I recently got a request for a cat job. The IN permit doesn't cover cats as they are domestic species. I know there is a chance that they may belong to someone else but just spend time at this property. Any insight or advice greatly appriciated.

Thanks

We dont and wont do any domestic or feral cat work.It can be a very big headache with emotions running high with some folks. Traps can be damaged, stolen, threats,work vehicle vandalized, confrontations etc.

My advice is to pass it on to the SPCA or local animal control individual. Time in the business will teach you these things. Being young you will eventually understand this more clearly.

Jon A.-Bob Jameson gave you the best advice. Feral cats are more problems then what you can ever imagine.

Agreed, but understand that when it comes to cats even the law is useless as even judges get stupid over cats.

I had that feeling when I first got the call. I am under teh impression I can't legal set traps for cats anyway. All of those possibilities and problems ran through my mind but wanted your guys' opinion...though maybe I was being paranoid. I did pass it off to County Animal Control. Thanks for the advice!

There was only one time I felt right trapping feral cats and was on a home that was due to have a termite fumigation treatment.

If I did not trap them they would of died and few would of argued my needing to trap them so it was a win-win. The exclusion alone before the fumigation began was another $900.

If they were truly undeniably 100% feral and the job was out of town I wouldn't bat an eye, but upon further questioning these cats supposedly are "leftovers" from a neighbor that left. How much is true I don't know. I know they were in town and that alone made me leery about trapping them since cats roam and I have enough hurdles to cross without the law and bleeding hearts on my butt. Thanks again for all the advice. I do respect the opinion of those who have been in the business longer than I.

Thanks

Jon, I've trapped feral cats but only after checking with the town and the local game warden.

The laws aren't well written but the service is much needed. Feral cats are truly pests.

I did leave it open with the customer if Animal control couldn't or would help to contact me again and I would see what can be done. So if that happens I will check with the appropriate authorities andgo from there. I know they are just a big a pest as squirrels and moles and in my mind pose a reater health threat because people like cats

I'm with LT. We are removing feral cats from a house that sits between two houses that are feeding those cats.

Dodging an occasional bullet adds so much more excitement to the whole job!

I make sure any cat, that walks on my land, doesn't dodge any bullets. One neighbor has inside cats. I live in a rural area so we get 'extra' cats let go in our area. Sorta like the guy on trap talk, 'If it don't have a collar, its a Coyote.'

It has to be one of those real bad feelings you get when you know something is not right for me to turn down a cat job. Its most of the time easy money and nothing brightens your day like removing a cat!


it is not a stupid question if you do not know the answer

Travis you are right, something didn't sound right when she was explaining the problem. I didn't enjoy turning down the money or the exposure....but while I need exposure, in the newspaper for "theft" of some lady's cats and prob throw animal cruelty in there for good measure, is not the way I wanted it.
