If you wish to purchase your own traps, we recommend the following:

30ltd

TruCatch 30 LTD

This trap works with nearly all cats and is sensitive enough to use with kittens.  It has a gravity drop door so there is no spring to cause the door to snap shut on tails or kittens. The trip pedal is wide enough to prevent cats from stepping over it.

Purchase from TruCatch.

fatcat2

TruCatch Fat Cat Trap 30FCD

This trap is identical to the 30LTD, only bigger.  It can either be used as a traditional box trap or it can double as a transfer cage for the Tomahawk drop trap as the doors match up perfectly.

 
Purchase from TruCatch.

drop trap

Tomahawk DT1 - Neighborhood Cats Drop Trap

We like this drop trap because of its weatherproof construction.  Chain it up over the food bowl for two weeks and that hard to catch cat is guaranteed to be eating under it when you come back to trap.

Purchase from Tomahawk.
