Default How to trap a feral cat?

I came across this huge male cat in my near my apartment. He has short hair, has face somewhat like British Shorthair's but with very small rounded ears. However, he has very bad eye infection (and possibly skin condition too). I tried getting close to him and he started hissing very loudly. Then I ran upstairs and grab some cat food and fed him. I managed to get close to him but the moment my finger touched his body, he hissed! I think he has the potential to be groomed into a very handsome cat given proper medication, care and diet. I would really love to trap this cat, send him for treatment and then put him up for adoption to people who would give him a good home -- or even keep him.

I have had no animal rescue experience. How do I go about trapping this cat? Please help!

I think he might be abused before thus not trusting humans and that, takes quiet some time to be connected again. Or, he might be in deep pain that he ask to be leave alone.

For me usually if I come across this kind of cat, I take time to make friends cause is never too good to rush.But if condition is serious, I will grab it, I don't care if I get hurt and stuff inside the cage to go to vet. I hope that helps :o
I have 2 cats, 3 turtle, 3 dogs.
'Used' to have 8 turtles, 14-16 chickens and rabbits. In Bali last time used to have 2 dog. :P

I am trying to trap my lost cat who has turned feral also.
I got info from a website and help and suggestions on how to do it.

More info on how to trap, try here


The jalan pasar/pudu market has a few shops selling musang traps RM40-50 that can be used/modified into a cat trap.

Good Luck!
