Do you want to help cats in your neighborhood? To be ready if someone’s cat escapes, or if a new cat shows up? 

March 23, 2024 – Trapper Tips and Tricks Presented by Neighborhood Cats

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM EST

Drawing from over 20 years of experience working with feral cats, the folks at Neighborhood Cats have gathered together their favorite ways of trapping the wiliest of felines.

Whether it’s putting in a clear rear door, using Spam as bait, wrapping your trap with green garden netting, or training a cat to enter a trap, you’re bound to learn something new that will improve your trapping success.

You just released a newly spayed feral kitten back into her territory and then the caretaker says they want to adopt her. You’ve caught nine of the ten cats in the colony but try as you might, number 10 just won’t go in a trap. You’re working on a hot day in a grassy field and soon after you put the traps out, your bait dishes are a mass of swarming ants – something no respectable cat would go near. Then it starts to rain. What’s a trapper to do?

We’ve got the answers to these challenges and many more. Join us in this advanced trapping class as we share 25 years of secrets learned from the toughest and wiliest of felines. We’ll talk traps, bait, positioning, sounds and all sorts of DIY hacks. Bonus: get a preview of some of the latest techniques we’ve learned while recently trapping over 600 cats in the Maui Wildfire burn zone.

Presented by the experts at Neighborhood Cats, hosted by the Community Cats Podcast and sponsored by Tomahawk Live Trap. Guaranteed even the savviest of trappers will walk away with something new!

The content for this post is a combination of a press release and an email sent by Community Cats Podcast.

I subscribe to a variety of reading lists to constantly further my knowledge of health and welfare for cats and other pets, domestic animals and wildlife. I occasionally publish press releases I think my readers will appreciate, and I share them by choice with no compensation. When I am occasionally compensated for a post I clearly note that is a “sponsored post”.
