A Little More Camp

I've been working on my Camp Loopy Project 2 again, and I plan on trying to get it finished over the weekend (so you'll only be seeing it a little bit more).  I've worked five repeats of the Roman Stripe and then I weighed my remaining yarn.  Since I know how much yarn each repeat takes, I can tell that according to weight, I can work one more repeat of the Roman Stripe and then move on to the edging.  I'm past the yardage minimum now, but I'm going to go ahead and try to use up as much yarn as I can.  This is what I'll be working on over the weekend.

I do have a bit of a non knitting related issue and I'm hoping that the hive mind of the blog will be able to help.  One of my neighbors has some outside cats that showed up a while back, hungry and cold, so she helped them out.  I've been helping her try to catch them, to get them fixed (she doesn't have a problem with them living there, but doesn't want to be overrun with cats).  We tried humane traps and while the female went in it once, she wasn't heavy enough to trip it.  They did have a batch of kittens, but the kittens are old enough now to separate from their parents (dad has stuck around and been a good kitty daddy), so we're trying to catch them again.  The male will let us pick him up, but he doesn't want to go into a crate to go to the vet (big surprise there).  The female is much more shy and I don't have a clue how we'll catch the kittens.  Have any of you done this?  We don't want to turn them over to animal control because she doesn't mind them staying in her yard, she'll feed them and water them and the yard is safe for them, but for their health, they need to be fixed.  Any ideas?

I rescued two kittens near our storage building unit by using food and lots of patience and perseverance but it was still hard and I couldn't catch the mom. Here's another link to go with Judith's; http://fixourferals.org/home/trapping-care/hard-to-trap-cats-tips-and-tricks/
Good luck!

If the cat lets you pick them up, but doesn't like a carrier, open the carrier and place it on the ground so the door is on top. Then you can ease the cat down (back feet first) and can often get the door closed before they can jump back out.
