All I can say is good luck. Animal Control in Los Angeles will not go into attics since they call this a free roaming cat and since it got into the attic on it's own, it will get out on it's own. They couldn't even give me any referral to contact anyone to help me. They suggested a wildlife rescue and I've spent hours online looking for someone with no luck. So, my scared cat is in an attic in a corner to which I have no physical access, he will not respond to food, coaxing, or anything else. It's a first time situation, and he's an indoor cat, so, mouse bait, not a good idea, he wouldn't know what to do with it. I have no answers, just a statement of complaint that Animal Control wouldn't do a thing, not even some sort of referral to a private animal organization that rescues cats from attics or trees.
