So we got displaced from a chimney fire on Saturday afternoon. Luckily, everyone was okay and the fire just smoldered some leaves, it didn’t combust. We were able to get our cat Squiggy to the hotel on Saturday night. And we briefly saw our other cat Lenny.
So luckily, they didn’t run out of their house after the fire.
Now it’s Tuesday, and we still haven’t got Lenny.
We got a Havahart trap from the Ansonia Animal Control on Monday to try to corral Lenny and we went back 5 times yesterday.
Today we went again this morning and thought it would be easier if we could do a web camera on Lenny. Nothing made sense to buy at Target or Best Buy. Eventually my wife Lanna googled the Alfred app. And we used an old Galaxy S4 phone and a $5 cell tripod at Five Below.
It was easy for Lanna to set up, I was napping. And we just went back once to try putting a t-shirt in there and find out Lenny was pushing kibble out of the trap without going in.
So we took the kibble out, swept the floor and changed the wet food to a seafood one.
And at 8:42pm we saw Lenny on the web cam checking things out.
I really hope he takes the bait and we can get him soon.
It would be a huge relief after a very tough weekend.
