An illustrative story.
A few years ago I put in a beaver drumstick on an old road just off the hwy. I could look at it every time I went to town. Well I checked it intermittently until it was literally dripping off the bone and gave up. About two weeks go by and I am driving by and have time to kill so I look at it This thing had been out for like two months and I'll be darned a cat had ate it. Set a trap and nothing but I left it in and two weeks more I get a big tom.
I don't normally wait that long. With cats it seems you can't tell. They break the rules.

i am fairly new to trapping but I try to be very patient.
I've had several cats show up around the 30 day mark and sometimes even longer. Who knows what will stroll through during breeding season  :dunno:
