He's a cunning cat. He's avoided the trap all day long. I even put some of his regular food by the open trap door to see if he could be enticed by the delicious smoked oysters.
I looked out to check just a few minutes ago, and Cowkitty was heading towards the trap. Thus, this day of trapping is over. I had to close the trap and put out some regulare food for Cowkitty as I didn't want to trap him again.
I'll try again tomorrow.
