Cover with a towel/small blanket

Twist tie the doors when cat is trapped

Tag and label your traps

Tips for Hard to Catch Cats

Try the drop trap

Consider a different sized trap

Laser pointers are useful for kittens

Try enticing treats like catnip or baby food

Make the trap more secluded/hidden

Withhold food for 48 hours

Rig the door open and feed out of the trap OR

Feed underneath the drop trap beforehand

Have the regular feeder set the trap

Identify multiple feeders in the area

The key is helping kitty overcome his/her trust issues and taking extra steps toward that goal.

Post Surgery

Ensure that each cat comes back in the same trap

Allow cats to recover for at least 24 hours

Complicated spays may need 48 hours

Nursing females should be released sooner

Limited food the first night – always give water

Check spay scars prior to release

Release at the same area where trapped

Clean up and re-stock for next time
