About the Cat Tracker Project
Your cat has a secret life…
Cats are mysterious, dangerous and far more unpredictable than one might expect from an animal that is, theoretically, domesticated. Some of the mysteries of cats relate to where they go and what they do; this is especially true of cats that go outdoors. We open our doors. They leave. Just where they go, we can’t be sure. Or rather we couldn’t be sure, until now. With your help, we’re investigating the movement of domesticated cats across the landscape. We want to know: Where do they go? What are they eating? Why do they do what they do?Learn more about the project
Here are a few cats that participated in Cat Tracker. Visit our Cat Tracks section to view our collection of tracked cats.
