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. 500+ cats helped in five years +!

Why the long wait?

Why is Flossy still waiting for a forever home after almost a year and a half in a foster home?  Flossy was one of my rescues.  She was living in a colony at Dufferin and Eglinton.  We caught her with the intention of TNRing her, turned out she was friendly so Lisa Marie kindly agreed to take her in and has done an amazing job with her, Flossy has become a real love bug.  It seems the only reason she hasn't been adopted is that she has food allergies and needs a special diet.  It's no more expensive than good quality food.  Who could resist this cat?  Won't somebody give Flossy a home of her own?

On other fronts, all hell has broken loose.  Dumped kittens in Scarborough, a hoarder with unfixed cats, a new colony with pregnant cats, plus I have a whole colony to trap this week.

Not to mention that my job is a bit tense right now, wish I could do the cat thing full time.

Deep breaths needed this week!


  1. It's beyond me why that gorgeous cat has not been adopted. Isn't it awful how things change on a dime in the cat-rescue world. It sounds like you didn't have much of a break. Hoarders are everywhere. That's how we ended up with our Mr. Ed and later with Annie and her three babies. Hoarders in the Smiths Falls area were finally discovered. I hope things go well for you in the next little while. It sounds quite over-whelming. God bless. Deb

  2. I wish I could do that cat thing full time, too.

  3. What are her food allergies? And what food is she on?

    1. Her allergies haven't been determined but they kept under control with her food, it's Z/D, you can get it from a vet.
