Herding Cats! This week's RescueDiaries showcases Robin Sarafinchan's East-Toronto colony of 9 cats ... who are all healthy, happy, well-fed and well-cared for! 365 days a year, Robin, together with 3 local neighbours, ensures that these abandoned cats are fed daily, and monitored for their health. 



Robin stresses "cats are domestic animals" -- they are not wild cats, they are domestic cats, but the products of abandonment -- forced to live in the wild (streets of Toronto).  


These cats need your acceptance, and our support.  To find out how to help, contact rescue diaries@gmail.com -- we'll be happy to put you in touch with this incredible community of caregivers.



Check out our latest RescueDiaries "Herding Cats"  here:

Coming next week, we'll get up close and personal with the Metro Toronto Mounted Police Unit horses... 


For Sweety with great love -- a  (Quebec) dairy cow that a LOT of people got behind, and got her to safety. Two years of happiness, health, individual recognition, and ultimately becoming the cow she was always destined to be. We will never forget you girl. Thanks for gracing our lives. m.
