Here’s how you can participate in Cat Tracker!

  1. Register by completing a participant questionnaire for each individual cat you want to track and sign the Informed Consent form.
  2. Make a GPS harness OR Obtain a GPS harness (if local to Raleigh/Durham, Long Island, NY, Fairfield County, CT or Westchester County, NY)
  3. Set cat loose for 5 days with the GPS harness safely affixed to your cat. After 5 days, leave harness on your cat, but remove GPS unit and follow provided instructions for downloading and uploading data. Recharge GPS unit and re-program it for a second 5-day tracking period or simply swap out first GPS unit with second unit provided by Cat Tracker.
  4. Download and then upload data from GPS (if DIY), OR Return harness and GPS unit if local to Raleigh/Durham, Long Island, NY, Fairfield County, CT or Westchester County, NY. Note to Long Island participants: At this time the @Trip software isn’t supported by Mac OS and thus a partitioned Mac or Windows OS is needed to program the tracker units for participants in the Long Island Loaner Program.

Finally: Learn the secret life of your cat!
