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!

Good news and bad news

I spoke to the lovely Dr Eaglesome today about the senior cats.  The good news is that Caesar is in great shape for his age, and doesn't really have any health problems.

The bad news is Snowball.  He is very diabetic but that is most likely being caused by a large liver or pancreatic tumour in his abdomen.  She is amazed that he is doing as well as he is, in good spirits and eating well.  It's a large tumour that is pressing his colon against his spine and very sadly he probably only has weeks or months to live.

So now I desperately need someone to take these two in, ideally together.  Caesar could have a few more years, he just needs some TLC and Snowball deserves to spend his final days in a loving home.

There must be somebody out there, I just need to find them, and fast.

Sometimes this is so hard.

Thank you to all who have donated to their vet care.  It's so reassuring knowing I'm not alone in caring about cats and their welfare.

  1. Robin, I really wish I could do something about homing these two. If I weren't dealing with the failing health of my own senior, I would be the first to step up. Unfortunately, the last fostering I attempted, my 20 year old stopped eating - she is still mourning the loss of her companion of 20 years who passed a few months ago. These two certainly deserve love. And diabetes is easy to deal with...I had no trouble doing the blood sugar once I discovered getting blood from the paw is much easier than the ear...happy to offer tips to anyone...really, it's easy...Holly
