Hello friends! My name is Diamond. I'm here with my best friend and bonded brother Dustin. We're completely devoted to each other and to the art of play. We're going to brighten your life with happiness and entertainment!

We were born in October 2015 which makes us each one and a half (1.5) years old in Spring 2017. We  found ourselves with our siblings in a public shelter for unknown reasons when we were just little kittens. King Street Cats came and recognized what potential we all had. They welcomed us into their family and assured us that our futures were very bright.

I am an adorable and colorful girl with soft, silky short fur. My predominant color is a pure snowy white. I've also got patches of golden honey and pale silver with tabby markings in these places.  I have bright green almond-shaped eyes and a pastel pink little nose to complete my lovely face. You will love petting me gently because I am so warm and soft.

My brother Dustin is a handsome young boy with soft, silky short length fur. He's made up of mostly snowy white fur. Add to this some warm honey colored patches with tabby markings, bright golden eyes and a little pink nose. You will love petting him gently too.      He's also got the cutest bobtail - you have to see him wiggle it around when he's getting ready to pounce on a toy. You'll smile for hours

I'm a bit shy by nature but I am blossoming more each day. I loooove other cats and being around them helps me in this regard. My brother is an immense help to me in this regard. It's one of the reasons why I love him so much.

We are outgoing! We love high energy kitty friends!  We need to wrestle and tussle and tumble and race with each other.    There are distinct advantages to both cats and humans when two companionable cats are adopted together – this is particularly true for young kitties like me.

Same-species companionship is important for compatible cats and especially so for kittens. We provide each other the opportunity to burn energy (very important for indoor housecats, as we will be) through play and exercise. We groom each other.    We entertain and provide each other with a sense of security when you cannot be with us. You, in turn, don't have to worry about leaving a cat alone when you have to go out, and you will enjoy twice the happiness and companionship.

If you are a gentle, patient cat lover looking for two new and grateful best friends and companions, please come to meet me! It’s easy to get started: send an email to and ask for me, Diamond, and my brother Dustin. We promise to love you, each other and our lives together wholeheartedly.

Happily yours,
Diamond (with Dustin)

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.
