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!

Tying up loose ends

Well, it feels like I'm shuttering the rescue shop for the winter and just tying up the loose ends so I can focus on taking care of my ferals.  Even though it was cold and damp yesterday I fed 17 mouths, and need to get them through the winter.

Great news about Chloe, who was living in the woodlot.  She has found a forever home, what a turn for the better her life has taken.  
Lovely Cheddar however is still waiting for his forever home.  I don't know why this gorgeous boy hasn't been adopted.  Joanne who didn't want to foster has been so patient and loving with him, I wish the right person would come along for him (and soon).
Michelle is still fostering the two females from the big dumped group and Gatsby and Timbit are up for adoption through Annex Cat Rescue.  Lynn has two kittens ready for adoption from Maria's and of course Connie has her tiny babies, and that's it.

At Maria's, my big TNR project for the year, after 8 months of trapping, we have TNRed 18 adults and rescued 19 kittens.  Only one female remains to trap.  I would really love to get her before the winter but trapping gets more challenging at this time of the year.  It gets dark so early and soon it will just be too cold.

I'm kind of glad to be closing up shop for the season, and I think (or so I say now) that I will have to seriously scale things back rescue wise next year.  I never wanted to deal with tame rescues in the first place, the reason I got involved with feeding ferals is that they don't need homes, I find that very stressful, and emotionally and financially draining so I hope to return to my roots with an occasional detour.


  1. And the Gas Station Kittens ... Did they find homes yet ?


  2. Yay !! Thanks Robin. You guys rock !
