Although cats have lived alongside humans for a long time, there are many unanswered questions regarding our feline friends. Most importantly, "What does my cat get up to when I'm not around?"

This project seeks to investigate this question by surveying cat caretakers and physically tracking pet cats to determine how, or if, their wandering and foraging patterns overlap with native wildlife. Information from this investigation will also provide valuable information on cat welfare, for example how often pet cats are crossing roads, or coming in proximity to areas of known pest trapping and poisoning?
