Need help trapping feral cat please
Have not been here for a while. I have 8 indoor cats (5 former ferals, 2 who were born to feral mums in my home and one abandonded stray) and a few ferals who eat on the front porches and spend some time in the houses on said porches. There are also the regulars who stop by but don't stick around much.
One of my ferals, who has been coming since Sept 2013, stopped coming around the middle of April and I looked everywhere but no sign. Alady around the corner whose missing cat I've been keeping an eye out for, got in touch with me to warn me that her neighbour has been bragging and laughing about trapping this big orange cat, taking him out to a farm, letting out and killing him.She wanted to tell me other things but I couldn't listen. I realized this was my Baxter. The police and Humane Society have been notified and the police have been to see him but of course he denied everything. The Humane Society were supposed to visit him yesterday. I contacted a group who are actively TNR'ing in this town and the girl said to get my ferals into an enclosure or take them in. At this time, I only have a couple staying here and under my neighbour's porch. One needed spaying so I trapped both of them on Tuesday night and took Ariel into be spayed yesterday bringing her home last night and releasing her into the cat room upstairs. Sookie, the other little girl, has been loose in the room since she was trapped.
She is just lying on the bed, not hiding from me and has not eaten at all. She barely moves. She acknowledges me when I enter the room and makes no move to hide. It's like she has given up. I'm afraid I've done the wrong thing and she's going to starve herself. I don't know what to do.
