Who we are

Cherry Street Cats is me (Robin), my husband Steve, Sandi, Michelle, Verena, Vinyse, Derek, Kent, and Connie, a group of dedicated cat lovers who care for a colony of feral cats in the east end of Toronto. I also have a great rescue team of Lesley, Joanne, and Susan. Together we do our best to make the lives better for feral and homeless cats and kittens. 900+ cats helped in nine years!

Answered prayers

In my last post I told you about the mission cats that we rescued and my own mission to find them homes and raise money for Miracle's surgery. Well, with the help of so many people, I can happily report that all my prayers have been answered. All four kittens went to wonderful homes. This is Francis, who went home with one of my co-workers, Greg.

We had a book sale to raise money for Miracle's surgery, and even with the rain, we made over $200. With other donations, we raised enough money to fix her leg so it won't be infected anymore and she will find it easier to get around. Miracle and Miso will be picked up from the vet today after a successful amputation for Miracle and spaying for Miso. The best news of all is that they are going straight to a home. My crazy cat friend Joanne is taking them. She already has a blind cat so why not a three legged cat. Thank you to everyone who helped, who donated money, who adopted, who cared. God bless you all.

Even with all that going on, our ferals still need food and water every day.

Lily and Biff hang out, just being cats.

I haven't seen this orange guy for a long time, he looks like a real feral, skinny and limping, poor thing.

That's enough adoptions for a while. Extremely satisfying, but also tough emotionally. I got very attached to them all after caring for them for the two weeks they were at my office. I'd be a very bad foster parent!


  1. Hi Robin,
    Just wanted to say how much I've been enjoying reading your blog! I look after ferals too (right now it's just the one in my backyard). If you're planning on having another book/garage sale, I would definitely have stuff to donate!
