|Feral cat Lucy in Woods|
The cat was released where I trapped her, inside the shelter. I assumed Lucy would bolt out the door and run into the woods but Lucy was not ready to go outside and she hid in the back of the shelter.
During her stay in the shelter I treated her with a homeopathic healing. My friend in Atlanta who is a gifted healer helped me with the treatments. I also fed her a raw diet of lean meat, vegetables, sweet potatoes, and liquid vitamins. Lucy grew healthy and strong and within two weeks Lucy the feral cat was ready to return to the woods.

Lucy looks great, her fur has grown in and her coat is healthy and shinny. She limps on the front paw that was injured and I suppose she always will. She visited with me for an hour.

Her other kittens Boris and Natasha were still under medical care, but would be coming home soon. They would be socialized too and would be adopted.
Lucy the feral cat need not worry because her kittens would have a better life than she. Lucy was a good listener as she did not turn her head nor did she walk away.
Lucy was reunited with the feral cats at the Oak Ridge colony on August 26th, 2010. She will live the rest of her life in a wooded tract of land that is privately owned. My husband and I will watch over her with the help of the civic minded volunteers..
