I'm thankful that most of my neighbors sleep in, so that I can do this with minimal interference because everyone would want me to take this cat to the pound or dump him someplace out in the woods "since I've already trapped him" .... people don't understand that cats have no chance in this state. They're even harder to place than dogs. At least people can "use" dogs but cats are like squirrels and some people use them for pit bull bait (just like little stray dogs) - why do you think we have hardly any dogs in our local shelter and why you have to have an appointment to come in and see it... think about it...or not!
Anyway, this cat will be spayed/neutered tomorrow morning and then I'll pick him up in the afternoon and release him back here. He's in the house with me now and quiet as a mouse. Guess the pillow case calmed him down. Poor thing! It's so dramatic for him (or her.)
I still have one trap sitting outside, but it's an old rust bucket and the food has already been eaten out of it. When I tested it, it only snapped closed if pressure is applied just so on a specific location of the lever....I will continue to put food in it throughout the day and hopefully I won't trap an opossum
Happy Monday everyone!.
