I always trap during the day and I always supervise the trap while it is set. I 
am fortunate to be able to do this. I don't leave set traps unattended for the 
reasons mentioned by Marlyn. When we were under the gun to get a family trapped 
before a building was demolished, we actually took shifts watching the set 
traps....

ps my experience with ferals is they have been terrified and squeezed agst the 
back of the trap. The only feisty critters I've encountered are raccoons I've 
trapped (and released). This is another reason I stopped setting traps at night!

GOOD LUCK!!

  It is one thing to trap a cat, transport it in the trap to a safe, sheltered 
place (in my case a closed garage with a towel, blanket etc over the cage to 
help calm the cat) and leaving a trapped cage in the open where it can be 
frightened if not harmed by other critters or by mean spirited people.  I would 
never try to get a feral cat to a vet without some sort of restraint--for my 
protection and the cat's.  







                                                   If you have men who will 
exclude any of God's creatures
                                                   from the shelter of 
compassion and pity, you will have men who 
                                                   will deal likewise with 
their fellow man.

    I've always heard that you shouldn't leave a trapped cat for more than a 
couple hours. I usually withdrew all food by 6pm and then got up around 3 or 
4am to set the traps. (I had to arrive at the spay clinic no later than 6.30am) 
Good point Kelley makes about the clinics---I had a horrible experience where I 
took a feral cat to a clinic in a carrier and the manager turned me 
away---luckily the wonderful clinic vet overheard her yelling at me (yup!, 
yelling!) and stepped in and took care of the cat.

    Everyone I have ever seen has left them in the trap overnight - in fact you 
are required to bring them to the low cost spay neuter clinic in traps, so I 
have no advice on this.  They do get "trap savvy" very easily and you can't 
keep re-trapping them, often you only get one shot at it.

      Is there any 'trick' to transferring from trap to large dog kennel?  If 
for example, I trapped one tonight, I'd have to keep her overnight before I 
could go anywhere and I don't want to leave the cat in the trap all night with 
no food, water or litter box..

      Well, I would still take the kitty to the vet who does the test in the 
trap.  The vet people can deal with that better than you or I.

        Just got some dark tuna and will try that.  Problem is that shelter 
won't take them unless I have FELV test done-I didn't argue thought it makes my 
blood boil.  Sooo, I have to find someone to do the test and that may require 
overnight..

        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!
