Hi I really want to buy a GPS locator with a good long range to track my cat who has started not to come in at night. He used to be good as gold coming in at 8pm. Putting a do not red me tag hasn't helped.
So anyone know the best to buy? I'd like to be able to locate him on a map, if this exists and is reliable.
Yep he's neutered. Last time he went missing it was from 7am til the following evening. I'm convinced someone has taken a liking to him and is feeding him. If I knew where he is going, I could go and talk to them
It's useful isn't it. Am thinking of the Weecatt which has the facility for you to ring your cat and for them to talk back
How do you find Loc8tor, those who use it? The blurb says it only works for a few hundred feet 'in plain sight', whereas I want something that will tell me whether BBK has buggered off through three of the neighbours gardens and over their garage roof into the vicinity of the road out front.
Ideally I want a version of those shopping trolley things which will bring him to a dead half if he exits the specified area. Anyone invented those yet?
The loc8tor is a bit like a game of "hot and cold"... I have tracked down a missing cat using it though. It beeps faster when you are near the cat and slows down when you are further away... I found my cat when he was a few blocks away and in a neighbours garden. GPS would be probably a lot better, and I did originally want GPS but I couldn't find anything that was small enough and I didn't want to weigh his neck down too much with technology!
I tried a few and gave up on them. They kept losing the collars and the GPS wasn't accurate enough to find them. Plus v embarrassing to keep asking strangers if I could search their gardens (lots of crawling under bushes).
I hated tabcat when I first got it because it was fiddly to put the batteries in but I love it now. My girl doesn't go to far but as the weathers getting better I imagine she will be out longer. I have thick walls and it picks up from the living room to the back of the wardrobe next door. I do get paranoid that it will run out of batteries when I need it the most though.
