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!

Our Labour Day labours

With a spay neuter clinic yesterday, there was no rest on Monday, we had 12 spots to fill and were determined to do so.  Lesley got up early and trapped three older kittens then we met up near Greenwood and trapped the mom and one of the kittens I saw on Saturday.  Sadly they are older than we thought, at least 10 weeks so will need socialization.  Foster homes are in short supply right now!

We had an afternoon nap then went to Neilsen and Ellesmere for six o'clock and trapped 3 of 4 cats in a backyard, and then sped across Scarborough to Victoria Park before sunset to try to get more adults and kittens.  This is a big colony we've been working on for months now, progress has been made but the more you trap the harder it gets.  We did trap one tiny kitten, what a difference, at six weeks it doesn't have time to be feral, and will be accepted at THS with open arms, not the 10 week olds.

All in all, we filled 11 of 12 traps, so can't complain about that!
Six week old
Ten week old
I'm heading back to Greenwood to try to get the other kittens, the mom and kitten that we did catch had fleas so bad they had to vacuum them off!  And in other good news, Liz and Marianne caught Batmom's other kitten, so now it's just Batmom to get.
