Hello friends! My name is Erma. I'm an amazingly cute little girl kitten who was rescued from a hoarding situaiton. I'm dreaming of a forever home with a kind purrson of my own who will help me continue to blossom and grow. 

I was born in the middle of Summer 2015, so I've just celebrated my first birthday. One year of age is the perfect time to adopt a feline friend.   I was rescued from a hoarding situation - not pleasant by any means. I never knew the luxury of feeling safe, secured and loved. I attached myself to another young girl kitty and we provided each other with comfort, security, companionship and play. I would love to go home to another furry friend who will be agreeable to my presence in your home.

I'm still a bit too shy for rowdy children right now, so I'd like a home that's a bit quieter and where I won't feel threatened by anyone who feels compelled to approach me suddenly or force themselves on me. 

I am as playful as can be - I promise you hours of entertainment. I love toys, and if I can't find them I'll make playthings out of whatever happens to be available.

I've come to love my human friends very much and look forward to soaking up your gentle affection with all four paws planted on the ground as I am not yet enamored of being picked up and am not yet a lap cat. I will happily return your attention and give you contented purrs - please understand that my reluctance to leave the ground or climb on you is no reflection on you whatsoever.

I am adorable! I am a silver tabby with hints of cream and white. I have lovely tabby stripes and beautiful almond-shaped gold eyes. I have a perfect pink little nose, a lovely snowy white vest and a warm silky tummy. 

Please come to meet me! I might feel a little shy if it's a busy adoption day here at KSC, but that's no reflection of my feelings towards you. If you fall in love with me, I'm going to fall in love with you too! To get started, please send an email to and ask for me, Erma. A wonderful kitten girl is waiting to warm your heart.

Adorably 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.

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:
- Petco at Beacon Hill on the first Saturday of the month (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.)

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.
