Hello Friends,
My name is Mr. T, I am a very handsome (lion-like, I say) gentleman of nine years young (born in 2005) who's coming to you with good manners, a love of play, and lots of snuggling in exchange for your affection. I am currently living in a wonderful foster home but we can easily arrange to meet each other. My dream is to find a forever home because I just love this feeling of being safe and loved.

I love to play. Mice? Yes! Feathers? Yes! Bugs? Yes! Catnip? Oh yes! I love bird-watching. I'll even tell the birds how much I love watching them by meowing at them when they fly by. I love to be brushed by my human - and I'm really in a state of bliss when my human rubs me and talks to me and tells me what I wonderful boy I am. I like to get up early for breakfast - hey, I like to eat, period! The rest of the day - that's for snuggling with my human(s). 

I am OK with other cats and I am OK on my own - either way, I'm easy-going about it. I do not growl. I do not bite. I am proud of my good manners. I am a man's kind of man (or a lion's kind of lion?) - big, handsome and very regal.

I am diabetic, so let me explain what I need and how easy it is to care for me. I need a special diet, as a human with diabetes would. This is not difficult or complex. I receive insulin injections twice a day - but let me be clear about this: the needles are very small, I tolerate this *extremely well,* and this is something that you can easily learn to do. This will not be a major burden.

Are you looking for a well-behaved snuggler? Please come to meet me. To arrange a meeting, please email I look forward to it! Thank you very much.

Regally yours (with snuggles too),
Mr. T

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.

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:

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.
