Schroeder came by again today. I had not yet eaten breakfast when I saw Linus looking intently out the glass near the bottom of the door. He then moved to look out the glass on the side of the door. I looked outside and there was Schroeder. I quickly filled a bowl for him with cat food and set it outside. A couple of hours later, I picked up a trap from a local animal shelter and placed it outside.
Here is a picture of the trap, filled with food and armed:
I don’t know if Schroeder is smart enough to notice the food but not smart enough to recognize the danger of being trapped. I also worry that I may trap other non-feline wildlife in the area.
Note: Schroeder’s story to date can be followed here.
