Hi, I am Avery or Avery the Bold (as my foster mom calls me).   I was born in late March, 2017 and am the only boy in the litter.  I am currently living with my mother (Abigail) and my two sisters (Allie and April).  We are the "A" litter and we were taken in and are being raised in a safe and happy home until we are old enough to find our own homes, families and in my case hopefully lots of adventures.  My mother and sisters are calicos but I am a gorgeous tuxedo baby with tons of white.  I have adorable white snowshoes, a full white belly & chest along with a bit of white on my chin and face.  Most tuxies are black with white markings, but if you look at me in the right light you will see I am actually very dark gray and have some tabby stripes.  I am quite a handsome and unique fellow.  The best part about me is my purrsonality though.  I LOVE people and I am very bold and curious.  I take the family lead in all investigations of new toys, people or places.  I march right out with my head and tail held high.  I have never met a new person, animal or experience that I didn't like. 

My sisters and I love playing, we have so many toys, but my very favorite is a little mouse that is black and white just like me.  Befitting my formal wear, I have excellent manners, I always use my litter box and clean up afterwards, I love a good scratching post and nicely introduce myself to new people and animals.  I am ready for adoption before my sisters as I am such a good eater, so I just moved back to KSC to meet my forever family, maybe it will be you?  If you are interested in meeting Avery, please reach out to

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.
