Sigh. Cats. - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
Sigh. Cats.
A feral cat has taken up residence near our apartment. It is either very fat or pregnant. I've contacted the Friends of Ferals, Dane County Humane Society and MadCat Pets for options on trapping and bringing her in. None have responded yet.

Have any of you dealt with this before? Will these places try to house ferals, especially pregnant ones? Given she is pregnant, it's likely she's over six months old. This means she'll be far harder to socialize.

Anyone know where I could borrow a live trap?

Anyone want a pregnant feral cat?

Folks used to have a live trap. Not sure how big it was or if it's still around. I think they used to trap coons in it?

What are you going to do once you've trapped it?

Take it to Friends of Ferals or the DCHS.

Want me to check and see if they still have it? And if it's appropriate for a cat?

Yes, please. When would you/we be able to get it?

She's checking with Dad to see if it's big enough... someone would likely have to go out to the farm to get it. I don't have plans to head that far, but those may change, who knows.

In the mean time she raises a good point... why not just call the landlord?

No reason not too though I'd hope he wouldn't just kill it.

Might be easier.

Ma & Pa have one, but it's at Green Lake. All depends on how much effort you want to put into getting it. Let me know.

Just make sure that you're at the birth. That way, the baby raptors cats will imprint on you and then you can start that Legion of Death you're always talking about but never seem to get around to starting.

My sister tried to adopt a feral a few years ago, didn't work out too well and she had to give it up to Friends of Ferals, I think it was. Basically what they did was do some situation tests, to determine how crazy it was, then try some training. None of that worked, so they took it to one of Many feral friendly farms where it now lives in the barn and eats mice and probably bites cows and stuff.

As for her pregnancy, I imagine friend of ferals would probably house her in one of their facilities until she gives birth, wait the few weeks required, then spay her before release and send the kittens off to a no-kill shelter.

Humane Society will probably put it to sleep, don't know about MadCat, but I doubt they're particularly equipped to handle them.

Oh yeah, keep calling friends of ferals, not sure if you just e-mailed before or called, but I'm sure with a little pestering they'll come out.

If I wanted a mean, fat, pregnant lady, then I wouldn't need to get one shipped over here, there's plenty of them here that want to get in my house already.

You could probably use a raccoon trap all the same.
