Read about GPS and cat cam technologyBBC Internet Blog: Developing the cat cams Why do cats purr? Notes: The 10 cats above are a selection of 50 studied in the Surrey Hills over a number of weeks. Read more about the science and technology behind the study from Alan Wilson of the Royal Veterinary College. Researchers in the US copy bird and bat wings to build a drone that can rebound and recover from mid-air collisions.

John Bradshaw, an expert in human-animal interactions at Bristol University, who led the study alongside Sarah Ellis, a cat behaviorist at University of Lincoln’s Life Sciences department.Each cat was fitted with a  specially-designed collar which collected GPS data on their location and level  of activity.

Armed with GPS tracking devices and micro-cameras, a team from BBC Two's Horizon programme in collaboration with the Royal Veterinary College set off to a Surrey village to find out.
The scientists could then remove the collars  and plug them into a central  computer installed at their temporary headquarters  in Shamley Green’s  village hall. All equipment was checked by animal welfare experts to ensure it was the right size and weight for cats to wear safely. If the GPS system showed interesting movement  patterns,  the cat in question would be fitted with a ‘cat cam’ – a tiny  surveillance camera designed by specialists at the BBC’s research and  development centre – which dangled from their neck as they went about  their  business.
The maps of the routes of the 10 cats above are not all from the same 24-hour period or necessarily from the same day the cat cam footage was recorded. GPS tracking data was filtered to discard obvious false readings, however some smaller inaccuracies may remain. Freida has multiple health issues, including incredibly brittle bones, ongoing anemia, paper-thin skin, tiny size, and liver and gallbladder abnormalities.

Forgotten Felines is sending Freida’s records to a geneticist at Tufts University in hopes of getting some answers as to the cause of her health issues.
Mia, well… even though she has the ability to run an agility course, there is NO WAY so would ever agree to it!! Reply Leave a comment Cancel commentFirst time visitors: please read our Comment Guidelines.
