Here is Aaffien setting up the trap and baiting it with always irresistible salmon flavoured Fancy Feast, the McDonalds of cat food.
Immediately one of the black cats began eyeing the trap, weighing his hunger against going into an enclosure. We went to feed cats at another area, knowing he or she wouldn't go in while we were in sight.
We came back after 10 minutes and voila, we caught a cat! The poor cat was agitated but immediately calmed down once we covered the trap with a blanket. Off we went to the vet with Sam or Sammie, depending on whether the cat is male or female. I'm still crossing my fingers that we caught a female. The vet will spay or neuter, vaccinate, apply Revolution and eartip to make sure that we don't catch the same cat again. In two days (if the cat is male), 4 days if it's female, we'll bring them back and release them. In feral cat lingo, it's called TNR (trap, neuter, release).
