    Some feral trap probs

    TY Jcatbird!;) Well, he only HAD just ONE testicle after all! In Dec., when he was partially neutered, vet thought it needed part 2 to find the 2nd testicle. But turns out there's none! Strange but so be it. Also, vet gave him the 6 mos. boosters of 2 vaccines. He will come home Friday nite. Oh...

    Some feral trap probs

    Unable to get him tho we can see him as of 8am this morn, in a few apt yards over from us. He's in neighbors' yards & keeps moving back & forth. A few ppl have tried to grab him but he's fast. One neighbor tho is seeming to hoard a few ferals we found out from our apt staff. Long story but she's...

    Some feral trap probs

    :( No sign of him this morn yet! I hope he's ok wherever he is. Asked neighbors yet no one saw him. But one man said he did think yest he thinks, seeing Blackie asleep on my nextdoor patio in shade. Dunno what time tho. We went out & made a trail just now, of KFC leading back to my apt...

    Some feral trap probs

    TY Jcatbird SO VERY MUCH! I NEED it! :) I just hope nothing happened by coincidence since yesterday. Yes, he sees me more often now & MUCH closer as carrying food right into the trap. I awakened him a few times yesterday since he lays on patio near it, & then -- here I come w/ a bowl. I...

    Some feral trap probs

    TY again everyone. I will look all night now that it is dark here & cooler. He isn't around yet, but neighbor did say they saw him last night & possibly today. Also, there's a tuxedo cat around too here in apts, thus they can confuse him (he is all black but way bigger than the tuxie) so unsure...

    Some feral trap probs

    Crazy ? but any asap tranquilizer used on cat to render him to be caught by hand? I know it is nuts but I need him asap. If big cats in the wild can be stopped in their tracks almost asap, can a dose dependent med be given to him in food or such, & he would immediately be unable to run fast/far...

    Some feral trap probs

    TY:) Here's today's update. This early morn about 4am I spotted him w/ my flashlite out back a ways from the trap. It was set all nite w/ kibble. But as soon as I got dressed & out of our 2nd flr apt, I looked again on 1st floor apt's lawn & he was gone. Somehow now, he trusts me less. But I...

    Some feral trap probs

    Ok, real quick, I only have a wk or so left to get him. Yesterday at 3pm, I put roast chick in 3/4 way into the safe trap. He went in & ate it! OMG!!! But... I only put it 'almost' to the spring bar thus he didn't trap himself.:( My fault as had no idea he was this chancey/desensitized. So, I...

    My heart kitty is not well

    Hello. I too am very sad to hear of your poor kitty. But yes, I'd give the meds a few days and give them time. Your little boy, so long as he isn't suffering or in pain, deserves to have a chance to still have quality of life. I am praying for you and him, and please do consider everyone's...

    Kitten got ran over by a jerk lady what to do now?

    Yes, but unfortunately he may be hiding pain or injuries. There's no doubt a vet NEEDS see him asap. Time is of the essence, I'm afraid. If he is in pain it'll take a toll on him & maybe his life. Please still take him to a vet asap, if anyway possible. His eyes in the 1st pic yesterday show...

    Goodbye sweet Eva...

    I am so very sad to hear this about Eva. I am so happy she isn't suffering anymore. I know the decision is so hard but doing the right thing for your baby matters most. Remember, our time with them is to care for THEM not the other way around. It was a privilege to have her I'm sure and you WILL...

    Tomahawk TNR Drop Trap & Transfer Cage?

    I'm laughing at his 'menu'. LOL Nope, I cannot leave him! I've been feeding at least 2x/day for over 3 yrs now -- Allover these apts. Now he lives daily under my balcony on the patio below, that is an empty apt over a yr now. I know Gaba's a risk tho :( you're right. I think the chicken can...

    Kitten got ran over by a jerk lady what to do now?

    Hissing may be sign of pain as in, 'don't touch me'. Please try to get him asap to a vet. Explain his condition & I can't imagine a vet won't help him. It is almost neglect if they refuse as far as I know. Please get him to the vet tho, as no one here can eval him over a pc. TY for saving him &...

    Tomahawk TNR Drop Trap & Transfer Cage?

    Hey TY all very much! Well again this morn I set a bowl of his fav can, Weruva. It was about a ft. inside the regular safe-trap. So, he may go a bit further tomorrow morn. He's about 25% in today (over 1/2 his body, minus the tail which was hanging out) but needs go all way to back to spring...

    Tomahawk TNR Drop Trap & Transfer Cage?

    I never thought of that. It is wet food too but I can try kibble if needed. Also, some chicken bites may work. The only reason I thought the dish slide, was when watching him I saw it move, & thought maybe he'll be distracted & go in deeper to catch it. But the trail of food may be a great idea...

    Tomahawk TNR Drop Trap & Transfer Cage?

    I will try both foods, one at a time. He just goes into it under the open trap door (humane regular trap) but won't go too far in. I put food in a little plastic dish that makes him dig into it, & thus it slides a bit further away from him a little forward & so into it deeper. However, if it...
