I have been trapping for a while, and I am having trouble catching those last few elusive cats, do you have any ideas?

First, determine the actual problem. Are the cats trap wary-meaning they wont go near them? Or are they able to get in and remove the food without tripping the trap mechanism? It may be as simple as getting a smaller trap. TNR of Warren uses smaller sized traps often used for other animals to alleviate the problem of larger cats able to get in and get food without setting off the trapping mechanism. There are a number of camouflaging techniques, training techniques or trap innovations to help you in this. Alley Cat Allies has a great page along with pictures and more links to help you with this: www.neighborhoodcats.org/info/hardtocatch.htm.
