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!

Cat trapping extravaganza!

With the three little kittens placed it was on to the next project.  I still have to trap their momma, but I've made good progress there, four females fixed in a month.  I released one last night and when I did so the dilute tortie ran up to me and let me pat her.  It broke my heart, I wonder if she is tameable...
Pretty dilute tortie

Momma cat
Lesley and I headed out yesterday morning to trap at three colonies!  First one, an autobody shop, where we caught two females and their five kittens.  The man there who feeds is so sweet, he clearly loves them, has houses he has built for them and has named them all.

Next stop Scarborough, a quiet residential street where a lady in her 90s feeds the cats and the pigeons much to the dismay of her neighbours.  Not so easy there, she had already fed and the cats are very skittish but I did trap one and realized that in future we will have to go when the papers are delivered and before she gets up.

Our last stop was a goldmine, cats being fed by a resident, and I saw a dozen for sure.  Thankfully they didn't run away and boom boom almost instantly we trapped five, we could have kept going but ran out of traps and appointments.  

And we did all of that by 130!  Now that's a productive day....
