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!

My kind of Christmas

Scooter and Ernie got up early and snuck downstairs to see if Santa had arrived yet.

 No Santa, and they quickly tired of waiting for breakfast.  Those humans sleep way too late.
After we took care of the colony at home, we headed out on our Christmas rounds.  We had two additional colonies to add to our route, so it was about three hours before we returned home.  It was a snowy day so not as many cats as usual, but I think we fed about 30 ferals today.  Christmas is just another cold day for them, but I love feeding them on Christmas Day, feels like the right thing to be doing.  Merry Christmas to all!


  1. Yes, I think they should have a Christmas meal, too. They must be finding all this icy weather very difficult. We put food down last night after everyone left our home for the ferals in our area. My heart goes out to them.

  2. Love your 'colony at home' photos, very cute.

    The outdoor colony don't look quite so relaxed; the ice obviously made it difficult to get around. It was so bitterly cold on Christmas Day too - they must have really appreciated the food/fuel you brought them.

    Merry Christmas and a Happier New Year to all the cats who need care.
