Hi all,
I have been lurking a while, and finally decided I was ready to get my first Bengal for myself. I finally decided to get an awesome 2 year old! I love him already, but he has shown the ability to be quite adventurous which has me a bit worried.
I am leaning towards getting one of theses device so I am not as paranoid . That little device is about the size of a quarter so it doesn't seem like it should bother him much. As a pet owner, I can't see why it wouldn't be a good idea to use one.

Does anyone think wearing one will cause any problems?

-thanks in advance!

I've also looked at using tracking devices for my boys. However they are always losing their collars so I've decided against it so far. They wear quick release collars which clearly work really well! I know I should be able to track the collars with a tracking device but I think my neighbours would soon get fed up with me trying to find them...!

I don't think a tracking device would cause any extra problems, but collars themselves of course pose a danger to the cat wearing them.

Welp, I did end up buying one and it got here today. So far it seems to work very well, and it is cool to see the movement on the phone. I made sure to use a breakaway collar.

I'd love to get a tracker, but to me they need to get the size way down. Those things are BIG! Maybe on a huge dog it wouldn't matter, but I would feel awful tethering my cat to such a large object on their neck.

Since my cat is inside (or outside in a harness and leash), I don't really have to worry. I'd probably have the phone surgically attached so I could monitor his every move! Collars do come off and all you'll find is the device and no cat! And you may not really want to know how far your kitty travels. They are making these things much smaller and now they have one that is pretty small. It's made for other items, but I think it could be used for a pet. Unfortunately, the device doesn't guarantee your cat's safety outdoors.
