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!

Two more kittens off the mean streets

This rescue of the kittens living under the restaurant patio has truly been a team effort.  I went Saturday to try to get them after finding a foster but no luck, so Cary, a fellow trapper I know, kindly agreed to go out on Sunday.  Sunday morning she caught Freddie the orange kitten and the mom and Sunday night got Nutmeg, the tabby.

Now only the little black kitten remains, of course there was no sign of him last night.  Connie has been holding them until Grace the foster can pick them up, and Ian is covering their initial vetting.   These two and hopefully three soon, will now have a future thanks to everyone helping with their rescue.


  1. It does take team work, doesn't it. What do you use for 'bait'? Hope you get the third one today. Good luck.Deb

  2. Kittens are easier to trap than adults but any smelly food works well, sardines, fancy feast or a real winner is KFC still hot, as disgusting as that is LOL

  3. Hope you get the little black one soon. Black cats seem to be more wary in my experience!

    what's happened to the mom? was she feral?

    1. Yes, the mom is feral or semi-feral. I should have mentioned that we were able trap her and have her spayed, or a female cat we think is the mom, there seems to be a couple more cats there, even in Rosedale there are feral cats it seems.
