Cat Traps for Catching Feral Cats
The Best Cat Traps
Cat traps for feral cats are essential when trapping a feral cat. There are many different types of cat traps depending on your preference of the level of efficiency and how humanely caught the cat is. The most common types are the live trap and the drop trap for catching feral cats. There is a slight difference in aggression and agility when compared to stray cats, which is why trapping stray cats are much easier. However, this article will solely concentrate on feral cat trapping rather than demonstrating how to trap stray cats.
The feral cat cage is very simple to use. After acquiring the contraption either by making it or preferably buying a cheap one, all you will need to to decide where to place it and a means of attracting the feral cat to enter the cage.
You may be asking why anyone would want to go to the effort of trapping one, but this is one of the most efficient methods of feral cat control. By successfully catching one and spaying it and then returning them, they will not continue to breed.
Remember, trapping a wild beast inside an enclosure is sure to frighten the animal that is caught. A good method is to cover the entire cage with anything that blocks out the sunlight, such as an old blanket or tarpol, over the feral cat cage or trap.
