Hello friends! My name is Precious. The notations you see after my full name above - "Precious 2016 II" indicate that I am the second kitty of 2016 named Precious to be welcomed into the King Street Cats family. You can just call me Precious - my name describes me very well!

I am a two (2) year old girl who's been cared for lovingly in a wonderful foster home since April. I have soft, silky medium-length fur (psssst... medium-length fur is just gorgeous!) in jet black with lovely white markings. I am wearing a snowy white tuxedo and apron which match my little white booties. I have the sweetest little crooked "mustache" (it matches my white whiskers) and a strikingly fluffy tail. Your heart will melt when you look into my big, round, bright eyes. 

I have been an attentive, sweet and protective mother to my daughter Queen (we call her "Pixie" because she's a tiny little bug). I also raised another kitten, a boy named Jinx, from four weeks of age. I have a nurturing personality. I'll tell you about my baby girl Queen ("Pixie") in a minute because she and I are extremely close and we want to be adopted together as a bonded pair. Our foster mom knows this is the way will be blossom most fully. We'll bring twice the love and companionship to the lucky purrson or family who adopts us!

When I'm not busy looking after my babies, I love to bask in the sun, watch the world go by out the window, and groom myself to maintain my very elegant appearance at all times. I'll be shy when I first meet you, but if you'll sit on the floor and show me that you are a soft and gentle soul, I will quickly become very playful and silly, running after strings and fluffy toys. We'll have a good time together! I get along very well with other cats too

My daughter Queen is a sweet little sprite who's just four months old as of this posting in August 2016. She's so tiny that our foster family calls her "Pixie." She is very attached to me and to her best buddy Jinx, the little boy I raised from the time he was four weeks old. She's color-coordinated with me and has the same crooked little mustache! She loves to explore and she loooooves to play with Jinx. They can wrestle and chase each other all day long. She will also be shy at first, but once she knows you, she'll happily let you hold and snuggle her, and she'll fall asleep in your lap. She is tiny, feisty, charming and absolutely adorable!

There are many established benefits to adopting compatible cats together - especially in the case of a kitten like "Pixie" and in the case of two cats who have bonded as tightly as she and I have. We already love each other, and the same-species companionship will enhance our quality of life tremendously. We will provide each other with exercise, natural and instinctive play, grooming services, cuddles, snuggles, comfort and behavior correction. You can go about your human business with the confidence that we will take care of each other until you return.

Please come to meet me and my "Mini Me," my baby girl Queen (or "Pixie," as I think of her)! Our foster mom knows that we will be cherished additions to your household. To meet us, please send an email to Thank you so much!

Gratefully yours,
Precious (with my baby girl Queen)

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.
