Feral cat in attic - what to do about it? (Holland)

Hi - our house has a very old loft where a feral cat lives in the loft cavity. Since this is an old place, the roof leaks in some spots, so they are not all that wet, but the floor is wet. It's a good place to hide away because they can move out of the way when cars come by. The loft is under our bedroom. So, our question is - what should we do?

I love cats, but I don't like it. I would like to capture this cat and have her put to sleep if I can, but I don't have the skills. There's just one problem: the cat seems to be pregnant. What can we do?

I'd say try a trap and then release her, but there is no guarantee that the cat will be released. What are your thoughts?

Hi guys - i do love cats but I didn't love the idea of trapping and having to kill a pregnant cat. Do you think there is a chance she could give birth? She is a healthy looking cat and seems very strong. Thanks

We are planning to use two traps - one big one and one small one. I didn't know if trapping was good for pregnant cats. But I know we can give her a little milk to take a shower before we take her. I'm thinking we might wt till tomorrow morning and catch her in the trap and then give her some milk, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for your responses.

The cat is very strong and is eating the mouse and mouse guts that are in the attic.

I would just trap her, give her some milk and let her go, as long as you make sure that the cat doesn't get pregnant.

It's a lot better for the cat than to be trapped and then released, because sometimes they catch and eat the cat instead. It's usually better to just try to trap them and then release them. Of course, if the cat is pregnant you have to do a bit more of the releasing.

You should probably not be using traps that don't have any kill mechanism in them. There are a lot of good ones on the market now. There are different styles and mechanisms. There is no way to let her run off without having the kill mechanism because the trap has to hold the mouse and hold her without her getting away.

The only thing to watch out for when using a regular mouse trap is that they sometimes have a way of "releasing" the mouse by pushing it into a second trap. The mouse can run off and come back agn for you to do it agn. You don't want that. It can lead to a really long mouse trap.

We used regular mouse traps - a very inexpensive one - just one that didn't have the kill mechanism.

We are using just regular mouse traps that don't have the kill mechanism in them. It is so inexpensive, it's worth the money. They are usually avlable at most any pet store.

If you do it, take the trap to your veterinarian and ask them for the name and address of the company. Go look up their website and get a list of where to get it. Get them to eml you a free mouse trap as part of their business.

You will probably want to have it tested in case you aren't doing it right. Maybe have them test the trap to make sure it is working properly. You should get it from a laboratory that does testing.

A lot of cat breeders don't use the regular traps. They are getting cats who are wild or house cats. They use special traps.

Most traps don't really work for cats. They have to put their paw over the sensor and pull it. That works ok for regular mice. But cats don't get into the same mindset. A lot of the cats that are caught are in cat shelters. They don't know how to get into the right mindset. There are a lot of cat parents who take their cats in from the local shelter.

That is why I sd to get your trap tested. I didn't know if it was going to work. I didn't know if I had someone who had cats who could catch the cat. But after you get the trap tested and you are positive that it is working, then you want to keep doing it.

I am really happy that the one time I was lucky enough to catch a cat in the trap, that it was in the backyard and the trap got the cat and I was able to get it tested. I wanted to know if I had caught the cat alive. The trap tested. So it worked. I was really happy with it.

So you will want to know the same thing. If you do it, take the trap to a testing facility and they will run a series of tests on it. If you can do it right away, I would just get some of the more expensive traps that are going to catch wildcats and not feral. It might help if the trap is getting feral cats. But if you are trying to catch wildcats, it isn't going to be an option. You will want the one that will catch feral cats. They will be in different sizes for the different types of feral cats. But you are probably going to get a $20 one.

And then another option is the one-cat trap. It looks like a normal mouse trap. It has a little cat house on the back. You get some cat food. You let the cat out and put the trap on top of a table and put the cat food out. Then you let the cat out of the house and it eats and sleeps. You replace the food every time you use it. Then you pull it off and bring it to the testing lab. They are going to do their thing with it. And if it doesn't trap feral, they won't want to test it. But if it does, it is in their hand and it is up to them how they deal with it.

One of the things you are going to find out is that a lot of feral cats will kill it if they can. They won't have any concern for catching it. They might not be aware that there is a trapped cat in the house. They may smell it. But they may come in and kill it.

They may eat the cat as if it is a cat. If they have a houseful of kittens, they may want to have kittens and feed them. So, you have to be careful that you don't pull a trap off. Because if you pull it off too hard, they will break it off. And then they will not be interested in eating it. It will be gone. And then you can just put it in the ml.

The testing lab might not work with your trap. You may have to work with your cat-killing orgy.

But the lab might test it, then decide not to keep it. So they might take your money and not give you your trap back. Maybe they will put it in a dumpster. But they might decide to just throw it out. If they are doing a feral study, they may just throw it out without testing it.

It might be gone. You could get the return receipt, but you might not see your trap for a long time.

I think feral cat traps should be the way people collect cats. In the case of people who own property with feral cats, I would like to see trapping be done humanely. I don't think it should ever be done as a way to kill the cat. I don't think it is acceptable to trap them.
