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!

A road trip

From where I live going to Jane and Finch counts as a road trip.  Lesley and I don't usually do the west end but we couldn't resist an email about abandoned cats.  Turns out they aren't abandoned or at least not recently but fourteen cats live on a cul de sac by a ravine, I'm sure at one point someone moved from the apartment building next door and left a cat or cats behind next thing you know you have a colony.  We met two of the feeders and oddly got a bit of pushback about helping the cats, I think some may be able to be socialized, they were all swirling around our feet, at the very least they must be fixed or 14 will become 40 very quickly.  We will trap a few next week and see what they are like and go from there.  Just have to avoid rush hour on the 401! 

We've got some gastrointestinal thing going around our cats at home, I hate it when they are sick and won't eat.  More and more medicating!


  1. Do they have a place to keep warm, Robin?

  2. Good luck avoiding rush hour - I find it lasts all day on the 401! But good for you making the treck to Jane Finch to help those cats. Watch your back in that neighbourhood.

  3. Bless you for travelling across the city to care for this clowder. Hope you can trap them & hopefully get them vetted & into homes. Hope the gastro ailments are under control soon.
