    Yes but they're very expensive. Type pet collar gps tracking into google and tons of them come up.

    I have one on my live catch 'cat trap'...and I can usually find 'em. Then they get a one-way 25 mile free vacation.
    (That's only if they keep digging up, pooping in our flower beds, and attacking other animals in our sub {these are feral cats I speak of...}.)

    heh...you could duck-tape one of those $99 iphones to it ;-p. The iphone has gps, and you can track it with another iphone.

    For that matter, duct tape a regular cordless phone handset to the cat and when you want to find fluffy, just hit the "find handset button" on the base and follow the beeping.

    This is about the only option I can find...Not GPS, but should work.

    Cat Tracking Collars

    It seems as if we are still a little ways away from getting GPS tech into something light enough for a cat to tolerate.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    I've seen some sort of device that you put on a child (bracelet or necklace?), and the parent has a handheld tracking device that I suppose "lights up" when pointed at the direction the child is in? It might have a range of 200-300 feet? Seemed like it was pretty cheap? I can't remember where I saw the ad, maybe in an in-flight magazine?
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
