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!

Who needs a cat cafe?!

We were in Montreal recently and visited one of the two cat cafes there, it was fun but I have more cats in my home than the cat cafe did.  I kept thinking why don't I invite people in my home, charge them four bucks for a coffee and have them pat my cats?

Or right now we could do that at Susan's too, luckily her upstairs tenant moved out and instead of renting it out we've turned into quarters for cats!

A week or so ago I was trapping at a little colony and trapped this beautiful girl, I pretty much knew that she wasn't feral and well she wasn't but she did not like recovering in a cage and promptly bit Joanne, who ended up with an infection.  Thankfully Susan agreed to take in Ava, and she's been wonderful there, friendly and sweet.  We are hoping this trend continues so we can find her a great home, she's tiny and only about seven months old.  Maybe she was abandoned as a kitten and had to fend for herself, I wish they carried their stories with them.
Little Ava
Susan also took in some kittens, one of those situations where kittens were being given away no questions asked.  This litter is adorable and will get vetted and go off to new homes.

So if you need a kitten fix better act quickly, I've been going in during the day while Susan is at work but I can't stay long those kittens are too cute and cuddly, it's dangerous.

  1. I am so sorry Joanne got bit. I know what you mean by wishing cats came with their stories.
