I've been plagued by a couple of feral cats for a while now, tearing up insulation under the house, driving my house cat crazy, and spreading fleas. Cold water showers and a lot of yelling hasn't discouraged them a bit! Last night I set the Havahart trap. I could tell I hadn't caught a cat from way across the yard this morning, the trap was full of fur, LOL. I hunkered down beside the trap, big momma coon just gave me a look that said, "what do I do now"? My grandson came over, we strapped the trap door open with a bungee cord, coon just stayed put, not enough room to turn around. My grandson finally attracted her attention, she got a look over her shoulder, saw the open door, and squeezed and shimmied her way out.
I hope she learned a lesson about traps, I still have two feral cats to catch, and I need the trap unoccupied to do it!
