Please - she's a Savannah, did you ever question her ability to do the impossible?

BTW, did you ever actually test out the tracker? I thought you were going to give us a review once you had it on her...

Yes, I did that a long time ago... I will do another one featuring her in it...

No, I mean have you tested it on her, with her moving, hiding, etc. Have you tested the range?

I went out with it today to test the range, and was able to get an approximate direction (within a 45 deg arc) at 262 feet through an obstruction (A House), and clear view line of sight 350 feet. At 150 feet I was able to get a spot don direction to the location, and within 50 feet I could tell if it was above or below me in height.

Over all works great, however, I find that I use it more to find the collar that she has removed. I am not sure what the fix for that is, as a non-breakaway collar she could hang herself... In the house, I can not only tell in which room she is in, but if she is on the floor counter or where ever. The unit works great as long as I can keep her wearing it and she takes it off 2 or 3 times a week.

Harnesses and walking jackets are rarely available with a breakaway feature. I've wondered how safe that is. Is a cat entangled in a harness much less likely to strangle herself than if using a non-breakaway collar?

Is it asking for trouble to leave a cat in harness even for a short time unsupervised?
