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!

This Victoria Day is better than the last

It was the middle of last May that our beloved Buddy burst through a screen in the middle of the night and eluded us for 32 days.  It was 32 days of hell, with little sleep, lots of weight loss, middle of the night sightings and many trapping failures.  We still have PTSD and are paranoid about open doors and windows.  We spent last Victoria Day standing on the street and the laneway terrified Buddy would run with the fireworks that take place in our park every year.  We cursed every bang.

It was a relief tonight to just enjoy them.

Unfortunately poor Joanne isn't having such a good Victoria Day.  We trapped an older kitten last week who clearly wasn't feral and Joanne was working with her, but I'm still not sure what was going on, she bit her this morning and the bite has become infected so off to the hospital she's gone.  She seems like a nice cat, we've moved her to Susan's, and will see how she does.


  1. So sorry to hear Joanne got infected from the bite. Must be painful! After all she does to rescue these kittens, she doesn't deserve this!

  2. ooooowww cute cats its getting sleep :)
