20+ Reddit Users Wanted to Know If Cat Traps Worked and Got an Immediate Answer

A well-known Internet trick says that if you make a square out of tape on the floor, it can “catch” your cat in just a few seconds. The trick seems to work well for many cats, but the tape square is not the only trap you can use to capture your sweet feline. A bath mat, a shoe, a book, or even a belt — they all can become highly efficient cat catchers if you just leave them on the floor and watch. But be warned — some traps work so well, they can capture your kitty before you can even blink.
