In early April, Hallie Hill received a touching letter from Judi Brantley of Wadmalaw Island, SC. Over the past six years Judi has been involved in the spaying/neutering and feeding of a feral/stray cat colony in her area. Judi informed us that the elderly woman with whom these cats resided had passed away and her property was sold. Judi had grown to love these cats and was worried about their future.
Although our cat enclosures were full, we could not deny Judi’s request for assistance. We began construction on a holding pen here at Hallie Hill (where we feed our own small population of feral cats). Judi trapped the Wadmalaw cats, and transported them to Hallie Hill to be housed in the enclosure for a few months (to get familiar with the area) before being released. Of course, any cats that had not been spayed/neutered had a quick detour to the Charleston Animal Society for surgery and a medical check-up before joining the Hallie Hill family.
Judi Brantley had the heart to adopt seven of these cats into her own home. She went above and beyond to make sure these animals did not suffer. “Hats off” to Judi and all the other animal lovers out there who make a difference in animals’ lives every day.
