Review RateBest traps ever.
After 2 1/2 years of TNR, I was down to 3 females at one colony, and 2 at the other. All 5 were true feral and extremely trap smart. They were very small girls, and were too light to trigger my traps. In desperation I purchased 2 of these traps, although they were much more expensive than the old ones. In 3 days I had all 5, plus an injured abandoned male. Someone recently borrowed one of my traps and caught a kitten that didn't even weigh 2 pounds! These are excellent, and the feeding door is pretty handy when you have to house a cat that is not at all domesticated.
Review RateReliable safe trap
I have trapped over 38 feral cats with the magnetic handle trap from Havahart. Been successful each time. My experience is positive and I don't have time and effort to waste so this trap is reliable.
Review RateNot a product I can recommend
I bought this trap as to help our feral rescue group, which we must run on a shoestring. Having trapped feral and abandoned cats and kittens for 15 years, my partners and I found this trap to be poorly designed to the point that it is not functional due to poor reliability. [Disclosure: several of us are engineers, and the trap is set up properly, per instructions.] The trip plate often slips after being set (so that it doesn't trip), and we found it takes a much stronger force than the weight of a stray cat to trip the plate when it is properly set. We wasted many precious hours and lost at least one pregnant queen due to the poor design and construction of this trap. It must be noted that the cut metal ends of the frame are sharp and catch on material as well. The trap end is also not square - meaning that the angles are not right angles, and the end flap does not fit well. We have had to purchase a replacement trap from a different vendor - with funds that could have gone towards TNR. Extremely disappointing.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. Havahart® aims to provide our customers with high-quality and reliable products. We regret that this trap did not meet those expectations and apologize for this experience.

Review Rateexcellent purchase
Very well design and construction materials. Easy to assemble and to set the trap. We had very good success with the cages. I would recommend these cages in a heart beat.
Review RateCheap piece of garbage compared to what they produced in the past.
I purchased this through Amazon. It was much more cheaply made than the Havahart traps I purchased in the past. I correctly assembled it with all reinforcing rods in place. A feral cat forced his way through the back panel and floor of the trap today. This cat needed medical attention because of wounds it had sustained, and this trap may have cost him his life. NOT HAPPY and will never buy another Havahart.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateBest cat trap madeI bought these traps cause the aspca didn't like my old trap. These traps have it all. Not only do they catch cats they are designed so they can remain in the trap while they recuperate from the surgery after being neutered. They have a feature that allows one to block off a portion of the trap near the back so one can open the back and place food and water in the trap without the feral cat escaping. Great design feature Havahart has thought of everything. These traps fold up easily for convenient storage. At first I didn't like the light gauge wire used but it holds up just fine and makes these traps very light weight which is appreciated when they are full of trapped cats. Thank you Havahart
Review RateA few issues that could improve the Feral Cat Trap
I bought this trap for feral cats. Out of the box the door release did not line up correctly into the metal slot. After speaking with customer service I decided to bend it into place like you used to do with the old mouse traps. Problem 1 solved. I trapped the feral cat that was causing problems and then my problems began. The trap needs to be secured with snap ties before you ever move the trap. With the first motion the cat's head came out under the trap door by pressuring the light gauge screen construction of the cage. Pushing the cats head back in left fur torn out and I feared for the safety of the cat. I quickly put in the cage separation bars, only to have the cat become stuck between the top of the bars and the cage as the screen construction on the cage also bent easily enough for the cat to press above the divider. I quickly grabbed a hand full of snap ties and snap tied the cage to the door, then the top of the cage to the divider and basically reinforced the cage at both ends for fear of losing or hurting the animal. While the trap does easily catch the animal it could really use some stronger screen material for the outside box of the cage. Prior to using it and especially moving it I would certainly advise securing any inside parts you can to strengthen the screen body of the trap.Response From Havahart®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. We apologize for the condition in which this trap was received. When properly assembled, this trap should not need to be secured with snap ties. It is also very important to keep an animal calm when transporting. To sooth the animal, we recommend placing a burlap sac or towel over the trap and speak in a low voice to alert the animal of your presence prior to moving it. We would like to learn more about this experience and take this opportunity to make things right.

Review RateGreat product!I purchased this for the Ranch where I work to trap feral cats so we could get them spayed/neutered/vaccinated. This is a quality product and very humane to the kitties! Thanks!
Review RateStray cat rescue,trap
The trap came in a timely manner. The wire used in the trap is not the quality of my other traps. I found the feral cat rescue trap hard to assemble. Did not understand 2 of the instructions for the access door to open it to put in food and water in. Did not understand why you would put the trap on metal door end upright with animal in the trap. I bought the trap for the divider to keep animal secure when releasing animal. Divider is not easy to insert when you need to do it in a hurry with animal in trap.Response From Havahart®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Hello Charla, We apologize for this experience and appreciate the feedback regarding the instructions and the divider. This will be shared with our Product Manager. The safety of both the cat and the trapper are kept in mind when using the divider. During insertion, this will reduce the cat's ability to reach out for the person or the divider. We recommend wearing gloves when handling the trap to avoid scratches from the cat. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-HAVAHART (1-855-542-8242) with any additional questions.
