Re: Tracking a kitten

Hi David,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There are a number of electronic pet trackers which don't involve inserting anything under the animal's skin. I hope the cat has a chip, but this isn't used for tracking. It is used when an animal is found and the shelter or whoever has the right equipment can read the info on the chip, such as owner's name, phone, etc.
I used a tracker on my cat's collar for quite some time. It wasn't GPS, which are pretty expensive IMHO. The set up I used had a remote with it, and the remote and collar would beep whenever they got to within about 30 feet of each other. Not perfect, but it would help find the cat indoors or out. My guy got to the point where all I had to do was stand on my deck and hit the remote, which triggered the unit on his collar. He would hear the beeping and just come home instead of me having to go find him.
If you'd like to contact me privately I can explain more and perhaps advise you. naboge@...

Subject: [TechTalk] Tracking a kitten
I'm throwing this out to a bunch of lists. I got a friend who just got a therapy kitten, about six weeks old. She has gone missing and when we find her i'd like to make sure that we can track her. The kitten does have a collar with a bell on that's it. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions?
