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!

Buster - and Blinky the kitty contortionist

Last week we trapped the mom at the construction site, Friday night we got the dad and Saturday night the kitten.  One two three all done.  The adult male and female seem tame so Reed, the feeder, has agreed to foster mom and her kitten, and I talked Andrea into taking the dad, thankfully she has a soft spot for the rough guys, and rough looking he certainly is.  Who knows how long he has been on the streets but clearly wasn't born there.  Maybe he was adopted as a kitten and then abandoned when it was deemed he wasn't cute enough.

No chance of that with our Blinky!  Even though he's occasionally an inappropriate peer, he's ours for life.  Here he is showing off his yoga moves.

Clara is doing well after spending three days at the vet on fluids.  She is at Raven's now, getting fattened up.  She should be able to go back out in a week but the question is whether to release her and risk her disappearance or take her to a sanctuary.  I don't want her to have gone through all this to go back and starve to death.

  1. Poor Buster - so thin. Glad he's now getting regular meals.
    Your silly yoga cat is quite a character. Is he really comfortable like that?!!
