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!

Keep on a goin'

Last Thursday night I went out to a colony in Scarborough that's been fed for a few years but none of the cats have been fixed yet.  They all came running to eat and within 15 minutes we had three cats.  Those were the easy ones, there are still five more there to trap, but of the three we trapped two were female so that's a good start.  Marisa and Jessica came out to help.

On Friday I transported the cats to and from the spay neuter clinic and spent a large part of the day on a fake rescue.  Somebody had found a cat a few days before and couldn't find its home.  They thought she was pregnant so I picked her up and took her to the vet.  Well, not pregnant, and actually spayed, then we discovered she had a microchip.  CC had a home, of course back across the city where I had just picked her up.  When I returned her it was to a store, which I wasn't thrilled about, but I can't really be confiscating cats because I feel that the home isn't good enough, although I had a moment where I was really tempted.

CC on her way back home
Liam, who was living in a back yard just two weeks ago, is clearly happy to be inside.  His foster mom  Kathleen is really enjoying having him around.

For the first time in many months we went away overnight and it wasn't until I had 8 - 10 hours in which I wasn't working in some way that I realized how much I had needed even that mini break.


  1. Oh, look at that Liam. He is just captivating. So glad you had a bit of a rest. Try to do that more often. Deb

  2. Liam looks happy to be living the good life indoors again.
