ONCE THIS CHARMING TINY PIXIE KNOWS YOU, SHE WANTS TO BE HELD AND CUDDLED

Hello friends! My official name is Queen, but I'm so tiny that my foster family nicknamed me "Pixie." That's the name I hear most often.  I'm here with my young mom Precious, We've been nurtured together in a loving King Street Cats foster home and we are now ready for our forever homes. My foster mom knows how lucky and happy new very own purrson or people will be when they bring me home!

My human friends find it challenging to describe just how totally cute I am! I am black and white with lots of white “highlights” in her fur, and I have a little crooked white mustache that perfectly matches my mom’s! I've got giant bright blue eyes that will melt your heart. I looove to play - in my foster home my brother Jinx and I play non-stop, wrestling with and chasing one another. I am little but feisty! I have been known to gain the upper hand by launching sneak attacks on my brother, even though he is much bigger. I love to explore!

I am still a little shy, but I am very good with people and other cats. Once I know you, I'll be very happy to be held and petted and will fall asleep on your lap. My foster mom says that I am a charming little girl guaranteed to bring happiness to any home.

I'm still a kitten so I would very much like to either go home to another young cat who will accept me as a playmate - or with another deserving kitten or cat here at KSC. My volunteer friends will be happy to introduce you to kitty friends with whom I would pair well. 

There are many benefits for both humans and felines when adopting two compatible cats together. This is especially true when adopting a kitten. Same-species companionship greatly enhances our quality of life. We provide each other with stimulating play. We moderate each other's behavior. We burn off our energy together - this is very important for indoor housecats.

We provide each other with grooming services free of charge. We sleep, cuddle and snuggle together. We comfort each other and keep each other engaged when you are off doing the things that keep you away from us.

In return, you get twice the love, affection and happiness. You have peace of mind knowing that when you have the leave us, we'll be fine together until you return. 

Please come to meet me! My foster family knows that I will add immeasurable happiness to my new home. It's easy to get started: send an email to contact@kingstreetcats.org and ask for me, Queen (a.k.a. "Pixie"). Thank you!

Adorably yours,
Queen (a.k.a. "Pixie")

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:

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.
