Help for Cats

How do I trap feral cats for TNR?

First find out if the cat has been trapped before and gone through a TNR program. To do this check the cat for an ear tip. An ear tip should be located on the left ear. It should look like a centimetre has been removed from the ear making a straight line. Look at the pictures below to get an idea of what this looks like on a cat:

If the cat appears to not be ear tipped or you are not sure the next step is to get a humane cat trap. We recommend using Tomhawk's live cat traps (click here to buy). You can also rent traps from us for FREE! with NO deposit! To find out more call us at 844-336-2287. 

Once you have a trap you need to set it up to catch the cat. First though, make sure to ALWAYS have  an appointment for the cat before trapping. You should never trap a cat if you have no where to take it. We suggest trapping the day before your appointment or the morning of.  Follow the steps below once you are ready to set out your trap:


Gather your supplies

You will need:

  • a trap

  • a trap cover (a sheet, blanket or towel)

  • newspaper

  • bait (smelly foods like tuna, mackerel or sardines work great)

  • a spoon
