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. 500+ cats helped in five years +!

I love my drop trap

We've been struggling with a little colony I feed once a week, we got kicked out of the one parking lot where we had been feeding, and started to feed in another lot adjacent, but it's more exposed and the cats have been stressed.  On top of that, a guy living in the building got upset about us feeding so it's become clear it's an untenable situation but what to do.

Tania stepped up to the plate and offered to take them into her basement apartment and see if they could be socialized.  Today, using the drop trap, we managed to get the two siblings, Byron and Bowie.

It was heartbreaking leaving their mother Murphy behind, she is much more skittish and I expect will prove harder to trap but we will go back tomorrow and keep trying.

It's frustrating that so many people have issues with homeless cats and won't allow us to feed, we even canvassed all the nearby houses to no avail.  At least the two boys are safe now.
