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.
