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!

Tabby #3 and the deep freeze

This is Katie, the three month old that Connie has been fostering.  Connie was crying when I picked Katie up this morning.  She's off to be spayed and then she will be up for adoption.  I guarantee she won't last the weekend.

I've been so worried about the ferals in this weather but when I fed today most of the cats were there.  Best of all, Minky has reappeared and Socks was on the ground, back to their usual routine.  And I saw Chester, first time since he was released a week ago.  The floppy eared black cat was also at the dumpster, I only see him once in a blue moon.  Somehow they are surviving.  We have lots of shelters and there are other spots for them to huddle in.  If only I could figure out how to keep the canned food and water from freezing.  Luckily most of the cats come as soon as we arrive.  We all use a clicker to announce our presence, it really helps, especially in this weather.

  1. What a darling cat. I'm still putting food down every night for cats that I haven't seen since December. The food disappears every night. I hope they are ok but I have no way of knowing. Deb
