Oh no, that's too bad that she got out.  At least she's healed.  Praying that she will return to you soon.  Have you seen her lately? {{{Hugs}}}.

No, I haven't seen her at all. I'm now trying to trap the tom cat who is my other feral, but he hasn't been around since I put out the trap (unset for right now). Thanks for asking about Lucy.

It's so hard.  You know the "right" thing to do, but it frightens the ones you are trying to help.  I hope Lucy and the tom come back, just so you know they are ok.

Leave the trap & shelter as is & try putting the food a little further away from them. They are probably not far away & hopefully will come back soon !

Well, it is spring now and your tom kitty will be looking for love. Fortunately, Lucy won't be his baby mama this year. I hope she does return -- I hope they both come back.

Catmom, any sightings on both Lucy and Tommy?  Can you tell that the food have been touched? Hopefully they will both return soon and doing okay.  Maybe someone close by is also leaving out food for them.

No Lucy at all. Tommy is sleeping in the sun on the porch across the street right now and I hope will soon head over to eat. The trap is set, but he wouldn't go near it last night, so we'll see. I'm not worried about Tommy taking care of himself - he's a smart boy. However, Lucy was so close to being tame that I would just like to know that she's okay. Not giving up hope. Thanks for asking about them. It's so hard to love these feral/semi-feral guys because there's so much you can't control.

No success tonight. I think this is one very street smart cat. I'm going to be feeding him outside of the trap for a while and then gradually move food closer and then into . . . one way or another I'm going to make sure he gets to the vet and is healthy and neutered!

You're very determined - good for you!  They can be so difficult and the trapshy ones moreso...I have heard that warm KFC (no bones) will tempt many cats into a trap...

FWIW, neutering made my feral guy's life SO much easier.  He no longer is driven to roam, he's not fighting anyone, he isn't out "defending his territory", he's just...happy to have a place to call home and regular food and sunshine (when the weather is kind) and the companionship of his spayed girl.

I'll mention to Tommy just how lucky he will be once he enters the trap . . .

Still hoping that Lucy will come back.  I wonder, though, if someone else could have taken her in.  Maybe she would be reported as a "found" cat or posters put up?  Someone would notice the recent spay incision and think she is lost.  Just a thought.

Good luck catching Tommy!

Well at least we know Tommy is doing okay.  Good luck catching him.

Any sightings of Lucy at all?  Hope she will return soon.

KFC does work as long as it's pretty warm when you put it out there. I also have used New Zealand green tripe in a can (for dogs) for traps. Might also work with cats. Really reeks.

Sending many hopes and prayers that Lucy will come back, and that you will be able to catch Tommy. I know how frustrating it can be to be watching out for ferals when they don't show up for awhile. However, sometimes they do range around the neighbrhood and drop back by. Here they seem to prefer twilight hours, which of course makes it harder to see them. I second the idea of using something with a really strong odor for the bait.
