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!

Lots to report!

I feel like I'm behind in blogging, but it's been a busy few days.  On Saturday I did an adoptathon at Global Pet Foods on the Danforth, and even though it was the day of the snowstorm, four cats found homes!
Adoptathon at Global, thanks to Donna for all her help
One the cats who was adopted was Jack.  Jack is the cat that Connie found at her feeding station at the end of October, clearly dumped.  What a friendly guy, and it showed, he was very popular, and adopted by a lovely couple who came looking for a kitten but couldn't resist Jack's charms.
Jack, now in a forever home
As I was setting up Friday night, a woman called the store, she had meant to dial TCR but was looking at the homepage about the adoptathon and dialed Global instead, she found a cat and didn't know what to do.  Of course the staff passed the phone to me.  The woman found what she thought was a kitten in the parking garage of Gerrard Square eating garbage in the cold, and kindly bundled it up and took it to the THS but they can't accept strays and would have transferred the cat to Animal Services.  When she explained the situation to me I said bring her here, I'll take her in, it was clearly meant to be.

So little Rosie is with us right now, but she's not a kitten, the vet thinks a year, but she only weighs four pounds, such a sweetheart, but not eating much the last couple of days so we've run some bloodwork to try to figure out what's up.

And then there was the storm, and the shovelling, oh how the ferals and I hate this weather.  We were too busy and cold to take any pictures.  Another bright spot in the weekend though was meeting Krista and Shawn, they came by on Sunday with a huge donation of Friskies that they and their friends got together.  I was so touched, and really appreciate the support, as do the cats.  At least they have full bellies to get them through the winter.

Nikki has taken over fostering the autobody shop kittens, aren't they the cutest things?

  1. Hi Robin,
    who is writing is Valentina and Leonardo, the couple who adopted Jack almost one year ago. I have found your website online and it was pretty awsome seeing jack's pics! He is such a character, he is adorable. People ask "how is Jack?" before asking "how are you guys?", yeah, everyone loves him! We want to thank you for all the work you do and thanks for letting us meet Jack. He was such a blessing in our life.
    A big hug from Jack!
