This is why I prefer the smaller box traps with a cross section about 8" x 8". The grown cats have to crouch a bit which makes it harder for them to dodge the trigger. IME, cats are basically the opposite of claustrophobic. The ferals that hang out at the office seek cover under cars or behind a planter. I assume they have realized that anything bigger than them either can't move as fast in the confined spaces or just can't fit in there. I have also noticed that cheaper canned cat food smells stronger than canned tuna, and that the office cats can smell it from a distance.
