Facts about Jack

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Kitten
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: Jack
  • Hair: Short
Jack is the only boy and the biggest of the three with a sleek jet black coat. Jack is the leader, he’s the first one out and ready to run around and play, starting a thrilling game of tag with his sisters. He is quite the climber and loves to jump down on his sisters while they play to start a new wrestling match. Jack is gentle though and looks out for his smaller sisters. He can be a little clumsy when he’s in playtime mode.

Janet is the other little black kitten, is quite inquisitive and wants to investigate everything going on around her. She enjoys being picked up and getting lots of petting, then she’s right back to racing around after her siblings. She’s a sweet girl who likes people and rolling around for attention.

Chrissy is the black and white girl and the smallest of all the kittens. She is the most vocal when she wants something. She doesn’t let her small size impact her at all and is right there running and wrestling with her siblings. Chrissy is a little tomboy and wants to be right in the middle of all the action. She lets you pick her up and snuggle her, but when she wants to go run and play she’ll definitely let you know it’s kitten play time.

The Three’s Company kittens want you to come and knock on their door, they’ve been waiting for you, to adopt them and give them the loving homes they know they deserve!

The Three’s Company Kittens were born on April 20th, 2016. They tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia and are up to date on shots for their age. Jack has been neutered. Chrissy and Janet have been spayed.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption fairs are held once or twice a month at various PETCO stores in Northern Virginia. The adoption fairs are usually held on Saturday’s from 1:00 to 5:00. Between 30 and 60 cats and kittens are shown for adoption at each fair—with the larger fairs generally occurring April through October.

While they are waiting to find permanent loving homes, our cats temporarily live in foster homes. The foster families bring the cats and kittens to the adoption fairs to be seen by potential adopters. Applicants have the opportunity to handle the cats and in some cases, meet the foster parents who can provide additional insight into a cat’s habits and personality.

Our Adoption Process...

At the adoption fairs, if you meet a kitten or cat that you want to adopt, you will be asked to complete an application and contract and leave a check for the adoption fee ($120 for an adult or $145 for un-neutered kitten of which $50 is a deposit that is refunded after you provide 4Paws proof of sterilization). We ask that you pay the adoption fee up front at the fairs in order to “put a hold” on the cat until your application is processed. If your application is not approved, your check is returned to you.

Neither cats nor kittens are sent to their new homes on the day of the fair. It usually takes 4-5 days to process the application before the cat can go to his or her adoptive home. Pre-approval is an option, though. To accelerate the adoption process, you can fax a completed application and contract to us at 703-560-9795 a few days before the fair. Adoption Applications are available on this website.
