Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi. This is Dr. Hill. Yes it is very possible to catch the same cat again. Obviously he is hungry, so just put in an extra stinky can of cat food and you will likely get him again. Please ask any follow up questions. You can continue posting on this thread for a couple of days, even after rating my response. Take care.
I would put the trap away for now and then just feed him again and work on building trust again.
I forgot to ask. Does it look like he is sick or injured?
Let me know when you get him. He is lucky to have you looking out for him
I'm sorry that this is weighing on you so much. You can only do so much for kitties that are outdoors. If you look at the friends of feral felines site, they show how to set up an outdoor space for strays that will help keep them safe. I will try to post a link for you.
