You hear that cat flap go in the morning and you know that your beloved feline has (by some miracle) returned safe and sound from one of their debauched midnight adventures. Well now you can follow all the mad movements of your pets with the G-Paws Pet GPS Tracker.
Prevent that over-friendly and possessive family from feeding and conditioning your cat into loving them more than you.
Expose that lazy dog-walker who charges an extortionate amount of money for their lacklustre services.
Applaud the efforts your dog went through to catch and bring you that poor deceased crow.
Witness the harrowing path of destruction your escaped alligator has left in its wake.
And on a more serious note, get to know their hangouts so that when they do eventually run off you'll know where they're headed. They love you really, they know not what they do.
Robust and fully weatherproof, this miniature GPS tracker easily clips on to your pet's collar and records its position every 5 seconds for up to 8 hours. Simply plug it into your computer via USB and amuse/horrify yourself and others with the eye-opening results. You can even view and share your pets activities using Google Maps.
The cold hard data will at last allow you to look past their dewy-eyed innocence – just who else could have run around the muddy garden and left paw prints all over your lovely clean home?
We recommend that you initially charge the unit for at least 10 hours. Subsequent charges will take around 4 hours
You can't actually track your pet's whereabouts live, just view where they've been (if and when they return)

We've been using this device for about 3 weeks now, and it's been an eye-opener for us as to where our cat goes at night! We had no idea how many gardens he traversed and hedgeways he hunted along.
Pros: It's really simple to use. Just upload the file from the unit after every adventure.
Cons: The battery life isn't great. The website claims it lasts 8hrs, but ours lasts about 4hrs maximum. Also the GPS sometimes doesn't pick him up for ages.
Conclusion - expensive, but worth if if you want to know where your cat goes! I'd suggest you pass/rent it around to your friends/family after a few weeks when you've got bored of it. Roy M, York - 26th January 2014
I got this toy knowing its a bit of a gimmick after watching the secret life of a cat
I was quite excited to see where our cat goes all day! The device didn't seem to trouble our cats, and once you cat brings back the device, You have to upload the information to a website, powered by google maps and is perfectly functional. The GPS sadly isn't overly accurate. The information does warn that if you cat is under a car or hiding the GPS location can wander. Sadly this can be 50m or so, and the end results we had were all over the place. Darran, Liverpool - 13th January 2014
It's been great to find out where my moggy mooches!
We thought they where going in an entirely different direction than it turned out it's been fascinating to see!
What's even better is that now we know where they're going we know more or less the best places to look if they ever went missing.
One of my favourite parts has been seeing the GPS track them as they're hunting... round and around and around and around they go!!! Adam White, Warwick - 7th January 2014
Well have just got it all sorted, and have put tracker on my cats collar.
So will let you know when she comes back in and then I can download where she has been. Carol, Lincoln. - 15th December 2013
