Yes! All Tractive GPS trackers can be worn comfortably by cats, dogs and other animals. We are pet lovers ourselves and our trackers are designed to help ensure the safety and well-being of your canine and feline friends.
Not only can you ensure that your cat will be located with the help of the Tractive GPS, but you can also have fun viewing where they have been while exploring the local neighborhood or countryside.
Our latest model for cats weighs 35g and measures 71 x 28 x 17mm (2.8 x 1.1 x 0.6 in). We recommend that your cat weighs at least 4kg (8.8lb) so that they can wear any of our trackers comfortably. Smaller cats may also be able to wear the device and you can see the tracker in action on pets of all shapes and sizes using the hashtag #Tractive on Instagram! With our 30-day refund policy, you can give the tracker a try and see if your feline friend finds it comfortable to wear. If that’s not the case, simply return the tracker to us within 30 days of purchase for a full refund.
How can I attach the tracker to my cat's collar?
If you are using our latest model, you can easily attach the tracker to your pet’s collar by threading the collar through the loops of the rubber attachment that comes with the tracker. The tracker can be attached to collars up to 2cm wide.
We recommend using a collar with a breakaway safety mechanism so that the collar detaches from your cat if they get caught or stuck while climbing, thereby reducing the risk of injury. One example is the Rogz collar, which features a weight-adjustable breakaway safety mechanism and is made from reflective (and snag-free) nylon, making your cat easy to spot at night. Use the red slider on the Rogz collar to adjust the force required for the collar to detach from your cat.
We no longer produce our previous cat tracker (the IKATI model shown on this page and handsomely modelled below), but you may be able to purchase it from a retailer should you wish to do so (note: only available via certain European retailers). This tracker comes with a blue attachment clip that you can use to attach the tracker to any collar of your choice up to 2.8cm wide. It also comes with the HUNTER® collar, which also features a breakaway mechanism; however, this mechanism is not weight adjustable on the HUNTER® collar. Please note that the HUNTER® collar is only compatible with the IKATI model.
If you would like to use a different tracker model, please read this article to learn how to attach that model to your pet’s collar. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Tractive Customer Happiness Team.
What other benefits does the Tractive GPS tracker offer?
In addition to the Default & LIVE tracking modes, which help you follow your furry friend’s every step, you can set an Activity goal for your pet and view how active they are throughout the day! You can easily see when they do most of their exploring and when they prefer to take things easy, and can also have fun staying active with your pet in a friendly competition with other pet parents in your community via the Leaderboards!
Are there any other safety matters I should keep in mind?
Please remove the tracker and collar before using any liquid flea treatments on your cat, as these may damage your tracker and its accessories. Please also allow 24 hours after applying the treatment before you reattach the device.
What do other cat parents say about the Tractive GPS tracker?
Check out these real Amazon reviews from Tractive customers and proud cat parents:
- "I have this on my large (22lbs) cat and it works excellent! I can always see where he is. I get notified when the battery is low and when he goes out of the area I have set on the app. I have had absolutely no problems with it! This is a well built product! Also it has never came off the collar clip used to secure it. Well done!!"
- "We bought the Tractive to use for our indoor cat. She was meowing FOR MONTHS....wanting to be let outside. Buying the Tractive has given us our sanity back. She wears a small harness and it is attached to her harness. I know where her favorite spot is and can find her within seconds."
- "I am using this product on a 3.5kg cat. It is an excellent product for any dog/cat owner for complete peace of mind. The product does exactly what it says and more..."
