Rinpoche’s Review of the GPS Cat Tracker
Tonight Daddi put a new and rather strange collar around my neck before I headed out on my usual evening exploration of the outside. It was pretty but harder than my normal collar.
“What’s with the new collar, Daddi?”
“It’s a special collar with a GPS tracker so that I can see where you go at night and what you get up to.”
“I’m not sure I want to wear a tractor, and besides, the other cats might laugh at me.”
Daddi explained that it wasn’t a tractor and that I should go out as I normally did. But I was too shy about wearing something that felt so bulky and felt in a rather defiant mood as I sat by the backdoor refusing to leave. Instead I spent around 90 minutes unsuccessfully clawing at the tractor collar so that Daddi would know that I didn’t want it on. It made no difference.
By the time Daddi went up to his oversized bed up the steps, I decided that I needed to venture outside and do my business. The evening was fairly typical of a Thursday night. I saw Barry the Tabby on the wall down by the park, I found a mouse in a bin, and I roamed my usual gardens, never coming down from the fence tops unless something really special caught my attention. After finding a nice gravel driveway to do my business and engaging in a slight altercation with a fox, I ran back home when it began to get lighter, making sure I was at full speed when passing Smudge’s gate because he always barks when he detects me. Luckily no one noticed my collar.
When I arrived home, I climbed immediately into my bed (that isn’t oversized) just as Daddi appeared in the kitchen. He said good morning and asked me the usual questions about where I had been, whom I had seen and what I’d been doing.
“Didn’t you see me on the tractor Daddi?” I asked.
“No! I didn’t realise you’d gone outside in the end? When I went to bed you were refusing to leave, so I simply went to sleep. I’m not sure I want to become nocturnal just to watch where you roam anyway.”
I curled up ready to enjoy my early morning snooze, safe in the knowledge that Daddi would probably not bother to put the tractor on me again.
Give it a go.

Few sites review pet trackers, but the Whistle 3 is the recipient of PCMag’s Editors’ Choice designation for its “strong combination of performance and price,” with the publication citing long battery life and great hardware.
