Re: Tracking a kitten

Have you got more info on the beeping tracker device?  Our cats have "Fitbark" which is basically like a fitbit for pets - tracking how much they're moving about.  They are bluetooth so using a bluetooth identifier on your phone you can get a sense of when it is nearby - however a) it just identifies as an IP address, and b) bluetooth isn't overly precise, only telling you you are within ten metres or so - which if you can pick the signal can at least tell you which end of the house kitty is at, but won't pinpoint her on top of a wardrobe etc, or on the other side of a thick door or wall.

I knew a woman, who fixed two little bells on her kitten's collar. I am sure
that the kitten was not happy about them for a while, but she could keep up
with him that way. She said one bell would not work; it needed to be two.

I'm glad kitty was found, but I hope you do choose something to keep track
of it.  Pam.

Hello,

Thanks everyone for your responses. This kitten just got lost in the house,
it was found, but we'd still like to keep an eye on it.

Thanks.
Dave.
