Be careful with cat traps
I was speaking with someone this morning and she told me that her management condominium had been using a cat trap. She said she suspected it might be one of our old traps because the condominium cleaners had told her that the residents had moved out and tossed the trap in the garbage. Presumably they had used it for sterilisation before. The cleaners than picked the trap up and have been using it to trap cats. She isn't sure however as the facts seemed rather vague.
We have lost a substantial number of traps when we first started loaning them out because we did it for free. We wanted to make it as easy for people trapping for sterilisation as possible. People would borrow the traps and not return them however.
It's not too bad when people leave them lying about the house. It's better of course if people are actively using them or intending to use them, but we do hope people will be careful what they do with the traps. For example, people loaning the traps out to other people should be careful that the people they loan it to, use it only for sterilisation. If it's passed from person to person, it might end up being used for a completely different purpose than what it was originally meant for.
With the refundable deposit system we find people are more responsible for the traps.
