Hi! My name is Jessie. I'm updating my profile with some very good news. I’m still a 12 year old, big boned, soft and silver tabby girl looking to share my love. I'm so happy to tell you that I have really come out of my shell now that I've been with my foster mom for a couple of months!
Although I love living with other cats, I am in love with the extra attention I've been getting as a single cat for the past few months. I feel so special, and I love showing my thanks. Once I settle in, I do this by sitting next to you and giving you loving head butts, or by rolling over so that you can rub my soft, silky belly. I am not a lap cat, but I enjoy sleeping with my foster mom and head butting her to let her know I'm happy to be there. Check out that "action shot" of me blissfully leaning into my foster mom's hand for some love. I had to close my eyes to savor the moment!
I am a low energy (but still active!) house trained indoor kitty with a soft little voice. I get along with adults and children, although I am shy at first and will appreciate your help in introducing me to new friends. I'm a soft silver color with tabby markings. I have round eyes that are a soft green and a perfectly shaped little cinnamon-colored nose.
I have many years of love to give. I am looking for a special, loving human who is looking for a gentle, sweet and loving companion. I would make such a good friend for an older person. Please consider giving me a forever home - and I will show you my gratitude every single day. Thank you so much.

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.
Adoptions at 25 Dove St (the King Street Cat home) are every Saturday and Sunday from 1:30 to 4:30 pm
Additional Adoption Events:
- Petco at Beacon Hill on the first Saturday of the month (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.)
- Profeed at Bradlee Shopping Center on Saturdays and Sundays (1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.)
- Petsmart at Falls Church on 3rd/4th Sunday of the month (1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.)
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.
