Hello friends! My name is Leslie, and I am the very lovely and luxuriously long-haired young mom of the "Parks & Recreation" litter of kittens. I've been living and thriving in a loving King Street Cats foster home with my kittens Andy, Annie and April. I've charmed my foster family with my open and affectionate purrsonality and they know what a wonderful, faithful best friend I will be to the lucky humans who take me home.

I just celebrated my first (1st) birthday in August 2016 so I am a young girl with my whole future ahead of me. I am a gorgeous jet black girl with soft, silky long fur - there is nothing as beautiful as a long-haired cat. My bigh bright green eyes will melt your heart. You and I can discuss my brushing preferences and beauty requirements when we meet. I keep myself looking lovely at all times and I'll welcome your gentle assistance in helping me to maintain my high grooming standards. But about how fabulous I look!

I am a friendly, people-loving girl. In addition to nurturing my kittens, the most rewarding way for me to spend my time is with my humans. I am extremely affectionate! I love getting my head petted, my chin scratched and I will roll over on my back while you scratch my chin to give you full access! Rolling over also indicates how much I love and trust you. 

I love to be picked up and carried while you snuggle me close to you. I always want to be close to my humans regardless of what you may be doing. If carrying me around and snuggling me is the best way to stay close to you, then I am all for it!

I get along wonderfully with other cats. Even when they make mean faces and hiss at me, I don't take any offense. I never hiss back. I simply want to make friends with them. I do very well with children as long as they are willing to play my favorite string games with me. Speaking of games, I adore chasing silly strings and that sneaky red laser dot. Why do they think they can get away from me? Just watch and I'll catch them for you!

In addition to teaching my kittens (you can see photos of Andy and Annie below) about the world and the wonders of trusting humans and soaking up their affection, I enjoy sitting on top of my cat condo to oversee the household activities and spending time with my foster family - because at heart I am a people's cat... I love my humans and am happiest when I can be with them.

My wonderful foster mom says she is at a loss for words as to how to convey just how wonderful I am. She wants to make sure you know that I am friendly, playful and very affectionate - and that I will make you a loyal companion and loving best friend.

Please come to meet me! Let's fall in love and start a new chapter together. I promise to make you smile and I know you'll make me purr. That's just how much I'm going to enjoy bonding with you. It's easy to get started: send an email to and ask for me, Leslie. I can't wait to be picked up and carried off to my forever home!

Affectionately 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:

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.
