That looks cool. What kind of batteries? Link?


here it is : https://www.buysend.com/product/29265/r ... djustable/

the battery is a flat round one - a bit bigger one than in Locator. ( sorry thats how much i know about batteries. I can look up at the model if you want ). I am not sure whether this type of batteries is rechargeable though.

The collar itself not heavy at all and Clive as a bigger boy is totally fine with it.
Indiya is a little and petite girl (16 months old) - the collar might be a bit wide for her, as she looks uncomfortable at a times.
it could be also be to a fact that they have never wore any collars ever up to now. Still early days for them with collars.
But I am looking to modify her collar to make it less wide and perhaps a bit shorter

Overall - very positive feedback. We have been using them during evening and night hours and it made my life so much easier when i know where they are .

Update

ok i have an update on locators vs flashing collars.

So i have been using Locators now during the day for the past month or so - OMG , I feel like I am blind without it now!
I learnt (or adapted) to it to know when locator tells me they are in the house or outside as well
So it has been working really great so far.

At pitch black night time I still rely on flashing collars though. Flashing collars are great in the dark. and battery seems last ages ! Our collars began to wear out a bit but the battery still going strong!

have to do some pictures - i promise once i get a minute

Thanks for the update!

I seriously think of you everytime I use mine and say to myself "how could she hate it?". It took me time to get use to it and pan slowly especially around buildings. If I had a strong signal on either side of a house but not directly at it, that means he's right behind the house but the house is blocking the signal.

I've also been feeding him lately when I use the locator to find him. He now starts looking for me when his collar starts beeping and comes to the sound of the the unit in my hand.

i also give them treats when using locator. Mine are also trained to verbal command as well.
I am very pleased now with the result - feel so much safer now!! Thanks for your recommendation even though i got frustrated with it at first !

A bit more update on proximity feature.
So we have learnt how to use it and it works bloody well!! Basically it tells me when any of them out of the range and a loud alarm comes on. We have arranged it that way that alarm comes on when any if them go around corner of the house or inside the house. Which is what I needed in the first place !! To sum up : a little bit patience and some male tech touch needed and that thing can do amazing things!!! So happy with my purchase now!! Totally worth it!

Good to hear! I wish I got the one with proximity and regular batteries not button cells.
Here's a picture of Pouncey showing it off.

The problem is physical size and cost. The cost part is also a monthly fee and your cat would need to have a cellular signal. Besides why would you care about movement or heartbeat. I'd want to find my cat regardless. Now if health is the reason they make systems for dogs that do that over WiFi while you're away. It's not to find your dog and too big for a cat.

try using trackimo's gps tracking device..i've attached the device with my persian cat..and it has no weight issue since the device is weighing 1.4 ounces, plus the battery last long up to 80-90hours. but still you can search for another GPS device that suits you best :)

Extremely old topic. Now they have Pod Trackers. The key is that the cat needs to enjoy wearing a collar. My outdoor cat loses them. After the third one, I've given up! He will scratch at them until he draws blood around his neck to get one off. Ironically, I've found many break away collars on our walks, but never one that belonged to our outdoor cat. So it is common that many cats don't like wearing a collar.
