I know... this "person" that traps using leg traps is a monster in my mind. HOW can he even sleep at night? Any ideas on what I could do in this situation? I've already been told Animal Control won't do anything about it. It just breaks my heart

Yeah, I think if it's possible, you could take the cat and trap all together and take it to the shelter.

Good idea Renee. I'm going to go to the local convenient food store and get some tuna fish, and then go cover the cage.
I'm hoping someone is home so I can at least talk to them and tell them the cat is caught if they don't know (but I doubt they are home). I'm also curious as to what they are planning to do with the cat...
If not, I'm going to call first thing in the morning if the cat is still there and no one is home.

I don't want to take the whole cage and the cat...! Someone might shoot me for stealing the cage (lol) Plus, I think everything is closed unless its an emergency

At least you're there for it ! I HATE leg traps !! We used to trip them along our creek . Once one of our dogs got caught ! Luckily nothing bad happened . The kids were with the dogs and one ran back to tell me . I quickly grabbed tools and a horse wrap in case I needed to fashion a muzzle . Only blood was my head ! I got my head rushing under barbed wire .... tetanus shot time .

I feel like a "cat burglar"

I put tuna in the cage and covered it - the cat was spitting at me and trying to claw me I was going to move the trap, but it is chained down...

I'll let you guys know if the people come home tomorrow, or if I called, and what happened . . .

Our apl doens't take feral cats and the are not taking any cats right now they are so full.

They hopefully are doing some other spay and release program-otherwise they are probally going to put it down. There have been a lot of people complaining in the paper about the strays lately. If you end up talking to them maybe try to get them in touch with one of the spay and release things. I know there was a vet ion cleveland doing ferrels for 20$.

That's what I figured. I'm a little confused, though, because I volunteered at the APL Tuesday and they don't have very many pets at all (compared to before when they used to refuse animals). Maybe I'm just dumb, but it seemed as if there were more volunteers then there were dogs... I know they're hurting for the money...
I was just going to call them so somebody would do something about the cat being trapped all night long and stuff
There is a TNR link on the page, and I have been searching pages all night. Unless you pay for it yourself, it can't/won't be done. There's just no funds and no organizations in the area (that I can find!)

I'm very nervous as to what this household plans to do with the trapped cat...

I don't often read the newspaper - too many depressing stories [lol] The cats are very bad in the neighborhood. It's annoying, I hate it, but I don't want any animals to suffer

This is the best suggestion if you are truly worried. If you try to remove the cat from the trap, especially with not knowing how these traps work & if the cat is feral, then chances are you will spend your night in the emergency room. Even "nice" cats go absolutely beserk when being removed from these traps.

Just throw a towel over the cage to shield the cat from the elements. Drop in some food if you want. And DO call your local AC to pick up the cat. Do NOT, & I repeat, do NOT try to remove this cat!

oh, dang, I forgot to update... lol, sorry

I went back the next day a little before noon and the whole trap was gone, so either the people living there came home and took the cat... somewhere... or someone else did something that morning.
So, I'll never know what exactly happened to the cat. Hopefully something good - but at least it won't be trapped in the cold. :/
