Spring is on it's way and cats will be roaming
If the cat has a ear clipped, that means it is spayed/neutered. There are Trap Neuter Release programs out there in other counties. This means the fixed feral cat may have been released near where it was trapped if there is shelter available and the cat is vaccinated.
REMINDER:: Do not feed cats that show up on your property. Locking a feral cat in a 2x2 live trap is not humane or helping the cat.
