We rescued four stray kittens from our neighbor's garden last fall. We caught their mother. We took her to the vet to be spayed so she won't have more kittens. This fall, a young cat is coming to our garden. We're trying to catch it to take it to the vet. There are many stray cats in our area. Feeding a stray cat without having it spayed or neutered is prohibited. There is a volunteer group that is trying to catch all the cats. They want to spay and neuter them and then release them. They lent us this cage.
The young cat is very clever. We've been trying to catch it for more than a week. The vet suggested tying a fish head in the cage. I tried that, but I caught the big Papa cat instead. We took him to the vet. I had to buy another fish head but couldn't find one. I bought this piece of fish instead. I hope we catch the young cat!
P.S. I caught another cat instead! A big tomcat. Then after a big effort I caught the young cat. Yikes, this is expensive!
