I lead a wild life with the wildlife. I trapped a lovely adolescent skunk last night. I talked to him/her and there was no spraying, but then he/she didn't want to leave the trap. Very comfy to remain on the towel in the trap continuing to eat the canned cat food. I left the door off for an easy exit later.

I'm happy to report that when I went back this a.m. the skunk was gone and the trap smelled fine.

Jeremy was living on the streets of Foster City until 1/23. He's looking for a new home and is now off the streets and living at Nine Lives in Redwood City. He's about 4-5 months old and I think he's the brother of Sadie who I trapped in the same location about 2 months ago. To be so little and living on the street scrounging for food. So unfair. He's very sweet and has a lot to offer anyone who will open their home to him.

Hello! Another late night trapping kittens. No success, but I think someone working in the area is feeding them during the week. At least that's my theory since I was successful trapping at this industrial location over the weekend, but have been unsuccessful so far this week.

I trapped a beautiful 3 month old Maine Coon kitten last night in an industrial area. I have no idea where he came from, but am happy to have him off the streets and safely in foster care. He's not feral. Just shy.

Welcome to my blog on how to trap homeless cats so both you and the cats are safe. Trapping is more art than science and just like with people, cats have their own personalities. You need to trap based on this environment and the cats. I have found the Fancy Feast sea food flavors canned cat food or Trader Joe's tuna is effective in luring the cats in to the traps.
