Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet K.D., a 1-year-old cat currently being fostered through Alley Cat Allies of Bethesda, Maryland.

This sweet and curious girl appeared one day in a feral colony in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She was filthy, emaciated and suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection. After noticing that she was well socialized, the people feeding the cats determined she was not actually feral at all and contacted Alley Cat Allies for help.

After a few days of good food, solid sleep, vet trips and lots of TLC, K.D. was feeling much better.

“She is a very active kitty who loves attention and is very chatty,” reads her Petfinder bio. “She has spent her foster time taking care of two foster kittens, and likes the company of people and other cats.”

This pretty tabby likes to be held and cuddled, and greets you as you come through the door with a very excited “Meow!” If you can see this little lady being yours fur-ever, fill out an adoption application.
