Any of my close friends will tell you that my cat Zara has a habit of disappearing (and at the worst possible times too!) so when Tabcat contacted me to review their cat tracker*, how could I say no?
The user guide was really easy to follow and setting up the tracking device was a breeze. The device came with two trackers but you can have up to four trackers in use at the same time which is perfect for people having more than one moggy. The box also contained two splash proof covers for the trackers to protect them from the elements.
I decided to use try both covers on Zara's tracker ye know, depending on her style that day... (ha!) and as you can see she didn't give two hoots about wearing it. The tracker is really light weight so your cat will barely notice it's there.
Another great function to this device is it can train you cat to come home! When hitting the locate button on the device, it makes the cat tag beep. The best way to train your cat to know this sound means home time, is to play the beep before you give your cat food, thus associating the noise with food so they should come running. This is something I am still working on with Zara, as initially the beeping freaked her out but she is slowly getting used to the sound and associating it with dinner time!
I'm so pleased we have Tabcat in our household now. We don't have a cat flap in our current home so we have to rely on hearing the cat meow at the door or leaving it open for her which isn't really an option in the depths of winter! Knowing we can easily find her with Tabcat really puts me at ease and thankfully since she has been wearing it we've only had one disappearing act!
At the end of the day, I love to curl up with Zara to give her a bit of fuss knowing that she's safe and found.
Have you tried Tabcat for your kitty?
