This is from our Sticky Forum. There are lots or resources there; it's worth a look.

http://fluffynet.com/no-kill-shelters! I hope this helps. It's not easy to find a home for an adult cat, unfortunately. People want kittens. I would ask a lot of questions before giving her up.

Thank you for the link. The 4 places that came up wont work out. 3 of them are nyc and the 4th one...we are not to sure about this place. I'll have to email them and ask though.

I just had this thought..(its a long shot though)..my friend who lost her dog a few weeks ago..i could ask her if she would be interested in the mom cat. She used to have a cat. They seem like a quiet family too. I might ask her.

Thanks

Update

My friend emailed me and she said that she can't take ms.brindle because she is still upset about her dog being put down. Shes also still sad about her cat being put down(that was 3 years ago). But her daughter really wants a pet to cuddle with..but the mom wont let her have one right now.

So i dont know what to do now.

Ms.Brindle came over on sunday. Then on monday and today she did not show up. I have the trap set up just incase.. but i close it during the night and/or when i am not home. But other than that..the trap is set up for her.

I just wish the darn mice would stop eatting the dry food!

If I understand correctly, you are leaving out dry food all day/night. Is there a time that you could make be feeding time, and use canned? All my ferals know that there's dry kibble on the patio all day, then I'll be out with cans at the edge of the thicket they live in between 6 and 8 P.M., and usually 4 or 5 of the 9 show up.

Today I set up my trap, and put canned food in it. I went in the house to sort of leave it there, and put away the spoon. When I came back, Cynthia was sitting by the 'back door' of the trap, right next to where the food was... but with the wire barrier between her and the food. Waiting patiently, as if to say "Um...excuse me. I can't get to my food..take it out!" LOL (Scraggly was waiting, but hidden in the bushes...he's not so brave as Cynthia)

I hope you have better luck than I did tonight!

It's better to put food out for ferals in the daytime, since Raccoons and other nocturnal animals will eat it at night.

I so hope Ms.Brindle gets a home!

Dawn,

Every morning i put 2 bowls of dry food out for ms.brindle. Normaly she shows up for breakfast. She would hang out at my house for most of the morning mid afternoon. Then she would disappear for a few hours and then show up again around 3:00 maybe 4:00 and eat some more food.

Then around 6:00 i would feed her dinner(thats when i feed my cats there dinner)...she gets canned food for dinner.

But now i really want to catch her... ive been leaving the dry food inside my house. Theres an empty can inside the trap filled with dry food. So im hoping that ms.brindle will show up hungry and go into the trap.

I put down a newspaper and 2 towels inside the trap to make it more soft for her to walk into it. I have a bigger towel that covers the entire trap. Now i just need her to show up!


The trap is so long and narrow its hard to reach inside and take the food out. So if the can is empty again i just refill by dropping dry cat food into the small holes of the trap.

I would try to disguise the trap and try to make it look like part of the natural landscape. Try covering most of it with a green fabric and putting it in a bushy area. The food should be very strong smelling. Canned cat food, even if it's fish, would be best. Normally, I don't feed fish, but it smells strong, and should attract her. Good luck!
