I have a feral cat that comes around my house eats my cats' food and beats them up and I am getting tired of it. What do I use to catch it? I have access to a HAVAHART trap and multiple No. 1LS traps. Is there anything specific I should use as bait?

I really wouldnt want to release one from a foothold, at least one that isnt "sedated" :twisted:

I use a fresh killed squirrel, kind of skinned out and gutted.
Hang it in the cage, fur and all.

Some of those feral cats are hard enough to get out of a cage trap without them going crazy. Talk about some angry critters :shock: . Good luck with the cat trapping. I would suggest using cat food like Swamp said or tuna or some kind of bird like duck or chicken if you have it. Rabbit works good too. Cats arent incredibly picky when it comes to meat.

I usually sedate them with 60 grains of Cu. jackeded high speed injection. Kind of the same thing that PETA does with tens of thousands of animals they deal with each year.
