Cradle Coast Cat Tracker

Have you always wondered where your cat goes when you see them leaving the house in the morning? At least 70% of cat owners allow their cat to roam away from their property, but do we really know where these cats go once we open the door? The Cradle Coast Cat Tracker Project would like to unravel the mystery. We would like to follow your cat using a GPS tracker and find out where your feline friend goes when they leave the protection of your home. Do they visit lots of other properties or do they cross any busy roads? Aren’t you curious to find out?
