Hello friends! My name is Morris. That's right, Morris the cat. You may remember my namesake from years of cat food commercials. That Morris was finicky and famous for his superior attitude. Not this Morris, nope – not me! I'm a mellow sweetheart with an easy-going, affectionate purrsonality that's winning me friends and admiration here at King Street Cats.

My people were unable to keep me and left with a kind veterinarian who introduced me to King Street Cats. As soon as I got to KSC my wonderful reputation began to spread amongst the volunteers: I excel at being a cherished family boy. I love my humans.

I was born in the summer of 2009 so I've celebrated my eighth (8th) birthday. You know what that means: you're guaranteed the calm, relaxed disposition and affection for my people that I've perfected over the years. I love to relax with my humans. I'll follow you around - unobtrusively – to see what you're up to and keep you company. When you want to relax, I'm ready to settle in at your side. When you want some loving, I'm here to soak up all the affection you want to give me. I'm a calm boy who enjoys the more Zen things in life – a nice view, a good nap, quiet companionship.

I do have to state the obvious: I'm pretty handsome! I've got soft, plush honey-colored fur with gorgeous tabby markings. I've got lots of snowy white accessories too: stylish bib, fashionable tuxedo… you'll see. I've got soulful green almond-shaped eyes and a perfect pastel pink nose that I'll nudge you with so that you know it's time to give me some more loving!

I'd be very happy as your "one and only" so we can concentrate on building our bond. I'd also be fine with another mellow, accepting feline friend who won't be threatened by my presence. I can't wait to have my own home and devote myself to my new forever family, either way.

Please come to meet me – you will not regret it! There's nothing like a beautiful, warm, soft, purring friend who's happy to see you. Life is much nicer that way, so let's enjoy it together. It's easy to get started: send an email to and ask for me, Morris. This will be wonderful!

Faithfully 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.
