Caught a fifth cat-- Paint! This is good. But we're still missing Miss Pigpen (aka Hannah.) So five cats in crates are on my balcony, awaiting pickup, and four more sit, loaded and ready, outside.
Three of the five cats were caught in the same place-- I just keep replacing that crate with an empty one. Fingers crossed, maybe Pigpen will visit there next.
Funnily enough, I've caught 6 cats tonight and 5 were ones I wanted. The sixth was Raven, a domestic (and already spayed) black cat wearing a collar who is sibling to Whiskey (aka Sam). Obviously I let her go right away!
If I'm interpreting DNL's comments correctly, though, Miss Pigpen had a litter of kittens this past Spring (which were domesticated and taken to Petco, apparently), so she's definitely not speutered.
Everyone, please send "Pigpen go in the trap," vibes.
