Trapping update: Day one

Please note: posting will be erratic this week while we are trapping the neighborhood feral cats. I hope to return to regular posting next week.

It's been a terrible weather day for trapping--lots of snow is falling. I've had to go out three times this afternoon and brush off the traps and replace the wet/buried food.

But, good news! We have already trapped the mama kitty!

She isn't truly feral, which I sort of guessed. We were able to make a "chute" and put her into Tucker's old carrier for the night. She's safe in our porch for now.

I saw kitty prints in the snow, so I hope we'll be able to add to tomorrow's drop off.

YAY! Mama cats are often the hardest to trap; their survival skills are incredibly high!

Ringo and Lucy both love to sneak out on the porch anytime they can (with sneak meaning that Jim opens the door for them).
