Hi my name is Dopey. But don't let my name fool you, I am a smart sweet girl.  I was rescued, along with my 6 siblings, from a feral colony in Front Royal, VA when I was about 6 weeks old.  Since there were 7 of us we were named after Snow Whites friends the 7 dwarfs. I was raised in a foster home with one of my brothers and 2 sisters.  My other 3 siblings were raised in another wonderful foster home. 

I am a beautiful short hair, black and white tuxedo girl. I am the smallest of the group so sometimes get pushed out of the way when it comes time for attention. So I sit next to my foster mom and gently tap her on her arm or her face to let her know not to forget about petting me too!  I love attention, getting my cheeks scratched and occasional belly rubs. I sometimes like to be held on my back like a baby. I love to play with toys and run around the room. I especially like the toy mice.  I toss them up in the air and try to catch them, sometimes I am successful. I am a bit shy when first meeting new people, as we have not met many, but I warm up quickly.

I would like to go home with my sister, Happy. There are many benefits for both humans and felines when adopting two compatible cats together. This is especially true when adopting two young kittens like us.

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 both love to run around and play and like all types of toys.  I love treats too!  Please send an email to and ask for me, Dopey, and my best buddy, Happy. We cannot wait to meet you!

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.
