Is your furry friend always running off under the cloak of darkness? Reckon the prized puss is dealing dodgy catnip to unsavoury alley-cats? Don your deerstalker, Sherlock – there’s sleuthing to be done.
The G-Paws cat-tracker has just undergone a revamp, bringing better hardware, more features, and a sure-fire way for you to find out if your cat’s picking up extra meals in your neighbour’s back garden.
The GPS collar-tracker records where your favourite feline is at any given time, and uploads its journeys to an easy-to-digest web interface.
The latest model has been ‘re-engineered’ to be fully IPx7 waterproof, whilst still packing a built-in motion sensor to ensure G-Paws only tracks your moggy when it’s moving – catnaps, begone.
It weighs just 15g, and is good for a constant eight hours of recording.
The original G-Paws launched just over a year ago, and now boasts a database of upwards of 10,000 pets.
The G-Paws team says it’s updated the website and added ‘significant functionality’ thanks to user feedback.
There’s now an easy-to-navigate diary, and a bulletin board-style layout. Alerts have also been added to ping you when your cat is hanging out with a fellow G-Paws feline.
The new tech will show off your little lion's favourite hang outs, as well as letting you compare speeds and distance stats with its prowling pals.
Dave Evans, founder of G-Paws said: “We were one of the first to market but we’re not standing still.”
“The new kit is awesome and we’ve had great fun developing it. No one can really claim to own a pet, we merely look out for them and G-Paws will help to do that,” said Evans.
“But this is just the beginning. We have a host of other really cool kit in development so watch this space.”
If you’re keen to get an inside look into the secret life of tiddles, you can buy your own tracker from the G-Paws website for £49.95.
