    Trapping Possums with hold trap ??

    The other half is worried about me using hold traps to catch possums on our 32h farm, 16h natural bush and 16 pastures.
    She is concerned that the traps are liable to catch Cats (We have 4 British Short Hair Cats).
    I have said that the cats shouldn't be attracted to possum bait and the closest trap will be 1/2km away, so she shouldn't be a concerned.
    Anybody got a better ways or some way of alleviating her of the fear that the cats will get caught.
    I have been doing the boundary walk at night and shooting but very hit and miss 1 or 2 I see but how many I don't see ??
