Does your cat wander off and ignore your calls?
Cat Tailer is an innovative pet tracking device designed specifically for cats.

Cat Tailer is not GPS. It uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology with a long 328 foot range (100 meters) to assist you in finding your pet within your yard or neighborhood.
Note: Maximum useable range will vary depending on the local environment.

Cat Tailer is a simple device you attach to your cat's collar and use the companion smartphone application to find your cat when needed.

Small and light (just like cats!), Cat Tailer is water proof, unobtrusive and sturdy enough to keep up with your pet’s rambunctious nature. It features a user replaceable battery that lasts 6 months.

Works as others describe. My cat roams the neighborhood and it has helped locate him. Range can be an issue though depending on obstructions and if the cat is facing you or not. Also, a distant neighbor brought him into their house and they were able to contact Cat Tailers and put them in touch with us. A nice bonus, but I wouldn't expect this as a regular service.

Was OK until 2.1.7 update. Now it's a pile of garbage. Cats 6 feet from me, bounces to 211, then 30, then out of range. Luckily I had another phone with version 2.1.3 and it worked ok again. I tried the app on 4 different devices, 2 old version and 2 the latest. "Enhancements for ranging data" did not work. **** Follow up, these guys are pretty awesome. Reached out and worked with me personally to troubleshoot and recognize the issue. Worked fast to push out an update! ****

Ben, version 2.1.8 of our app which fixes the problem with version 2.1.7 went live on the Google Play Store today. You can use the PlayStore app to update the Cat Tailer application. Please contact us at: if you still have problems with the app.

This device is really perfect for me and my cat. We live at 9,000 feet on a mountain and cell service is in and out. Bluetooth won't tell me exactly where he is like gps, but Bluetooth is always available. Cat Tailer alerts me when he goes out of range and when he comes back. CT has saved my cat MANY times from nocturnal predators by helping me locate him! It takes a bit of time sometimes, but I walk to different locations and the closer my cat gets, the faster the device beeps. Love it!
