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!

Brand new babies

The tragic death of Bobsey just serves as a reminder for me of how important it is to save every cat that we can from a life on the street.  I got an email from a colony feeder that I know, she received a call from a lovely woman who found a very pregnant stray.  She couldn't bring her into her home, but set her up in her shed, where she promptly had six kittens!  It just worked out that Susan had a room available so now Joy and her babies are safe inside.  Four black kittens and two grey ones, forgive the fussy picture, don't worry there will be more adorable kitten pics to come.
Susan had been fostering the seven cats that were put outside when the woman I had been helping the last few years was evicted in June.  I haven't heard from her for over a month so we decided it was time they found homes, as much as Susan loved them she couldn't suddenly adopt seven more.  So when THS had space on Thursday we tearfully packed them up, with the exception of one.  The great news is they have all been adopted!  At least now they will have stable homes, with people who can afford to feed them and vet them.

  1. So very glad they are mostly adopted!!!! I am with you - get them off the street. It is so hard for both domestic and feral cats out there on their own.
