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!

A chilly Monday

Stubby seems to have been displaced by a racoon and has moved over to Hank's but the other cats don't like him, so he's still not eating as much as I would like but I don't really know what to do, just hope it resolves.

I feed on weekends at a building nearby and they have one of their ferals who has gotten trapped inside so last night I took a trap down and set it up, no luck yet, poor cat must be so scared and hungry.

Today I fed the ferals in my furry hat, they looked pretty chilly too, and the canned food froze within minutes of putting it down, eat fast my friends.

I was happy to rescue a cat who showed up in someone's garage on Christmas Day and didn't leave.  No luck finding his home so far, and I couldn't stand to leave him out in this cold so now Gus is safe and warm.

I also ferried Rosie to the vet for her spay along with Susan's fosters, Asia and Simon, although it sounds like Asia may be a foster failure.  Rosie was going into heat, good thing she got rescued and now is spayed.  She is temporarily with me but she's not really a good fit with the others so I need to move her somewhere soon.

'd better get working on my year in review, it was such a busy year that it seems a daunting task.


  1. Just curious..what do you mean by 'a foster failure'?

  2. A foster failure is when you foster and then decide to keep the cat...

  3. One of the hazards of fostering!!
