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. 500+ cats helped in five years +!

I'm sure you remember the story of Tig (now Maximus), he is a portlands cat who clearly was friendly, so I trapped him and he went to Michelle's but escaped through an open door and miraculously made his way back to the colony.

I've been feeding him there for the last few weeks, trying to find someone to foster him and thankfully Annex found two lovely women in an apartment (safer we hope) who wanted this handsome guy.

I went this afternoon and called for him and I could hear him meowing from the bushes.  Out he came and I just picked him up and put him in the carrier, no fuss at all.  Once we arrived, he didn't hide at all, went right to his bowl and had a snack and was totally friendly.  I love this cat!  After I left apparently he made himself at home and had a nap.  

This cat deserves a wonderful home!  Stay safe and inside my friend Maximus Tig, I will miss seeing you on my rounds but I am so happy for you.
Enjoying the attention

Having a nap

I just picked him up!

At his old home, a much more dangerous one


  1. Awww..bless his little heart. And your big one.

  2. What a sweetheart! So glad you found a safe place for him.
