Hello friends! My name is Annabelle. I was found wandering around in the great outdoors all by myself with no identification and no idea how I found myself in such dire circumstances. Luckily, a kind samaritan found me and introduced me to King Street Cats. Now that I'm part of the KSC family, I'm showing my new volunteer friends my soft side and waiting for the one thing every tortie girl dreams of - a human to call her very own.

I'm two (2) years old, which is very nice age at which to adopt a new best friend. I'm young and playful, yet I'm over the "kitten chaos" phase in life. I am a very beautiful and exotic looking chocolate tortoiseshell girl - a chocolate tortie is one with no white markings in her fur. My fur is short and silky and consists solely of very deep dark chocolate (which may look like black depending on the light) and caramel tones. I have big bright green eyes for you to gaze into.

My purrsonality is that of a sweetheart. I like my humans and I know that I want to have one of my own. I'll be a loyal friend, always interested in your activity, yet never in your face. I possess a bit of "tortitude," which means that I can be an independent girl who at times likes her peace and quiet, just as I know you do too. 

I envision myself being your "one and only" best friend so that we can bond together. I may be open to other feline friends in the future; I'm not quite sure about that yet. I'm still making up my mind here in the KSC cat room. You can ask any of my volunteer friends for my latest opinion on the topic.

I like watching my humans, getting gentle head rubs and chin scratches, smelling new smells, surveying the landscape from a nice kitty perch, and keeping myself well groomed and lovely. I like toys and games, but I promise not to exhaust you. I'm not a high maintenance kind of girl as long as I know where you are and where to find you when it's time for some togetherness.

If you are looking for a best friend in the form of a legendarily gorgeous young tortie girl, please come to meet me! I know what it's like to be lost and alone and I never want to go back there again. Thanks to KSC I won't ever have to - and (perhaps?) thanks to you I will know the love and comfort of my own forever home.

It's easy to get started: send an email to and ask for me, Annabelle. I'll be waiting to meet you! 

Beautifully 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.

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.
