I am hoping against hope that mom cat will go in the trap tonight..  its my
last night here and I know my parents can't handle trapping!  How do you set
the trap so that it doesn't spring-just in case I can get somebody to help
in a few days..

I used to leave the trap out for at least a week before setting it. I would
prop the door open and put food in the trap. It's always worked for me.

I'm a big fan of Feliway spray and Cat Nap.  It helps calm the cat and the
Feliway apparently smells like cat.  The Feliway has helped me win over
several cats.  

 

Keep an eye on the trap so the little ones don't stay captured and
unattended.  

 

Right now I am trying to trap some at my Mom's.  I am leaving the trap so it
will not spring so they get used to it.  I know.  It doesn't seem fair to
lull them into a sense of security but they really do need to be spayed.

I would put the smelliest food you can think of (like dark, canned tuna with
oil or salmon) in the trap.  Also, if you catch one or the other, take
him/her to the shelter in the trap.  Don't try to transfer to any other
container.  Try to make sure there is no other food outside anywhere nearby
that they could choose instead of what is in your trap.

 

Good luck......you're doing a wonderful thing for the kitties--they just
don't know it yet!!   +:)

I'm in Tucson visiting my parents and have a dilemma that I thought some
more experienced folks might help me with.  My father's been feeding a
little cat and her kittens since right after we spotted them in October.
Mom is a young tortie who we believe someone dumped in their complex after
she got pregnant.  She had 3 kittens but sadly 2 didn't make it.  So now
there is her and one of her kittens and they are used to being fed everyday.


 

I have finally found a no-kill shelter who can take them but am having real
trouble catching them.  Last night I really messed up.  I had the kitten but
managed to let him slip out when I went to put him in the big dog kennel
that we have set up for feeding station.  He ran off, it was pouring and
though I did see him again, I'm sooo afraid he's really spooked.  Then I
rented a trap but messed up on setting it up and mom cat slipped out.  I
corrected my mistake and know I did it right cause I caught another cat. He
was a wee bit surprised and scooted out as soon as I opened the trap!  LOL

 

Today I set the trap and put some fried chicken and fish.  I was told to
cover the trap so they can't see the food from the back.  I also put a sheet
of newspaper inside at the entrance w. some treats to sort of lure them in.
I saw Mom today but she didn't go to eat.  I'm hoping they come back.

 

Does anyone have advice?  Also, I have one trap and a big dog kennel so if I
trap one, I'm not sure if I should try to get it into the dog kennel-not
sure how to do this.  Any and all advice would be most appreciated!
