A Guide to Cat Rescue in Disasters

I’ve started researching cat extraction techniques, after an unsuccessful attempt to remove a scared cat from under a king bed.  Thanks to the glory of the internet, I came across this article, “A Guide to Cat Rescue in Disasters” by Christopher Hersha.

I’m thinking of buying a Havahart trap. I would need to make two visits. During the first visit, I would set up the trap. When and if the cat goes into the trap, I would make a second visit. The problem is that the cat may need to stay in the trap for several hours, since I wouldn’t always be able to run right over to the apartment. I think I would only use this method for a cat who was in desperate need of a shave due to matting.  The discomfort of being in the trap would be outweighed by the importance of removing mats.

I groom cats in your own home. I do everthing needed for a soft, clean cat. Claw trims to prevent painful scratches and damaged furniture. Brushing to prevent furballs and matting. Rear-end trims to keep things clean after the litter box visit. Baths for soft, shiny fur. Clients praise my calm, gentle yet firm attitude. Cat sitting visits last 1/2 hour. Daily photo, fresh food and water, playtime, cuddles. A true "cat nanny".
