Some of the cats were not all that impressed with the traps. Some ate the food but didn't activate the trap while others, like this tabby, simply yawned and stretched.
Michele Quandt led a volunteer group of feral cat trappers.

EYOTA — "I love the smell of savory salmon in the morning," Kathy Forsman said Saturday while preparing to trap cats in Eyota.
The smell of cat food tells the rural Eyota woman that members of Camp Companion are setting traps for feral cats. The animals are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, have their left ear clipped to identify them as being treated, then returned to the wild.
