I have often wondered where my four cats go during the day and what they get up to. We see them as quite domesticated but I have recently become aware that at least one is capable of killing and eating its own food. The others don’t seem to know what to do with a dead bird or mouse and see it more as a play thing. I would love to know how far they roam and where they go.

I found this experiment particularly interesting, it followed ten different cats putting GPS tracking devices and micro cameras on them to see what they did. All the cats had different territories, some stayed very close to home just frequenting their own garden, whilst others went as far as seven acres. I doubt mine go that far but I would probably be shocked as exactly what they do get up to.
