Cherry St. coordinator Robin S. reflects on the colony's closure
The closure of Cherry St brings mixed emotions
"The trailer is now empty and the yard is now without cats for the first time in over a decade! For me, with this colony it's been a journey of almost 10 years. At one point, there were 25 cats, but with adoptions and TNR we were down to seven. Now, six are safe and will be living inside for the rest of their days. It was bittersweet today catching Pseudo, the last cat. He took all of a minute to saunter into the box trap. I will miss seeing the cats all excited to see us when we pulled up, but I certainly won't miss the bitter winter winds down by the lake, trying to open cans with frozen fingers." –Robin

Adopt me: Yoda

More toes (and everything else) to love

This little brown-and-white tabby is as wise and dignified as his namesake, loving to be brushed and petted. Of course, strong in the force is this one, which shows when he leaps into the air to land on his brothers Chewie and Kylo. Healthy, with excellent litter habits, this little gem just needs his furever home.

Kittens being rescued from under a concrete stairwell

Thanks to the diligent efforts of a concerned citizen and two ACR trappers, six kittens were rescued from a hole beneath a concrete stairwell in Thorncliffe Park. Since being trapped, the scared but safe kittens are being vetted at St. Clair Veterinary (our newest partner) and moving to foster homes over the next few days. Stay tuned for news.

Thank you
On her own initiative, ACR volunteer Lana M. submitted a grant application to The Eric S. Margolis Family Foundation to help ACR pay for extra costs during kitten season. We are so very grateful to her and to the foundation for the $10,000 gift.

Happy Tail: Muffin

A delicious addition to a Crumpet

When the time was right, Teena and her family decided to adopt a new companion for their six-year-old tabico, Crumpet. On the lookout for a tabby kitten, they were early arrivals at the Little Italy adopt-a-thon to meet one of the event's featured cuties—3-month-old Muffin. A Crumpet and a Muffin... who could resist?
