Just a quick question... I think maybe I'm being a little "obsessive" about checking my trap, lol. I've been going out to check it every half hour to an hour or so. I don't want anyone to have to stay in there too long, that's why I check it so much... but I think maybe that's why I'm not having any luck so far? Do you think maybe because they hear/see/smell me in there so often that they're not going to come out? I've only seen one of the cats today but I'm pretty sure the other two are under the office room in the barn where they've been hiding. I have a couple tiny pieces of fish in front of the trap, and then several more pieces inside and a couple pieces of hot dog. I also took away their dry food last night so they'll be hungry. I have the trap covered with two old jackets that were in the barn, and I put a bunch of hay on and around it to disguise it. I have two pieces of cardboard inside the trap, one with the food on it, and the other at the entrance so that they don't have to step on the wire. And the trap is right between their hiding place and where we keep their food. Any other suggestions for me? I've done this before, but the last two cats I've trapped went in pretty much right away.
