Hello friends! My name is Viper, and I'm a very good looking little kitten boy coming to you with my adorable brothers - Mr. Ping, Po and Tigress. Our pregnant cat mommy, Samantha, was rescued by a King Street Cats fan and placed with an experienced and loving foster home for the duration of her pregnancy. We were born into that loving home and we've been raised and socialized into wonderful little kittens who are now ready for homes of our own!

We love to play and burn up our kitten energy! It's very important for young kittens like us to have the benefits of same-species companionship - would you consider adopting us in a group or in pairs? 

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. 

We were born in April 2016 so we are approaching our six month birthdays. Luckily for us, our mom Samantha was a wonderful and nurturing mom who gave us lots of milk and plenty of baths. We all love to snuggle with our humans and - if you'll be just a little bit patient - hop up into your laps and soak up your love. We will purr happily to let you know how much we enjoy this togetherness.

My brother Mr. Ping is the romantic kitten - he will snuggle himself into your hair and purr, purr, purrrrrr. Tigress is a very rare find - it's so rare to find a male diluted tortoiseshell cat that our veterinarian calls him a "unicorn"! He got his feminized name because we were sure he must be a girl given his exotic tortie coloring and beautiful markings. Tigress loves to suckle and will suckle on blankets, on your shirt, or on a pillow. Our foster mom refers to this as "giving love kisses." 

We have all been exposed to other cats and children and will do wonderfully in a family home. Our favorite toys include one half of a plastic Easter egg, the plastic rings from milk containers, fuzzy mice and foam balls. 

We're going to make fabulous companions and we'll make you smile each time you come home. Please come to meet us! It's easy to get started: send an email to and ask for me, Viper, or my siblings: Mr. Ping, Tigress, or Po. We can't wait to meet you!

Be sure to visit the bio pages for each of my siblings to see how adorable we all are.

Playfully 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.
