The hardest thing about catching cats is finding where they frequent. You've got that covered.
Keeping your traps empty of other critters is important if you're targeting specifically cats.

A cat can't resist a big messy dirt hole, but either can most other critters. The one thing you can do to deter other critters is to guide the cats foot heavily with sticks or stones. I mean you can put a square of flat sticks right outside the jaws, even let the pan of the trap exposed.....and a cat will willingly step there. Most other critters will not.
Using lures that are intentionally attractive to cats can help keep other animals out as well.
