If you are going to rescue a cat that you see running around your area, you are going to need a safe way to trap it, both for you and the animal. An effective and humane trap is the Advantek GFA Catch & Release Animal Trap sold at Tractor Supply.
This fully assembled trap that measures is ideal for containing stray cats, but also can be used to rescue raccoons, woodchucks/groundhogs, opossums, armadillos, and other animals in this weight and size range.
It is a great deal with its bonus small trap that comes with the larger trap. These dimensions are best suited for catching and releasing chipmunks, squirrels, flying squirrels, rats and weasels, for relocation of the animal.
Having had the experience of capturing feral, and non-feral cats, I have found that this trap is just what I needed to get the job done. It has a step trigger in the rear of the cage. I entice the animal with food in the back area of the vessel, and the release works well to slam shut without a possible escape or injury.
The design of the trap, with its smooth edges prevents harm to the animal, which is what is preferred when catching a scarred animal such as a stray cat, that needs to be rescued and re-homed.
Storing the Advantek live animal trap is also easy enough, as it is lightweight enough to hang on a shed or garage wall through one of its mesh openings. Cleaning it can be done by hosing it down and letting it drip dry or pad it down with a rag. I have not experienced this item to rust in any weather. With its lifetime warranty, I don’t have to worry, although it has proven to be very durable and is thus a great bang for your buck!
I know I will be using mine for many years to come, for my cat rescues.
