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!

First batch of kittens

On Sunday I picked up the first batch of kittens from the Bowmanville house.  I shouldn't call her a hoarder, she doesn't want to keep the cats, so she may not fit the definition of a hoarder, but I don't know what else to call someone who isn't sure how many cats are in her home.

I took these three cuties to THS on Monday, not a moment too soon, after less than 24 hours Steve and I were already getting attached and felt sad taking them away.  Dear God, maybe I'm a hoarder.  I may have multiple cats but they are all well cared for, fixed and get regular vet care, so no I'm not.  On Sunday the first four older kittens will be going to THS and then we will just slowly keep taking them out and getting the four adults she wants to keep fixed.

I was able to rescue this handsome guy last week thanks to Tania offering to foster.  Tanner is about a year old and soo friendly.  How did he get lost?  I've heard of a lot of cats found recently, all around a year old unfixed, I wonder if students got kittens last year and now are moving and dumping them, just a theory, I don't get how all these friendly cats end up on the streets and nobody seems to be looking for them.  He's neutered and ready to go to a home, he's going to fit in anywhere.
Great news, grumpy Gus got adopted last night, let's hope this adoption sticks unlike the last two.

Many thanks to Dorothea for her donation, it will take care of Tanner's vet bill and go towards all the gas money I'll be spending going back and forth to Bowmanville.

I met with a specialist yesterday about Teddy's ears, but that needs a separate post, there is a lot to digest.  Oh, news on Audrey, one of our relocated cats that I haven't seen for 2 months.  One of the guys down there found her living under his building, I guess that's where she's been all winter, and only came to eat after we left.  Maybe Bonnie was in there too.  Unfortunately they left behind the biggest pile of cat poo I've ever seen, good thing he's an animal lover.
