Out came the trap and the cans of stinky goodness. I set up the trap with Mr Cat watching my every move. When I was done, I went back into the house and waited. Mr Cat was STARVING coz it took less than 5 minutes before he was caught! Hubby came to help me put the cat into the carrier and then I set the trap again (just for fun) and 10 minutes later, "clink" went the trap. ANOTHER CAT! I couldn't believe my eyes so I set up the trap again. 30 minutes later, "clink, MEW" and I looked at Hubby in disbelief! Really? So now we had 3 strange cats in the house (but NO Mr Black - though he did turn up to sniff at the tuna but ran off when he recognised the trap. We'll have to work out a plan to catch him with the net)...
|Hey! Let me out!|
|Here is another view of the toe-less paw compared to his normal paw (it looks like he's just curled his toes down, doesn't it?)|
|Hungry hungry Mr Stumps! He had a good appetite but is still very woozy from the sedation so we will keep him for the night before releasing him. He went to straight to sleep after dinner. He is a very large cat but rather underweight at the moment|
|This was Cat #2. We released him after the vet confirmed he was a castrated male. Oops...heehee. He showed his disgust and anger by shredding the stack of newspapers I had placed in the carrier. Sorry Mr Tabby!|
|Cat #3 was very friendly so we checked it out. We think it's a spayed female and someone's pet because she's very clean and friendly. We released her that same night|
