Peanut butter it is, the trap is set. I allready had peanut butter on hand. If I dont see results in a few days Ill try and catch my cat.:eek:
Yes, that is the only problem that comes with using the cat food or sardines ... Is there a way to keep the cat up over night?

I run into this same problem myself. We have 5 cats plus another couple neighbors we feed. All outdoors. Any live trap we put out, nets a cat.

I know this sounds nuts but tell the cat what you need to have happen. You'd be surprised how often you can get them to be a cooperative team member. I know it sounds nuts but it works for me all the time.

Anybody have a good bait to catch a raccoon , I already have a livetrap. Somebody has to have a surefire way. Thanks for any advice in advance.
Lets try this then ...

Lock the chickens in the coop and put the trap in the run. (Sorry, I can't remember if you free range or have a run. :eek:)

Just a thought ...

Marshmellows. Really and truely.

***** have a sweet tooth and marshmellows will not attract any thing else (like catfood and sardines will).

What will you do with the raccoons once you trap them? I read that back in the old days they used to feed chickens cooked raccoon!

Whatever you do, don't do what my husband did years ago to me. He said he wanted a "daniel boone" hat..... Okay at that time we weren't having **** attacks as they are now. So driving back from a friends house he saw a **** on the side of the road. He asked if I would make him a cap of it.... I said sure - never guessing what he would do next!!!!!!! and then he pulled over picked up the deceased **** by his tail. Even with him holding the **** outside of the road and me holding my head out the window on the passenger side of the car on that 1/2 mile ride home. the smell was awful................ The cap never got made! The **** was buried without honors.
Now please understand that i am a college educated person, who used to have an administrative job and am adventurous on many things. I have eaten snake - actually very good, but I think a **** would be a challenge to eat. Although many folks in the south used to eat sweet taters and ****............Is this a true story.....hahaha yes....
