GPS Satellite Technology Tracking Cats
Cute balls of fur by day and killing machines by night. Your pet cat is responsible for deaths of millions of small wild animals each year according to University of Reading research. Well ok, not just your cute kitty, but the combined efforts of domestic cats in Britain.
With aid of Catnav the researchers hope to follow the cats by GPS to be able access the area each cat covers and the number of small animals endangered.
They are not the first to track cats with satellite technology. Alex Lee attached one matchbox sized tracker to his cat and you can see an image imposed on Google maps of where this wandering cat went in the course of a day.
Mr Lee was surprised at just how far the cat strayed from home. You might be equally surprised at just what your cute little kitty gets up to while you sleep!
