Cat Trap FAIL! – Little Ninja kitten escapes again

The trap FAILS even though the kitten steps right on the activation panel! I tested this trap twice with my finger before I left the attic, and it was working perfectly (slammed shut when weight-plate touched). Afterward I looked it over and couldn’t find anything wrong with the settings. This is the exact same trap that successfully caught the gray-kitten on its first try. How did Little Ninja escape this time? Divine intervention? Video 6a Wethank Valley Cats rescue for finding these kittens a new home together! If you would like to adopt kittens or cats please visit the Petfinder website.

Meow, the 39-pound cat who made appearances on “Today” and “Anderson Cooper” as he struggled to pare off the pounds, died this weekend, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society announced Monday. Meow meowed his last after suffering respiratory distress and then pulmonary failure Saturday, the shelter said. He had won national attention after his elderly owner dropped off the orange-and-white tubby tabby — weighing in at a walloping 39 pounds and with the contours of a large, fluffy pancake — at a New Mexico shelter last month. That facility, in turn, called in the Santa Fe shelter, which placed him in a foster home in hopes he could lose enough weight to be adopted. As he struggled to drop the pounds, two-year-old Meow became a national celebrity, traveling to New York for appearances on NBC’s “Today” show and “Anderson.” In a statement posted to its Facebook page, the Santa Fe shelter said Meow began wheezing last Thursday in his foster home and despite the efforts of four veterinarians, he succumbed to pulmonary failure. “Meow had been doing so well in his foster home; walking up stairs and seeking affection — that it is so very hard to believe he is gone,” the statement said. “We will forever be grateful for the attention Meow’s size brought to pet obesity and to animal shelters across the country.”

    I caught 8 feral kittensone summer at the place i worked. Sometimes they are small and sometimes the activation pads are insensitive. I just tied the “gate” open with a piece of string tied to a post for tension and snipped it when the kittens got in. If you have time to set up a camera…

    There was one I never got though. He was caught then released by someone. Never did get him again.

    This trap has a door at each end so the person can set the trap as one entrance or two (if desired). But ideally, the trip-plate should be far from the selected slamming-door, because if the slamming-door is too near the trip-plate, then it might wham down on the animal and hurt them. :)

    Thanks for clarifying, however if your trap looks anything like mine Im thinking you have it backwards because the side that is closed on a 45 degree angle is supposed to be the one that closes when the cat walks onto the switch. Isn’t that side that the kitten walking in on supposed to be closed? And the side that is closed should be open?

    Each time we set the trap we did the thumb test as recommended, and all parts were set right and working correctly. In fact, this trap did catch the other kitten (the gray kitten; see earlier video) because the other kitten was heavy enough. The only thing that finally fixed our trap problems with this black kitten was to buy a smaller trap (see later video) that was sensitive enough to respond to this very-underweight kitten.

    you need to read the instruction manual to that humane trap and maybe youll realize why it failed. DUH

    A mama-cat snuck into our attic through a window and gave birth to kittens there and was raising them… then the mama-cat got injured & didn’t come back… so then we heard the kittens meowing. We managed to catch them both with these traps, and eventually they were adopted.

    I worked in a place where some feral kittens were born in the yard. Administration set out a trap with food, caught each of them except one, my favorite, a little tuxedo girl. She patiently observed each of her sibs as they entered the trap & were caught. She was able to figure out how the trap worked, would go in, take the food & leave. They never did catch her but I did, with the help of 3 nurses. She lived with me for 19 years. RIP sweetie.

    Aha! The kitten found a way around the trap. It didn’t step on the plate; it stepped over it. Notice how slowly it moves, being extremely careful not to touch it.
