This week at King Street Cats…as you know we have a soft spot for senior kitties and take them whenever we can. However, they often don’t do well in the hustle and bustle of the cat room and so we need to place them in long-term foster homes. What does that mean? You provide the loving home and KSC pays for vetting and medication expenses.

Let us introduce you to two of the seniors currently in desperate need of a long-term foster. We’re looking for a miracle here as neither is going to be easy to place. But we couldn’t say “no” to them knowing that they would be euthanized elsewhere. Can you help?

Ashley Gypsy
Beautiful Ashley is around 14-years-old and came to us when her person went into assisted living. She is on prednisolone twice a day, which she takes in food. She is a quiet, very shy girl who needs a calm home where she is the only pet. Gypsy is around 13-years-old and on thyroid meds, which she takes in her food. She’s at the beginning stages of kidney disease so eats KD food mixed with Fancy Feast. Gypsy also needs a quiet home with no other animals. While she likes to sit next to you, she will not tolerate being picked up or petted.

If you or someone you know is willing to open up their heart and home to the special seniors please email us at:

*Please note we need long-term fosters in the Alexandria area as we can only use our vets at Fort Hunt or Hayfield Animal Hospitals for our long-term foster expenses.
