Who We Are

The Mother of Kittens is a kitten foster care and adoption provider, located in Northern Virginia and adopting within the tri-state Virginia-Maryland-DC area.   Mother of Kittens is part of the Animal Welfare League of Arlington’s (AWLA) Kitten College Foster Program. 

Since 2016, our rescue has saved over 100 kittens, to the delight of their new fur-ever homes. Our kittens are in desperate need of the personalized attention and care that Mother of Kittens specializes in. These young kittens receive full medical care, and plenty of love and socialization in a warm dedicated kitten nursery.

For more than 75 years, the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (AWLA) has served the Arlington community with animal sheltering and control services to help pet owners keep their animals healthy, happy, and home. We act in accordance with all AWLA all adoption policies.

    Having all the kittens is great, but a break lets me reconnect with our adults. Heres our Paco (grey & white) and Boo (calico) being double lap cats

    So nice to have lap cats. My cat is picky and will only snuggle when on the bed. No lap action at all

    They are so cute!!!

    Gorgeous ❤️❤️. Luv u ❤️

    The Calico looks like he has a handlebar mustache! 😹

    Aww that face 😻

    I went to visit Freddy Purrcury (fka Statler)s furever meowmy yesterday and she did the kindest thing. 
Before I came over, she emailed in the course of making arrangements that shed read in my posts that I have anxiety and asked if there was anything she could do to help with that and offered support as I was coming to a new place and that prompts anxiety.
It was so sweet of her to not only read the posts, but to notice my mental health issues, and kindly and clearly reach out.
If you have a friend with mental health issues that you know of, try mentioning it and make a point of offering support - it gets the topic out there without them having to bring it up. 
We had a lovely visit - shes fantastic - and wore little Freddy out playing!

    Big Boudica yawn!
She doesnt know it yet, but Boudica has an interview on Thurs afternoon! Its that far away because we thought it best the Father of Kittens do the showing - my anxiety makes me skittish and Boudica tends to the skittish as well. 
To show her best, were going to put our adult cats away along with me and have Rob show her to the potential adopter alone in the living room so that Mama B has the best chance to show her lovely little personality in a quiet situation.  
Mental health affects everything.
