Mancat Monday: No Luck Trapping So Grab N’ Go Is Next

mancat monday brian 06212021

Hello gang, I hope y’all are doing okay, we’re doing pretty good here in the South. We had a few medium/heavy rain bands in the area from that pesky tropical depression, so while it didn’t rain super hard it did rain enough to mess with some of the kitten trapping attempts.

Speaking of trapping, it was a no go. We have a new remote control drop trap and the Dad watched all the instructional videos from the company. The remote control part works like a charm but the kittens didn’t cooperate. In the instructional videos they stressed over and over and over to let them get used to eating in the trap first and avoid the temptation of springing the trap until they are comfortable going in there for a few days. We did and they did. But, once we decided it was time to turn the trap on the kittens quit going in. Of course they did. Then the rains came.

So, up next will be a grab n’ go operation. They are still living under our riding mower so the Dad will build an impromptu fort around it, attempt to remove the cover, grab and cage them. We know that works because we’ve done it before. But the Dad is older and not as quick now, we’ll see how it goes. Wish him luck.

That’s it for now, I’ll see y’all on Thankful Thursday. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Good luck with trapping, you and your dad. Kittens might be little, but they’re smart,
aren’t they? As far as being old, you should see how slow the housekeeper is. Slo-mo
is lightning quick compared to her, hehe!

Trapping kittens would be a challenge. At least it keeps your dad busy and out of trouble, right? Hope he can get them.

Brian, you look marvellous! Good luck with the grab and go!
And the getting older thing…I started painting the house…it is going to take me 3 times longer now than it did last time (20 years ago). Parts of me creak and stick and seize up!

Your Dad is a good guy, for sure! He sounds like a patient man, so he will do what needs to be done to get the kitties and take care of them.

Good luck to the Dad, i hope he gets them all.

The other day i was looking for a quote for one of your pictures you posted, and i finally found it.

“The real measure of a day’s heat is the length of a sleeping cat.” Charles J Brady

I am sure your dad will figure it out. Nature will always beat something with remote control.

Brian,

Isn’t there any kind of caging system with trigger release that will shut the door right behind the kitty once it enters the cage? That way there is no waiting around to get used to it, it just captures the little furball once its inside. This sounds like a great idea to me. I hope your dad doesn’t have any trouble gathering them up. The rain always happens at time you don’t want and when you do want it, it doesn’t show up. Good luck on that end!
