It’s low-profile design makes it so it will be hardly noticed by passers by. You can put them in public areas like schools, office buildings and restaurants and tackle your mouse problem efficiently.

 

Whether you have a lone mouse that has scurried into your home or have come down with a substantial infestation, the Tin Cat Trap can handle it all safely and humanely. Each Tin Cat trap has the capacity to catch and contain up to 30 mice, reducing time spent emptying your trap and maximizing the amount of mice you can capture.

 

Simple 3-Step Method

  1. Bait – One dab of peanut butter is all you need. The mice will be able to pick up the scent immediately and not be able to resist checking out where the source is.

  2. Place – Setting the trap is as easy as placing it down where mice have previously been spotted.

  3. Release – When the trap is full, follow your local authority’s guidelines for releasing captured animals into the wild. You can reuse your trap as many times as you need.

 

If you’re grossed out by the sight of a dead mouse, then the Tin Cat humane mouse trap is the best option for you to take care of your rodent problem. It is safe, secure and inconspicuously designed. Place the trap  in drop ceilings, raised floors and underneath furniture and those unwanted guests would be swiped up by the trap in no time.

Pro Tips On Using the Tin Cat

  • Don’t place the Tin Cat in an open space. Mice rarely like to travel around open spaces. Instead we recommend placing the Tin Car along walls and corners with the opening side closest to the wall.

  • When placing bait inside of the Tin Cat, use a q-tip, toothpick or knife so your scent isn’t picked up by the trap. Mice will be less likely to travel to the trap if they smell human scent.

  • When the mice have been trapped and you are looking to release them somewhere, make sure you do not release them outdoors close to your home but rather take them a sizable distance away from your home into the wild. This will decrease the chances of them finding their way back to your house.

  • Want to make the Tin Cat Trap even more effective?  Use pre-baited Victor Glue Boards which can slide easily into the trap. The stickiness of the glue will render the trap nearly impossible for mice to escape. When it comes time to set them free, use a little olive oil on the glue traps and the mice will be able to wiggle free and be sent packing.


If you’re a lover and not a killer, there’s no need to kill those cute mice with the Tin Cat trap. Order it today to take care of those mice the humane way.

Will the Victor Tin Cat mouse trap catch rats ?
donna t on May 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I do believe the entry is to small for a rat
Can I place the trap in water to kill the mice if needed?
ed j on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you’re cruel and inhumane, then yes. Killing is never “needed”. The point of this trap is that it doesn’t kill the mouse. Just drive a few miles away from home and release the poor thing.
can I empty the mice and reuse the trap myself?
ed j on Mar 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes,I take them to a field n release n use trap again if needed.

BEST ANSWER: Linda, We purchased the same trap, with the clear plastic lid, a few months ago and have caught 15-20 mice in it. Not a single one has chewed through the lid since they are unable to get up to it. The trap has worked very well for us.
Why do Mice escape this trap?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mice should not be able to escape, only if the lid is not secure or for some reason the trap mechanism for entry it not working properly
When checking out online a disclaimer pops up saying it can expose you to a chemical known to cause birth defects. It’s a metal box. How can this be?
Steve S on Apr 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a general warning that will appear on the checkout screen. It will not apply to all of the product we sell like the traps, plastic stations etc.
Will this trap chipmunks?
Whit H on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi,
That is a great question! I don't see why it wouldn't. I think I am going to try to do it. I would place some peanuts and seed in the middle and place it by their holes where they run. Good Luck!
What is the difference between black and black clear?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Black means that the top is made of black metal, and black clear means that the top has a clear plastic window in it. I recommend buying the one with the window, so it is easy to see if a mouse is in the trap and can be released soon after capturing it.
What is the square footage suggested per trap? I want to put them in my attic and I'm wondering how many I'd need.
Denise on May 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As many or as few as you want...hide them under clothing etc...so only the hole is exposed. In an attic with a lot of mice I would put in at least 5 and check them every 2 days. Dead mice in a trap will almost render a trap useless even after cleaning
can this catch rats?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, these traps will not catch rats only intended for mice.
My cats mess with everything, will their paws get stuck?
Cheri on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They should not be able to get stuck in the trap entrance, it is like a see saw.
What are dimensions of trap?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Tin Cat Traps are 10.25 in x 6.25 in x 1.75 in.

Very happy with this!
Works well. My 4 year old granddaughter had this on her lap and watched the two mice inside while we drove to release them. It cracked her up. Be a hero to your grandkids and get one of these.

Well...
Almost immediately, I caught 12 mice in several traps. Hooray! Unfortunately, their replacements (yes, they keep coming) have figured out how to enjoy the bait and then escape back into the comforts of my home. Bah, humbug! Very frustrating ~ and disappointing.

Love the design but haven't had luck yet.
So far the mouse has been too smart for us, he'd rather chew threw things and walk over the top of the trap then go inside.

It sucks. I have 4 in the house and 6 around the house with peanut butter in them. Have caught nothing. Put down 2 regular traps with same bait and That’s how I’m catching them. All the box traps are still down. Total waste of money.

Humane Traps
I would never resort to kill traps, so was very anxious to try the Tin Cat Humane Traps! We were able to catch “some” mice...unfortunately, at other times, we literally watched mice go in, enjoy their snack, & make their way back out! We were shocked! Apparently, the mice in Boulder are super smart! We have since tried the sonic plug-ins, & they have worked like a charm!!

Got the job done with no harm to the mouse
Very satisfied. A mouse got on our converted bus in Vermont, we tried leaving the door open to entice it to leave but after a month it was still inside with lots of hiding places to live. We named it Vermont...long story short, we bought this trap and on the first night caught Vermont while in Maryland. I am very happy we were able to trap the cute mouse and free it with no harm done.

I had practically an infestation of mice that had moved in with my rabbit. A few days with a couple of these traps and I hardly see one now. I once caught 6 or 7 mice at the same time, in the same box. The mice can be seen through the plastic on the top but they were moving too fast to count. The trap is easy to bait, clean, and open/close. I used the have-a-heart traps before this and while they work ok, these traps work better.

Releasing isn't easy
I've always used Havahart traps for mice, but liked the fact that I could get more than one mouse at a time in this trap. That said, I've only caught one mouse in each, three times. It works relatively well in terms of catching them, and the clear top makes it fairly easy to see if there's a mouse in there, but releasing has been a pain! Some mice hide in the entrance chambers and are hard to get out. I wear disposable gloves since I had to pull one out by its tail. I will continue to use these, since I bought four of them, but am going to start using the Havaharts again as well.

I wish mine had a window in the top.....
I had one a few years back and it had a window in the lid so I could see the catch and not have to move or handle the catcher. The lid is very hard to open. It requires a large screwdriver to pry it open. I hope it will loosen up but right now it is a problem for me.

Mice just need to be caught and relocated, not killed. BUY THIS.
I love this humane mouse trap. I had one 20 years ago and took it several places in addition to my home and someone kicked it. I am happy to find a beautiful, totally useful and friendly mouse trap. The mouse steps in one of the two doors, and once inside the box, there is no exit, except to lift the lid. I have had hamsters and gerbils for pets for over thirty years, one or two at one time. I like my little friends and have no need to kill a mouse, but don't want one loose in my kitchen either. Poison a mouse and he'll die and stink inside your walls. Use a traditional or sticky trap and you hurt, not kill the mouse and it suffers. You suffer, not knowing what to do with a wounded but not dead poor mouse. A mouse that has lost its' way and ended up in your house simply needs a snack inside this friendly jail and then you drive it a couple of miles away and let it go. I have caught mice overnight and one took six weeks, even though I knew what room it was in and blocked the space under the door to keep him there. Changing bait is sometimes necessary if you do not catch it quickly. Nuts, peanut butter, cat food, trail mix, cheese...not cookies, you'll attract ants. A slice of apple will give it moisture until you can relocate it. Your mouse will be very nervous inside this jail, so check it daily and move it quickly after trapping. Take the trap, with the mouse on a car ride to a wooded area. It will last for years and you can loan it to friends.
