Wow I can hardly believe this but this afternoon, I actually caught Mimi in the trap. I decided not to set it, but to sit beside the trap and operate it manually. Over the past 10 days I have got Mimi used to going inside to eat, and although still wary, she couldn’t resist the bacon, chicken and tuna on offer. I was very patient and let her get right inside before I triggered the door, and afterwards Pam and I just looked at one another in amazement!!!
We have only been trying to catch her on and off for about a year, and it is only 2 litters and 4 kittens later!!!
Now Mimi is spending the night in the trap, with just some water, until her appointment with vet Miguel at 11am. She will afterwards be transferred to a bigger cage to await her trip to Germany, hopefully on July 10th. A big thank you to Nicola and Erika for agreeing to take her in during this time. You are stars!
She IS going to have a tough couple of weeks but it will all be worth it, and all I can add right now is YIPPEEE … YIPPEEE … YIPPEEEEEE!!!!!
