How To Safely Trap Cats for TNVR
Cats Anonymous, Covered Live Traps
Trapped cats require care and continuous monitoring.
For the best outcomes:
- Only trap cats the night before their scheduled TNVR visit.
- Keep trapped cats covered at all times.
Trap covers keep the cat calm and quiet.
This is important for your safety, the safety of the cat and our team.
- Move trapped cats to a safe, warm and dry location.
- Look for any trapped mother cats that may be nursing.
