How to Participate

There are a variety of different ways to participate in Cat Tracker! Some don’t even require you to own a cat!

If you don’t own a cat…

You can take the personality survey! You’ll be able to skip over the personality questions and jump straight into another section of the survey that focuses on the attitudes people hold about cats. This can provide us with valuable information.

If you own an indoor only cat…

You can take the personality survey! You’ll help us get a better understanding of personality in cats, and you’ll receive a detailed report with your cat’s results within a week.

If you own a cat who is allowed to roam freely outdoors…

  • You can take the personality survey! You’ll help us get a better understanding of personality in cats, and you’ll receive a detailed report with your cat’s results within a week.
  • You can participate in the diet study! This will allow us to see just how many cats are eating things outside what you are feeding them. All you need to do is send us a sample of food and hair.
  • You can track your cat! In just a few steps you’ll be able to uncover the secret life of your cat. A GPS unit on your cat will show you just where your cat is going outside.
More information on how to sign up and participate can be found on the pages for the individual studies to the right. We’d love for you to participate in all three projects, but you decide to participate in the projects you are interested in. Every contribution is helpful!
