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!

Thanksgiving thoughts and a 3 year anniversary

It's been three years since I've started this blog.  A lot has gone on at the colony since then, we've lost cats, added cats, done our best to keep these cats alive and cared for.  I've become more involved in rescue, this year perhaps a little too involved.  My stats from March until now are 46 adults spayed and neutered (24 females), some feral, some tame and 41 kittens rescued.  No wonder I am feeling burned out.  I am trying to wind things down so I can just concentrate on the colony for the winter.

On Friday we got together and did a clean up and restuffed all the shelters with fresh straw.  Of course, the landscape there constantly changes so now we have to move the poor dumpster cats' feeding area.

Michelle, Anne, Tory and Sandi clean up around Harry's

Lexi/Suki, one of the recently rescued adults, and very friendly, got adopted yesterday so that's great news.

I am thankful for many things cat related and otherwise.  I am fortunate to have such great supporters, I could not care for the ferals or do all this rescue on my own.  I am grateful that with everyone's assistance I have been able to help so many cats.  And I'm happy that it's a long weekend and I got to sleep in today LOL.  Time to share some turkey with my bunch.
