Who we are

Cherry Street Cats is me (Robin), my husband Steve, Sandi, Michelle, Verena and Kent, 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 +!

Catching up

Last week I had a stomach flu that laid me flat for a few days and I still feel like I'm catching up.  My life is so busy that to go down for even a day or two really causes me to fall behind.

The cats at the colony have been enjoying the warm dry weather, as have we for feeding.  I have a new feeder finally, very exciting, a lovely woman named Avril.  I love feeding my guys but it's time consuming so three times a week is perfect.  It's the dishes that I hate most of all.  I like them to have their own dishes to eat out of, I feel it prevents fights over food, but it does mean that I end up with quite the stack of dirty ones to wash.

This is Mabel, she appeared one day at our colony, but has moved down the street to another colony, I'm not really sure why.

 And this absolutely adorable kitten is a foster of Jess's, who works at Global Pet Foods in the Beach.

Last week I trapped two more older kittens at Gloria's one male and one female.  The cats are on to me, though, and getting harder to trap.  Luckily I've made really good progress there, only a few adults and older kittens left to do.  I've rescued 20 kittens from that location this year.  My goal is to get everyone TNRed before the winter.

Jenny, who has been fostering some of the kittens, is going to adopt one of the moms who has turned out to be friendly, great news.  Four our of five of Mystery's kittens have already been adopted, I love that the kittens I've been rescuing keep finding homes.  I only hope they are wonderful forever homes, there is only so much I can do and control.
