When we moved, my poor cat went crazy and wouldn't be handled, touched, approached, or even looked at. We knew she'd calm down once all the commotion was over, so our friend lent us one of these traps for her.
One day in an empty house later(save, of course, the trap baited with her very favourite food), we had a VERY unhappy cat in a very sturdy trap.
My only complaints are:
*the carrying handle is too short or the "guard" is too small. She was able to take swipes at me until I covered the trap with a blanket and carried it using a glove.
*the release mechanism is also too uncomfortably close to the unhappy trap-ee. Leather gloves solved this once again.
Otherwise, it worked perfectly!
(By the way, my cat calmed down after about two days and is sitting next to me now, purring)
