The kittens are a joy to watch as they learn about life and explore their surroundings. They all play the leader at times and have their own distinctive personalities as they try different strategies to pounce on their siblings and play with their toys. Sometimes acting as a group, they solve little situations such as a toy in the water bowl. They love the turbo scratcher ball toy, and tiny kitten-size catnip mousies. At home, they are all great with their eating and box manners. The kittens are very active and must be adopted in pairs or to homes with another young and active pet. They were rescued with their mom, Mittens, as strays in West Virginia.

Peanut is a beautiful petite Calico. She is very talkative, and affectionate. She loves to be in the middle of all that’s going on, sometimes carrying a lattice ball with her. She loves her circle toy from the mayonnaise jar. She is fond of playing actively with her siblings, and curling closely with them for a nap.

Patty has a plain white chin, but is not ordinary in any way! She is a delicate, affectionate kitty who has absolutely beautiful eyes. Her intellect often leads her to explore areas which are new. She has learned how to climb to places to see out the windows. Breezes blowing branches, and the birdies on the feeders outside are fascinating to her. Her sweet smile seems enigmatic at times.

Roger is a petite female with beautiful white toes, and a tiny white racing stripe on her nose. She is delighted to try out new toys, and to play with the red dot, too. Her gentleness and affection are so sweet, as she cuddles up to her foster humans. She loves chasing balls. She is curious about the computer screen. She loves following the mouse on it, and loves the Friskies games on the tablet.

They were born on June 8th, 2016. They've tested negative for FIV and feline leukemia, have been micro chipped, and are current on shots for their age.

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.
