    a cat in my trap lol...Not exactly what I was going for, but at least its something lol....She was completely wild. So I took her to the humane society and figured theyd humanely put her down. Its no life for her to be out there starving and if shes not starving than shes eating my chickens! So either way, it needed to be done. SO, I took her down to the humane society since our stupid animal control doesnt even take cats. Anyways they said they wouldnt take her unless I took her out of my cage and put her in theirs, cuz shes wild and theyre not "aloud" to handle them. So me being stupid me, I said, "Oh sure, No problem." HA! [​IMG]
    Long story short, I spent my afternoon in the ER getting rabies shots. In four lovely places. Now I have to go pack in 3 days for more, then at 7 days, then at 14 days then at 28 days....then....IM DONE! WOO HOO!!!

    I've found that if you fill a trash can with water (or a large garbage bag in a large trash can if the trash can leaks) and send the trap on a submarine trip for about 15 minutes, you can save a bullet. Just a thought.

    the only thing worse than a ferrile cat is a coon, just shootum and be done. I live trapped 3 coons and took them about 5 miles away. I cant prove it but coons ate several of my hens last year and were smat, would not go in my trap. I think they found there way back.
