Tabcat Cat Tracker Features
2 x Lightweight homing tags
(Now with smaller tag!)
NEW & IMPROVED – Longer Range, Smaller Tags. NO MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION
Tabcat’s NO.1 BESTSELLING Cat Tracking Device
Our RF-based technology offers much greater accuracy than GPS trackers. Not just to which house or neighbours garden but guides you right in to their exact location to within 2.5 cm (1 inch).
Simply attach the lightweight (5 grams) tag to your cat or kitten’s collar and you can quickly locate them using the credit card-sized handset.
Splash-proof cases supplied protects your Tag from the elements and from knocks, bumps or minor scratches.
Activate the Handset and it sounds a series of beeps, with colour-coded lights to show you which direction to walk in. The more lights the closer you are – Red for far away, Amber for closer, and Green for really close. Batteries included : 1 x CR2032 battery in the Handset and 2 x SR1130 batteries in each Tag.
DISTANCE / RANGE : We quote a range of 152m / 500 feet as a guideline. If locating in a house and going through doors and walls the range will be reduced. If used outside, clear line of sight you can expect the range to increase significantly. Cats tend to stay local so if you are worried where they are have a walk around the neighbourhood. Tabcat will help find them, even if they’re in the neighbours house!
TAG SIZE : 3cm (H) x 2cm (W) x 0.9cm (D) / 1.18in (H) x .79in (W) x 0.35in (D)
NOTE: Tags and Handset not compatible with previous models, only Version 2 (V2).
2 Years Manufacturer’s Warranty
30 Day Money Back Guarantee

As winner of the Sunday Times best GPS (dog) device a few years back we’re pretty familiar with GPS technology but here’s a quick few pointers why we believe GPS is NOT the right technology for cats:
To sum it up - We understand the benefits for GPS, it’s a great technology and one we’ve sold but the specific requirements a cat needs – small, light, accurate and a reasonable battery life is just not available today with GPS technology. It’s why we offer a 30 day money back guaranteed so you can test / compare Tabcat at home for yourself.
Place the tag you wish to register within arms length of the handset and ensure it is the only active tag in close proximity to the handset. Ensure the plastic strip has been removed to activate battery. To register the tag to button 1, hold button 1 down for three seconds or until you hear a beep. Repeat registration process for any other tags with the other available buttons.
Press the right hand side button to switch on your Tabcat – the red status light will flash. Press the left hand side (volume) button and simultaneously press button 1. Hold both buttons down for three seconds or until you hear a beeps. Then release both buttons. This will un-register the tag paired with button 1 and allow you to register the tag to a different button or handset. Repeat this process holding down the left hand side button and button 2 to un-register tag associated with button 2. Repeat as necessary for buttons 3 and 4.
Alternatively, have a look at the process in video.
At the top end of each tag there is a hole which you can thread a lanyard through. At the opposite end there a small space you can insert the tag opening tool (included in pack). Insert into space and twist and tag will pop open. Replace with x2 Silver Oxide Button Cell SR1130 battery keeping the plus side up near the lanyard hole and the plus side down on the opposite end. Replace the lid by lining up the lanyard hole and pressing shut.
The Tabcat Handset uses x1 CR2032 battery and the Homing Tag uses x2 SR3011. They can be purchased from most supermarkets or stores that would sell batteries.
Currently, Tabcat products are only available online, through the Tabcat Official Store online. We are currently working with a variety of retailers to make Tabcat available in retail shops.

We recommend removing the tag form the silicone case every three months to extract cat hair from the case and inside the tag. When removing you must also check for scratches, bite marks or damage caused by your cat to the silicone case. If any damage has incurred, we recommend replacing. (Replacement cases can be purchased via our website). The duration of the silicone case depends on your cat.
Please check to ensure collar is not too loose or tight to avoid rubbing. When adjusting the collar, you must leave enough space to be able to slide two fingers between the collar and your cat’s neck to avoid injury, or two-three fingers for long hair cats. Owners should be aware of how to fit a collar correctly and it is owners responsibility to choose the correct collar for their cat. For your cats comfort we recommend the collar/Tabcat is removed once a month and checked.
