I have been trying to live trap an unfixed male feral cat. I think he has been getting in fights and one of his eyes looks nasty. I don’t see him everyday and I think someone else is feeding him too.
I cannot catch him in a live trap! I have tried tuna, wet cat food, dry cat food and even chicken and noodles. I would like to get him to the vet for neutering and an exam but nothing I try works. I keep catching a raccoon (I think it is the same one each time) nothing is working! I’ve also tried setting multiple traps-more raccoons!
I’ve called my Vet’s office to see if I could put antibiotics on the food to help this poor cat’s eye heal. They are supposed to get back to me on that as well as some local cat rescue groups who have better luck in trapping.
I see this cat about once or twice a week and have been putting food out (no trap) so he has something to eat and set up a shelter for him during this cold spell. He will eat if it’s not in the trap. (When I set up the trap I do not put extra food out)
Any thoughts or suggestions?
