Perfect for our four legged friends that love to practice their disappearing acts, these wonderful devices allow owners to keep track of their cats without having to watch them every second of every day. These can be a huge relief for the millions of cat owners that do not have the luxury of working at home.
If you enjoy wildlife and taking walks in the woods with your animals, this unit can be a breath of fresh air. Feel free to let your cats off of their leashes to see what their noses can find. If they don’t come back when you call, just track their signal to find them!
Technology has advanced to the point where a tracking unit is small enough to fit on a cat collar. At this rate, these things will be so small and accessible that everyone animal will have one. For right now though, just be happy that you no longer have to watch your cat every minute of every day.
It is funny how animals can seem so like people sometimes, yet so different others. Is it not great when they get so excited to see you, even if you have only left the room for a couple of minutes? On the other hand, it is really annoying when they wake you up in the middle of the night to feed them, especially when they were just fed.
These units can also help you find your pet if they do get out. Since they are so secure, it is unlikely they will be able to pull out of their collar. Track the signal to the area your pet is walking, or to a local animal shelter, if they got picked up. It is always a good idea to have the number to your local animal shelter handy so that you may notify them of your missing animal. That way, they can call you if they are found.
Pairing this technology with a microchip implant will virtually guarantee you will always know where your pet is. Should they ever get out, the combination will be able to make your information available to wherever they end up.
Just like any other piece of technology, there are many different options of cat GPS units available. You can get the cheaper, starter level, and work your way up to the platinum level, break the bank version, and everything in between. No matter how fat or skinny your wallet, there is a unit available in your price range. Most of them include a wall charger so that you may charge the unit after about half a days use, better than most cell phones!
