Finally, I have her. I am so very excited, relieved, exhausted. This kitten has tested my ability to trap. But I finally got her.
One thing I must admit, I was very foolish today. I lifted the roof of the house she was in to make sure where she was. Then I grabbed the trap, set it by one entry, and added bricks to help prevent her from getting out. Then I put a brick and cardboard by the other entry, then set the trap. 10 hours later, she still hasn't come out. I have done it this way for the last three days. Finally I give up in the late evening, as I don't want to trap her, if I am not out there to bring her in right away.
Well, silly me. Tonight, while watching the web cam, there she was, standing on TOP of the trap. I take a second look, thinking, no that isn't her, but it was. She was never in the little house I had the trap set for. I never realised she moved to another house while I was getting everything ready. Anyhow, so I just set the trap with a bowl of her kibble, and left it in the middle of the shelter. One hour later, there she goes, right into the trap!
It took me about 15 minutes to get her out of the trap and into the cage. I put the blanket that she always sleeps on in the little house, in the cage for her. Once she started sniffing the blanket she walked out of the trap and into the cuddler that the blanket was in.
So, now, I need to work on taming her. She is completely feral. This will take a lot of time and patience. It will be all up to her now.
I will post pictures of her tomorrow.
