Hi everyone. I posted here a while ago asking for advice on the best trap to buy over the internet. I ended up buying a Tomahawk, and have started to trap a group of about six ferals in my neighborhood. Believe it or not, I caught the first two pretty quick (using good old tuna) got them fixed, vaccinated, etc. My problem is, I though I was on a roll, and the rest would go in the trap as easily as the first two. Long story short, I was wrong. It has been weeks since I caught the first two - I think the problem was that the other cats were around and witnessed the other two being trapped. As we all know, cats are smart, and now they won't go near my trap with a ten-foot pole! Some even run away before I even put it on the ground and set it! The others will go up to it, sniff for a few seconds, then trot away as well. How do you guys manage to catch all the ferals in a colony when they eventually start to get weary of you and your trap? What if they never come near me again? I will never be able to get them fixed!
