The GPS collar for cats

A cat that goes outside should carry GPS

Those of us who have cats that we let go outside, even though we know that they will be having fun, we always have that question as to whether they will be fine or whether they will return. That doubt intensifies as the hours go by and, for whatever reason, they do not return. The minutes can pass as if they were seconds, and the feeling you have is not pleasant at all.

Fortunately, there is a solution: the GPS collar for cats, which will allow us to know at all times where you are.

How It Works

Cats that carry GPS hardly get lost

If your cat has a GPS, it will be practically impossible for you to lose it.

The collar with GPS locator is placed around the neck of our cat, as if it were a conventional collar, leaving about two fingers between the neck and it. Whenever we want to know where it is, we will only have to open an application that we will have downloaded to our mobile To this end, avoiding those uncomfortable sensations that we usually have when he does not return at the time he usually does, being able to have him controlled at all times.

It is highly recommended. It is a necklace that gives our friend much more freedom, being able to go wherever he wants without being behind him - I confess: even if I live in a quiet neighborhood, I am very much on top of my cats, and I always make them come at the same time - with the peace of mind that you know that, with just a call to the collar, you know where it is.

What is the price?

I will not fool you: it is not cheap. The cheapest -and quality- that I have found was worth 49,99 euros, plus the subscription plan that usually costs a minimum of € 70 / year. Without contracting this plan, the GPS will not be activated since it uses mobile coverage (for example, the ones that my cats have work with Orange, Movistar and Vodafone).

The weight depends on the type that is, and can vary between 35 and 50 grams; In addition, they are resistant to water, so that if it rains there would be no problem.

To avoid problems, it is important to compare several of different prices, and take advantage of the offers, which are available 😉. But if you have doubts, don't worry that Next I will tell you which ones are on the market, which one would I choose for cats and why.

  • It weighs only 36 grams.
  • The battery is rechargeable and lasts from 2 to 5 days.
  • Waterproof.
  • It has a great reach (everyone!).
  • Good accuracy, except indoors.

  • The battery is fully charged in 2-3h.


  • It works with a subscription plan, which costs a minimum € 70 / year and a maximum € 85 / year.

How to choose a GPS for cats?

GPS necklace

Choosing one is not easy. There are several things that must be taken into account for the purchase to be really successful. Therefore, below I will tell you what you have to look at:

GPS dimensions

It is perhaps the most important. The smaller and lighter the better. In the case that your cat was large (Maine Coon type) you could take whatever you want, but if for example it weighs 4kg, the device should not exceed 50 grams.

Battery duration

How long is your cat out? At least, the battery will last two days, since you never know what can happen and you have to have time to locate it. Also think that the more you use it, that is, the more times you want to check where it is on your mobile, the more battery you will use and the less it will last.

With or without SIM?

It depends:

  • With SIM: They tend to have a greater range and more functions (virtual fence, real-time monitoring, etc.), but their price is usually higher.
  • No sim: they are generally cheaper, but for some to be useful they need to be scanned by a smart phone so that, in this way, the owner of the animal can be contacted.

IOS and Android compatibility

If you are going to buy a GPS that works with SIM, you should make sure it is compatible with the type of phone you have, since otherwise it won't do you any good 🙂.

Signal range

Although cats do not usually move more than 400-500 meters from home (even if they are neutered, it is normal that they do not go more than a street away), it is recommended that the device to buy has a long range, just in case.

Get your peace of mind by buying a GPS for your cat

I hope that from now on it will be easier for you to choose a GPS for your cat. So both you and your little one can breathe easy when he goes for a walk.
