There's a kitten at school. I guess there are a few. But anyway, I saw this one in December. A little black one. I took a trap to school and left it there for hours and nothing. I was there at dusk and saw a couple of adult cats running across the yard there. I realized that there must be some type of cat population there, so maybe the spot I had seen the cat wasn't his regular spot.
But today I saw him again. He kept coming out to lay in the sun, but if I came towards him he'd run back under the building. There were people everywhere, mind you, but I guess he's gotten as good at ignoring them as they do him.
I had a cat trap in the truck bed so went and bought some tuna and put it out. I stood closeby and read a book. A few minutes later I saw him poking around the trap. Snap! I was so happy - I ran over to grab the trap, by which time there was an entire mob of people watching the happenings.
As I was gathering everything together to go back to the truck, the cat started running back and forth in the trap. Then he tapped the door and IT MOVED. It's supposed to lock. And then, in an instant, he just slipped out. I was so upset. I re-loaded the trap and left for class. Three hours later, it still sat there, untouched.
I just feel awful because it's getting so cold. Bad cold spell - the low is 40 tonight. The poor little kitten is going to be so cold. I think it'll get down to like 38 tomorrow night. I guess I'll give it til next week and try again, by which time maybe he'll forget how evil the trap is.
In other news, our fridge broke. We have a little fridge in the bar thankfully so we put most everything in there and brought our freezer stuff to Patty's. We bought a little freezer tonight as a backup and I had some stuff that wouldn't fit in the little fridge, so I set it outside. I guess the cold spell is good for something.
We turned the heat on. I set it to 76. :)
All these classes are killing me. I have two books to read before Thursday. And am juggling like four others that I'm behind on. Whee!
