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!

Three weeks makes all the difference...

Just three weeks can make all the difference in the life of a kitten, three weeks ago we rescued these two from Gloria's colony, thankfully neighbours saw them and contacted me.  If we hadn't got them, they would have joined the legions of feral cats out there, cold in the winter, dependent on the kindness of crazy people like myself to provide food.  Instead, thanks to Joanne and Susan for fostering them, in just a short time they will be going to homes, where they will be warm and safe and loved, as all cats should be.  We caught their siblings last week, amazing how much wilder they are after two weeks outside, but they too will get their chance for love.

It was uplifting to receive these pictures tonight, with all that's going on.  Teddy's surgeon called today, he is doing well but has some facial paralysis on his left side.  It's not uncommon and usually resolves but he's not blinking so now has an ulcer on that eye which they have to treat.  Easier said than done, ever tried to get eye drops into a feral cat's eyes?  Fingers crossed that this clears up and Teddy can recover well.  Must get to bed early, so I can get up at 4 to trap my imaginary cat.  I'm starting to forget the feel of his fur....I miss my Bud Bud.

  1. I wonder is he's too smart for the trap? Would it be good to put food out for him outside the trap just to keep him fed and hanging around the area?
