become inseparable pals.

I'm a happy, chatty girl who loves to strike up a conversation with my new KSC volunteer friends. Imagine yourself coming home at the end of a day and finding me ready to greet you with my vocabulary of chirps, tweets and meows. I'll ask you about your day and tell you about mine.

I look a little bit like the famous Internet sensation "Grumpy Cat" because both she and I have the coloring pattern of a Snowshoe cat and we both have bright blue eyes. Rest assured there is nothing grumpy about me - I have a friendly disposition and a sweet personality that's allowed me to make friends quickly with the nice humans at KSC.

If you would like a beautiful blue-eyed young girl with whom you could bond exclusively and share your days with, please come to meet me! I can't wait to start my life as your grateful, affectionate and loyal companion. We'll have so much to talk about!

To get started, send an email to and ask for me, Dory. I'll be waiting...

Loyally 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.

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.
