Part of my duties as being a cat caretaker and rescuer is to
watch over the cats and to trap them if any of them are injured. So when the
black stray cat that we call Buddy showed up at the workshop with noticeable lump
on his upper leg I knew that he needed veterinarian care.
Feral kitten I trapped in Live animal trap
Sometimes I can pick this cat up because he is a socialized neighborhood
cat. He is up to date with
vaccines, but that was not the case
today. Generally all I need to do is
call him and he will come to me, but due to the wound he ran to the back of the
workshop and hid.

I decided to set up the Havahart double door trap that I bought at amazon.com in the workshop and close off the
kitty door so he could not exit and other cats could not enter.
The live animal trap was set and baited with Friskies mixed
grill canned cat food. This stinky food
should attract the cat into the live animal trap. I
also left a pet water bowl outside the trap.
If the cat does not enter the trap this evening at lease he will have
water to drink and will not get dehydrated.
Hoping the cat enters the animal trap because his leg needs to be
looked at by a veterinarian.
