Customer Question

Hello. My very blind and fearless cat escaped my house, crossed a creek and was found in another neighborhood 1.5 miles away a week later!!
I am looking for a device that he would wear on a collar or harness that is linked to a smart phone and gives you a map to tell you where your cat is.. There are a number of them.
Do you recommend any? Cost not an issues unless price is ridiculous. Is it safe for him to wear a collar with a device? Choking risks? Neck problems? Anything else? Thanks and he is a rescue cat. And a genius. Is smarter than me. Barb

Bless you for rescuing!

Since collars can catch on things and present a choking hazard, I suggest attaching it to a harness.
