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!

New year, new projects

A new year brings new cat things to deal with.  For the second time this week we saw the new black and white cat at the dumpsters.  We are calling him Chester, he looks a lot like Checkers, but is wary and won't come near.  I'm pretty sure Chester is an unneutered male because for the first time in a long time there was that telltale smell of stinky cat spray.  He will need to be trapped and go from there.

 Today four cats were waiting in a sunny patch.

I am also helping Jennifer with a new project.  Two cats have been living for years in a laundry room in an apartment building and the residents have become increasingly hostile towards them.  We have managed to get the tame one, Buddy, out and into a foster home.  He is a sweetie but was covered with fleas, needs a full mouth extraction and is FIV +.  The other cat, Princess, is totally afraid of people and we weren't able to trap her but are trying again tomorrow.  Then we still have to find someplace for them to live, apparently they are quite bonded.

 This is the spot they have been living in.

 Our own Buddy at home helped us to celebrate New Year's Eve.

  1. Oh, I'm telling you, the plight of cats. Imagine 2 years living in that room. Hope they can be re-homed together.
