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!

Terrific or terrible tabbies? - only time will tell

I was contacted about a large group of cats in Scarborough, same old story, they started feeding two, then they had kittens and now last year's kittens will be having kittens.  The townhouse management is complaining so the residents have reached out for help.  The cats will actually come into the feeder's house so I had high hopes but when I went to visit them I couldn't touch them or get close, it's one of those situations where the cats are friendly with their caretakers but probably not adoptable by anyone else.  Or maybe in an ideal world where we had lots of time and socialization foster homes and really patient adopters who don't mind shy cats but those are far and far between.

Still I decided to take the two youngest who are about seven months old and see if they are tameable. It's too soon to tell about them, but we have some serious TNR work to do and fast there are multiple pregnant cats there and one already had kittens a week ago.  If we can get everyone spayed and neutered hopefully that should appease the complainers.
Can you say unneutered male?

Let's hope these tabbies can be tamed!
