DARLING SISTER PAIR WILL MAKE BEAUTIFUL ADDITION TO YOUR HOME

Hello friends! I'm Dixie. I'm here with my beloved bonded sister Dora. We were adopted together from King Street Cats as little kittens. King Street Cats has welcomed us back after economic changes in our family made it necessary for us to find a new forever home. Our volunteer friends at KSC are thrilled to see what gorgeous girls we've grown up into and they know that we'll become cherished members of the new purrson (or purrsons) who bring us into their heart and home.

We've just celebrated our birthdays - we turned seven (7) at the start of the New Year. Take it from us and from our many feline-loving friends at King Street Cats - seven is a great age. It's not old, it's not anything except a number. If you're thinking, "Oh, but I wanted a younger cat..." perish the thought! This is a wonderful age at which to bring two well-behaved family girls into your life for many, many years of companionship and affection.

We're also a beautiful color-coordinated set of beauties! We're different versions of the basic "calico" concept - tri-colored ladies with silver, caramel and snowy white fur. I've got medium-length fur which is soft and luxurious. I have a little "mane" to set off my loveliness along with green eyes and a snowy white "tuxedo" that extends to my warm, silky belly. My sister Dora matches my colors in another style: she's got short, plush fur and eyes that change from green to gold depending on the lighting conditions. We're picture-purrfect!

At the moment we're a bit confused about the sudden and complete change in our circumstances. We were happy family girls and now we aren't sure what's happening. Our friends at KSC assure us that our new forever home is just around the corner, but we're still a little bit frightened and unsure. That's not representative of who we really are - please understand that once we're home with our new purrson(s) and realize that we're safe and loved again we'll open up and blossom into the sweethearts that we really are!

Adopting two cats together not only achieves twice as much goodness but brings you double the companionship, enjoyment, interaction and affection. Let's not forget the significant benefit of our same-species bond: when you can't be with us you can relax knowing that we take care of one another until you're back again and we can focus our attention on you!

If you are looking for a double dose of goodness in your life, please come to meet us. We are great family girls and we can't wait to grace our new home with our very special brand of beauty and love. It's easy to get started: please send an email to contact@kingstreetcats.org and ask for us, Dixie (that's me) and Dora (that's my sister). `

Take us home! We can't wait to start the best chapter of our lives with you.

Love,
Dixie (with Dora)

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.
