The other two cats are still around. We put a cat feeder outside so they'd at least have a place to come for food regularly, but they have become more and more distant. Neither Paul nor I can catch either one of them now. I have never had this happen before, with friendly, domesticated cats. There is something about this hunter-player that has gotten to them. I have thought of a few possible actions:
Borrow a trap and capture them that way.
Send little Temp kitty away for a week or so.
Of the two, the second seems better, yet I do not know what I would do with the kitty. A better solution would be to find a different home for him. I adore the little guy but he does adjust to new environments easily so could be very happy elsewhere. I am seriously considering how to go about this - and thinking that a home with a small dog would be just the ticket. He loved playing with Floyd. They were instant friends. Maybe he thinks he is a dog, too, and so do the other cats.
