Men in Black of Cats?

It seems we are on the right track about how to find out what has been happening to the multitudes of cats that go missing in hot spots around the globe. 

In the latest spate of "missing felines who seem to have gone astray without trace" a UK vet, Paul Thomas, director of Longridge Vets in Lancashire UK, advises owners to ensure their cats have a collar with ID and are chipped.

He then said it was possible to get a GPS (Global Positioning System) tracking collar costing around £100.

Recently a local cat owner had contacted the police after her cat bolted back into her home and she noted a black car and two men acting suspiciously nearby. Members of the public have since been told to be on guard and report anything suspicious to the police.

Paul said: “The numbers seem extremely high – it’s not like they have been hit by cars or anything like that. It’s cats of all ages. There doesn’t seem to be any trail, they just vanish. 

Obtaining a GPS tracking collar for your cat is exactly what we have been advising cat owners to do. You can read about that here:

There are many GPS tracking devices for pets available. It is best to talk to your local vet for his advice. Or visit http://pawtrack.com and decide if this might suit your cat.
