The Tabcat is a GPS for your cat

Hey cat parents! Ernie here. There’s nothing more frightening than the thought of your cat going missing, right? Even indoor cats can get outside and become lost. We’re sneaky like that. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a GPS system available to help you find your cat should they go missing? Well, now there is. And it’s called the Tabcat Safe & Found.

What is Tabcat Safe & Found?

The Tabcat is a tracking device that helps you find your lost cat. It can track a cat anywhere…in the house, in the yard, in the neighborhood. It’s amazingly accurate…guiding you to within 1 inch of your cat’s location. It’s made by Loc8tor, a British company that specializes in the development of tracking devices.

How does Tabcat Safe & Found work?

The Tabcat consists of a small lightweight tag…weighing only 0.2 ounces…and a handset. You activate the tag and register it to the handset by putting the tag close to the handset and holding down one of the handset’s buttons. Up to 4 tags can be registered to one handset. Once the tag is activated and registered to the handset, you insert it into the waterproof case which comes in 2 different colors…gray and turquoise, both included…and then attach it to your cat’s collar.

To search for your cat, you press the button on the handset that the tag is registered to. The handset will light up and beep. As you get closer to the tag…and your cat…the beeps will increase and the lights on handset will change colors from red to amber to green. When you see 3 green lights, the tag…and your cat…is very close by.

The Tabcat Safe & Found comes with detailed…but easy to understand…instructions on how to set it up and how to locate your cat should they become lost.

I'm wearing the Tabcat with the gray case

We received the Tabcat starter pack that includes 2 tags with batteries, 2 waterproof cases and the handset. Additional tags, cases and replacement batteries can be purchased separately. As you can see, I’m wearing the gray case. It’s so lightweight, I hardly even know it’s there. Fortunately, I haven’t gotten lost…yet…so the mom hasn’t had to put the Tabcat to work. But now she says she’ll be able to find me even when I’m in the house…snoozing in my secret hiding spot. Hmmmm…my secret hiding spot isn’t gonna be a secret anymore, is it?

  1. How cool is this!

  2. looks like a great product. Diego-san escaped once… luckily he was so frightened he stayed right by the window…

  3. OMCs that is amazing!!
    Hugs madi your bfff

  4. Nothing worse than a lost Loulou!

  5. Mom says she gives her two human paws up for this! THANK you.

  6. That’s a great idea! We had a neighbor cat, Dooney, who was an outdoor cat. He got in a huge fight and never came home. He was found hiding in our trees so if he’d had this on, he would’ve been found many, many hours before he was. The thought of us getting loose outside gives our mommy a panic attack. Seriously. Yay for ways to find kitties though!

  7. What a good idea and one we think will be a big hit once word of this product gets out! Maybe some of our neighbors will start keeping better tabs on their outside kitties. We can hope! Very good review!

  8. what a great piece of technology

  9. Looks like a PAWSOME product! Great review, sweet Ernie! Smooches, Roxy & Tigerlino <3

  10. That is such a good idea. I am a little nervous about putting collars on my outside cats and I know that they come with break away gizmos. but those can fail too. But it does sound like a great idea. Thanks for the info.

  11. Now that’s absolutely FABULOUS and clever too!

    Hugs, Teddy

  12. That is the best invention ever. If I was rich I would get one for each cat in case they ever escape.

  13. hmmmmm Mom is going to tell our Aunt about that since cousing Teddy is a master hider and sneaks outside during the summer (the yard is fenced but their house is big and he is hard to find) and they won’t go to bed until they know he is inside and safe.

  14. 400 feet not good enough for me. I suppose I could strap a cellphone to the cat’s back and track it anywhere!

  15. That’s really cool! Just the peace of mind alone a device like that would provide is priceless.

  16. I just read about this very thing. I am looking to learn more about it. Hugs.

  17. That is so cool! Frodo is forever trying to escape so might have to look into that!

  18. This is super awesome! I really want to check it out.

  19. Petcretary sure could use one of those on Minko…he is hiding a lot these dyas…and seems to find new spots each time he is ousted from the newest. Smartypants kitty…

    Pipo is not so hidey most of he time.

    Thanks for telling us about this.

  20. What a great product, Ernie. Granny wished she had this when her cat Gismo run away and never came back 🙁 Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday 🙂 <3

  21. What a great idea ! Purrs

  22. I think Frankie needs one of those. It would also be great for indoor/outdoor cats or when you bring your cats on a trip where losing them would be unthinkable.

  23. That sounds like a great product. It guies you to within 1 inch, that’s amazing!

  24. #1’s cousin in Germany has two black cats and one of them, Pixie, disappeared the first time she went out after being spayed. They eventually found her and decided that she needed to be tracked. They first tried the Tabcat but apparently, it was worse than useless. She said you had to be within 20 feet of the cat for it work. It uses RF (Radio Frequency) technology, not a GPS system. In the end, they got a tracker with a live GPS system and it has worked really well.

  25. The TabCat is pretty cool … we’re still working on our review 🙂

  26. Great review! Those things are getting smaller and smaller and lots more practical too!

  27. There are a few time when Mom would have like this just to be able to find me hiding in the house. But it’s not fair that humans get technology to help find us super-stealthy black kitties hiding in our own home!

  28. That is wonderful. It would be perfect for cats that have to stay outdoors. There is nothing scarier than when they decide to go exploring without reporting in every few hours!

  29. Actually, this might be a good thing for Binga – she can’t hear so well anymore, so she only comes when my human calls her and is in the same room… AND if she claps! So it might save time for when she’s searching for her at dinnertime (yes, sometimes she sleeps through mealtime – her clock’s off too!).

  30. Tabcat sounds great!

  31. Hmmm. After Raja’s little escapade earlier this week, this kind of thing has me thinking.
