Nice idea but unless your cat is feral (and even they have difficulty), it probably won't be able to handle a grown rat. My feral "mama" caught a live rat to train her kittens and paid for it with a pretty bad cut to the leg--she absolutely hates rats now but doesn't go after the grown ones often. Cats are much likelier to go after the babies instead of grown rats.

Don't let her beauty fool you, she has some long toes on those paws that have razor sharp claws.. and she is as fast as a whip. She jumps 4 to 5 ft. from almost a stand still. Unfortunately we had to put her in time out and put another bell on her neck after she caught a hummingbird. She got in a lot of trouble for that. I try not to even let her out anymore.
Notice the critter at her feet.

The rat's been taking the bait(peanut butter, banana slice, cheese) but not setting off the trap. I've tried putting it under the tab thingy, on top, on top and bottom. I know the trap works, the rain set it off last night. Is there a special trick to this?
