The Saturday Special featuring TabCat Cat Tracker

Welcome to another edition of

Caturday greetings wunderpurr furriends

Today we have one of our *sponsored posts* to share with mew.  The fabulous peeps from the company:

asked us if we'd like to field test one of their new tracking devices, and as most of mew know we love new tech here and so of course we said yes.

We were sent the unit way back in April, and so mew maybe wundering why we're only just reviewing in it November, our answer is simple, we wanted to really give this unit a really decent trial period.  So we nominated Parsley who is our Resident Techie and also our Expert-Over-The-Fence and Missing-Down-The-Field-Fur-Hours to be the guineapig.

So what was in the box, we hear mew ask?

Upon opening the box we were greeted with the destruction manual.

Underneath was the tracking unit, plus 2 x trackers with covers.

And finally, removing the tab in the battery compartment, and placing the collar unit in its cover.

*    *    *

This is quite an ingenious piece of kit, mew'll hear in the video coming up in just a moment, that when the P.A. zero's in on Parlsey the hand unit beeps like crazy, and the collar unit beeps too, so don't furget to turn up the volume.

As mew can see the unit isn't furry big at all and we think that Parsley looks rather fetching in that nice aqua shade.

So collar on, the P.A. gave him a 30 minute head-start to go and hide - which is fair game fur hide and seek! MOL  

And then went into the garden to search.  She pushed button 4 on the hand unit and off she went.

What we like about TabCat:

The unit is furry light
Fits easily onto any collar
A range of 122M or 400ft
It comes with a protective cover which is splash-proof
4 collar units can be assigned to one hand unit
Each of the collar units makes a slightly different beep so if mew have more than one kitty they'll each have their own unique sound. 

Mew can also train your kitty to come home, by pressing the button on the hand unit which is assigned to the collar unit.  The collar unit will beep if in range and this is how the P.A. found Parsley so quickly, he was 'prompted' to return by the collar unit.

The whole system is rather intuitive, in other wurds, it's easy: 

To set up
To learn
To oppurrate

The battery life is good too, and both units use the furry easily obtainable:

 CR2032 batteries ~ one in each unit

It's a one off purrchase price, so no monthly subscription service to drain your coffers.

In fact we can't think of  anything that we don't like about the system.

*    *    *

Our closing thoughts:

We think fur a one off price fur the system we tried at £69.99 is amazing fur the device mew get.

The four unit system costs £99.99 which is fantastic value and what's even better is mew can buy additional single tags fur £19.99 each should mew need to.

So, if mew want a cost effective way to keep tabs on your kitty, then we don't think mew'll get better than this. It's Brilliant!

  1. The way that device beeped, it was kind of like a kitty Geiger counter!

  2. Mommy wants this us CATS vote NO, you do realize she would be able to track us down and take us to the vet, even if we makes ourselves very small and hide under youngest boys bed with all his junk.

    1. Hi all at ATCAD, MOL yep this is true, but we only wear collars when we go outside, so we still can hide indoors without detection! MOL XOX

  3. That was a grr-eat review! I just learned about that purr-duct recently, too. I'm hoping me one of my staff can try one out at some point. Oh yes, that tag color is very lovely against Parsley's fur! Did the beepies bother your ears at all? It seems like a better option than "GPS" Mom thinks. Hugs!

    1. Hiya Valentine, oh mew should defo get one dude, best thing on the market since cats! No the beeping was fine, not too loud, but loud enough fur cloth-eared peeps to hear! MOL XOX

  4. Thanks for the demonstration, Parsley! TabCat seems like a great tracking device!

  5. This would be perfect for our Odin. Is it available in the U.S.?

    1. Hi Layla, yes it is... I found this link:
      It would be purrfect fur Odin, parl;sey loves his and now Fudge is being trained too! XOX

  6. We could have used one of those for Minko he was such a good hider, even inside the house!
