safer trap setting

I have an ongoing problem with rats eating my potted bulbs, especially  
ones in hoophouses and the greenhouse.  I caught #5 last night.

I worry that my cat could be injured by  traps, but I have just  
thought of a way to diminish the risk.

I bought a stack of large wire frames meant for making moss-lined  
hanging baskets.  I use them to plop on top of flowering trilliums,  
erythroniums, tulips, and so on, that would otherwise be eaten by deer.

Now I am using them over the rat traps.
