The Tractive GPS Tracker helps you keep tabs on the whereabouts of your beloved feline companion. It has several features that mean you can enjoy a little more peace of mind if you have a cat you’re worried about escaping or an outdoor cat that you don’t want to wander too far.
The Tractive Cat Tracker fits onto a cat’s collar and then provides live updates on your cat’s location to the compatible smartphone app. The location updates every 2-3 seconds, so you’ll always know where they are.

Virtual Fence for Cats
You can also set up a virtual fence on the map – ideal for surrounding your home or garden. If your cat leaves this area, you’ll get a notification so that you can track them down if necessary. Of course, you can customize this boundary to suit your cat so that you don’t get notifications all the time, but they’re kept safe.
The Tractive Cat Tracker also uses a heatmap to tell you your cat’s favorite places to hang out. Even if you accidentally forget to charge the tracker, you’ll at least have an idea of where they spend most of their time outdoors, making finding them a little bit easier.
Tracker Fits onto Collars
The tracker GPS fits onto collars up to an inch wide and is flexible so that it won’t cause discomfort to your cat. It’s lightweight but is recommended for cats weighing at least 8.8lb.
The battery can last up to 7 days. The battery life will depend on how much your cat likes to wander and how often you want to check-in. Then you need to take it off your cat and charge it up using the included charger. You can also set up a Power Saving Zone on the map – such as inside your home – so that the collar enters low power mode when it’s in that area to help preserve charge.
It has an IPX7 rating which means it’s completely waterproof, even when submerged, so if it gets dirty, you can rinse it off with no problems.
The power button is designed so that animals can’t turn it on or off accidentally too. If you lose the collar or can’t see it somewhere dark, it has a built-in light and speaker that can flash and play sounds to help you locate it.
GPS Tracker for Cats
The GPS tracker works using a SIM card, as you would have on your smartphone. However, this does mean that you need to pay a subscription for it to work, which starts at $X per month, although you can save if you pay for one or two years in advance.
It will then connect to networks in over 150 countries with 24/7 coverage at no extra cost – it's all covered by one subscription payment. Because of this, you can even track your cat while on vacation on the other side if you want to.
