Just the question I was looking for - Thanks KathyM!
I've never trapped, or taken a cat to a "quickie" sterilization - I've always had my cats stay at the vets another day - I'm so afraid of doing something wrong.
But, life brings new challenges - I've been caring for two stray/feral, 1 female (feral), and 1 male (stray) since last June/July 2008. But, because I am a novice about ferals, or strays - I was behind the 8 ball, and two cute kittens showed up.
I looked for help but the two no-kill places are over booked, the animal control wanted to rent a trap to me for $25 for 5 days, and folks trying to adopt out cats at PetSmart were more afraid that I was trying to get them to take more cats and didn't offer much advice - so, didn't get the help I was looking for.
At the time I couldn't trap anyway because I live in the desert, and night time temps were hanging around over 100 degrees -
Back to the topic, sorry - ANYway - I just ordered a Tru-Catch trap today, will attempt to trap both of them - the mommy first, I hope. I am most concerned about the little mommy - not wanting her to be upset about her in a trap, and concerned about her babies.... so, I was thinking about this product - Feliway maybe helping her through all this trauma.
I wished the Feliway would work on me - I'm sooo stressed out over having to do this
