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 +!

Winter warrior

It was a brutally cold weekend, I worried all the time about my ferals surviving but for the most part they seem to be hanging in there, thank god for the sun.  Jet's leg seems much better now and I saw everyone at some point.  Penny has been missing from her car for six days now, I can only hope that she has found a warmer spot.

This is me looking very unglamorous, bundled up ready to feed.  After five winters of doing this I've learned that you need the gear, warm boots, a big coat, mitts and a hat are essential.  I even prepared the canned food at home and put it in containers so I wouldn't have to take my mitts off to open cans. There is tons of frozen food though, and water bowls splitting in the cold.  At least Lily and Floppy are warm inside for now.  Not a bad week to miss out on.

Bundled up!
 In honour of Family Day here are some pictures of my family...
