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!

Where is Jackson?

Jackson, one of our favourite cats, has not shown up for the last three days and I'm worried.
Jackson is the founding member of the colony, the one Sandi first saw. He is a sweetie, you can even pat him. For the last three days no sign of him and he's usually right there, Jackson loves to eat. This morning I wandered around the yard calling his name, looking in boats in case he had gotten trapped in one but I couldn't find him. It's dangerous down there, trucks, raccoons, who knows what else so my fingers and toes are crossed and I'm just praying that he's OK and shows up again. I hate to think of it without him. That's the problem with doing this, eventually they will all die or disappear. Too many cats to love.

  1. I totally feel your pain. I fell madly in love with a male cat in a colony I was feeding. I named him Bella. He was there, first in line for his feeding ever night.

    Until one night last fall. He didn't show up, and as usual I was worried. By day three I was about to panic - three days is the longest he had ever been gone. But that time, he didn't come back and I've not seen him since.

    I still miss him and wonder what happened to him. He was the cat that started me feeding ferals, something I still do every night. I miss him terribly and wish he were still around. But you're right, that's what happens to them eventually. One day they just don't show up and that's it. :(

    I don't trap the ones in my colony and I absolutely should, but I am terrible at it. All my previous attempts have failed miserably.
