This is also known as Humane Cat Trapping Project Day #8, and our third blog post on this project so far. Our clinic appointment is tomorrow bright and early so thank goodness we really did trap Cat #1 tonight!!!! We trapped him about an hour ago. He is not a very big guy, and all black with a tiny tuft of white fur at his neck. I brought his trap into my home office, my floor protected with a large tray and newsprint in the tray. I used a “trap comb” to partition his trap safely and give him more tuna and water on one end, and a clean towel on the other end, while preventing his escape. He can’t eat any tuna after midnight in preparation for his neuter surgery, but I’m sure he has already finished it. He has hissed a few times but other than that does not seem to need to hide from us. We took the sheet off of one end of the trap and he did not wriggle back under cover.
Tomorrow I will bring him, still in his trap, to the Tree House clinic and we will learn much more about him. We really don’t even know for sure his gender, but we’ll know all sorts of things by this time tomorrow! Stay tuned…..
