Well, i havent posted here for quite a while but have wonderful news.
At one point in time we has as many as 11 or 12 ferals every day but some wandered off and never returned and the rest... i am happy to say have all been trapped and neutered but have remained here with us. We wanted to keep as much of the furmily together as we could so now Mama and all her kids, grandkids and even great grandkids live inside with us! Mission accomplished!em3600

Annette,
We use live traps made for small animals like this one:
http://www.livetrap.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=30179
Most Humane Societies will let you borrow a trap with a small deposit.
How big is the feral you are trying to catch? If he is a kitten, you will need a stick with a string on it. Place the door in the open position and prop it up with the stick. It should be the length of the door to the ground.
Then run the string to where you will be "lying in wait".
Be sure to use smelly food to attract him. Once hes in the trap, pull the string and you got him! Then place a towel or some covering over the trap to calm him down.
Be patient. He may not go right into the trap but he will if hes hungry enough.
Keep us posted on your progress. We look forward to meeting Oskar!!

Can someone please tell me the best trap to use to catch a feral. There is a sweet little orange feral that comes here at night because the other ferals will chase him away in the day if they see him. I want to catch him and get his pockets picked and try to tame him down and make him a house cat. He is so cute. I named him Oskar after Oskar the blind kitty!

Any news at all on Bobtail?

It's spring and already there are kittens in the trailer parks. But good news, not nearly as many as in other years. The TNR program is working very well.

Thanks Wendy! I haven't given up hope, but each day I expect less and less to see him. :'(

Still no Bobtail sightings. I'm working from home today, so I"ll be able to watch for him. em0400

Many purrs for Bobtail, and HISS to the evil creep censored neighbor. He probably wouldn't think it the slightest bit amusing if a predator chased his dog.

I don't know if he's been neutered (actually, I don't for sure if it's a he or she). A neighbor told me that another lady in the neighborhood was doing a TNR for a while, but I don't know if Bobtail was ever part of that. I have one neighbor who also sometimes sets out food, and another neighbor who lets his dog chase cats "to catch". Weather has been bad here up until the last couple of days, but Bobtail had started spending the night on our upper deck when it was raining. And he would eat here even if he ate at the neighbor's, too. I am terribly worried about him.
