Okay we are going to try to rent a humane cat trap from the humane society thank you again you ppl are sooo helpful!

One trick I haven't seen here is I think you should try & bait your trap (or even just use as bait) Kentucky Fried Chicken. It's supposed to be irresistable. Of course that's if you're in the US - I didn't check before I started typing this - keep us updated!

What a little stinker, by the way, LOL.

HOORAY!!!
Socks is out and we've sealed up the vent grates for good.
Socks isn't very happy with us right now.
he sat growling at me all night.And giving me dirty looks every now and then.
When we got him out, we got him right to the vet because of the rust in the vents.He was okay.
Anyway thank you soooo much for the help everyone!

when we took apart the ductwork, socks came running up to us in fright because his favorite hiding spot wasnt dark anymore.
He's still giving me dark looks.

It sounds to me like he could use a nice dark place to call his own. We just had to buy a crate for our puppy, for nighttime, and we put a blanket over it...and at just about any time of day one of the cats is using it. I think he needs a "den".

I'm sooooo glad that your kitty is out and safe! He's upset now, but he'll soon get over it. As suggested set up a spot for him where he can have a quiet dark place of his own, maybe put a blanket in the corner of the closet and always leave the door open so he can get in and out.

Two of the favoured spots for my cats is the pots cupboard which Chynna figured out how to open and the far corner of my bedroom closet. Both places are dark and not easily accessible by a human, LOL

Hehe... Yeah, he's gonna be hiding and growling for a while. Don't worry--give him space and he'll warm up to you eventually. And I agree with the idea of a "den"--I bet he'd love a plastic bin, turned on its side, facing the wall and covered with a blanket; and make a rule that nobody disturbs him when he's in his den. Put some catnip in there to attract him to it if he's shy about it... and if he doesn't like it you can always take it apart and use the bin for storage again.

Oh yes we will certainly be making him a den so he doesn't try to find one again!
Okay I know I have said thank you A LOT, but there's never too much of a good thing right? (okay except maybe chocolate!)
Thanks again!
