Friday night, Dusty set out the trap, again next to where he had just seen the all black cat. The one that just seems to live it's life to torment him. Saturday morning, the cage was empty. Dusty had put tiny amounts of food around the cage, leading to it and on top of it. All of the food had been eaten. That darn cat.
This morning, we woke up to an all black cat in the cage. Dusty is not convinced it is the same black cat. Time will tell I suppose. So far, we have captured and released 5 cats. At least 4 of them are ones we have never seen before. But, on the upside, we are seeing fewer and fewer cats around our house. The dogs are barking less (they aren't fans of the cats :P) and we have less cat poo in our yard.
If nothing else, we hope the cats are just learning to stay out of our yard :P
*** An Update***
Dusty released the cat and it was really mad! He says he's pretty darn sure that it is his white whale! Yay!! We know that this cat has had several of the liters, so hopefully this will help solve the problem :)
