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. 500+ cats helped in five years +!

And to all a good night

This photo of Tina, Jackson and me was just named one of the the Toronto Star's favourite 2011 photos from their photo blogs.
Right now I am thankful for the mild weather and for the ability to care for these cats on a daily basis. My Christmas cat wishes are vast, from wishing that all cats have homes and that everybody spays and neuters, to hoping that these cats that I care for have the best lives that they can, that I can continue to feed them, provide shelter and vet care when needed. They are a part of my lives. I can't imagine having a day go by when they aren't fed so that is where I will be tomorrow, dishing out Friskies.

I have to admit I'm not feeling very Christmasy tonight. One of my home cats, Allie, a sweet little 14 year old, is very ill, and I may also end up spending part of tomorrow at the vet emergency clinic so tonight I will pray for my Allie to get better.

Happy Holidays to all of you and your feline friends.


  1. Allie will be in my prayers tonight. Wishing you a Merry Christmas and may all the cats some day have a loving home and the stray cat be a thing of the past. Hugs, Deb=^..^=x4

  2. That's my wish for all cats too - a home where they are each loved and cared for. And spayd or neutered!

    Hope Allie recovers from whatever is ailing her.

  3. Thank you for all you do! How is Allie doing??

  4. Thank you for all your kind thoughts about Allie. After 7 hours on Christmas Day we still don't know what is wrong with her, and she continues to refuse to eat plus she had the worst diarrhea I have ever seen. We're just counting the hours until our regular vet reopens tomorrow. She's 14, just a little 6 lb thing, who we adopted 2 years ago when her owner died and there was nowhere for her to go, we love her dearly.
