Day 1 of trying to trap

Put the trap out nice and early with some sardines mixed with her food, she was curious, but wouldn't go in. Then I put some of her hard food just inside the front of the trap and she did stop and eat some of that. Have to take the trap in after an hour, because of the bees and the flies. She sees them and won't ever go in. Will try it again at her supper time. Keep the prayers coming!

Day 2

She went all the way into the trap, but didn't stand on the trip plate. Was encouraged to see that she went in anyway. Maybe tomorrow will be the day!

She has been into the trap about 5 times, eats the treats leading up to the trip plate, then turns around and comes out. Will keep on trying!!!

Finally!

We finally got her this morning, she's at the Vet's they already called, all tests for FIV, leukemia are negative. She will be home within an hour and a half. Thank you all for your support, and the knowledge that I gained from this site! Without your help, and support I'm not sure how this would have turned out. Now to get her used to inside, but at least she is safe!!!

Yay!! Congrats! Boy, this brings back memories of when I finally trapped Josie. You'll have to keep us posted on how she adjusts to her new, safer, indoor life. Looking forward to updates and pictures!

Very, very emotional for me. I have fed her for a year, through snow, sleet, rain, wind, thunder, finally she is safe.

Forgive me if you've already done this, but have you covered the trip plate? A little straw or a light cloth, etc.
