The Trap is Set

Spoke with the nice folks over at the Animal Shelter today on the phone and they informed me I could pick up a cat trap today with a $50 deposit. After stopping for cash on my way home from work, I paid them a visit. I couldn't believe the racket coming from the back room. Sounded like an Alaskan dog sled race going on back there.

Slid my $50 bucks across the counter and in no time at all I was on my way home with a metal cage and high hopes. Arrived home, opened tuna can, put a nice pile on the lid, set the trap, baited it, and am now using all my willpower not to check the trap every 5 minutes.

If/when I catch the cat, I can call to have it picked up. My only fear is that the owners will claim it and then I'll have a trap savvy cat on my hands. I'll cross that bridge when I have to.

I don't know... that trap looks pretty intimidating to me. The cat would have to be an idiot to actually enter it. Please don't kill the kitty! Maybe you can just hobble it or something.

It just started to rain, so I went out to move it under the car port. No cat :(

I have 10 days with the cage. If the tuna doesn't work, I'll try something more tempting. I'll report back in the morning.
