Today’s giveaway is for one of the more unique products I’ve seen lately. The Cat Caller is a remote locator that goes on your cat’s collar. A. A wireless remote keychain transmits a unique signal to each individual receiver. There is also a “panic button” that sends a signal to all receivers at once. It is said to work through walls, closets, indoors and outdoors.
The Cat Caller was invented by Pat Hill. Like all good mothers, she worries about her babies. She got frustrated with her cats getting into the most unusual hiding places. They also seemed to have an uncanny way of knowing when she was getting ready to leave the house. We all know that there’s nothing worse than thinking that your cat might be trapped in a closet, or slipped outside unnoticed. Pat worked with an engineer for several years to figure out how to make a receiver that would attach to any collar, be bright enough to see, loud enough to hear and have a range just far enough to be able to do both. And of course, it couldn’t be a nuisance to the cat. The Cat Caller was the result of her research.
I could certainly use a cat tracker like this for Allegra! Ruby always comes when I call her, but Allegra is selective about responding. I still remember the day she hid inside our kitchen cabinets, and for a good twenty minutes, I thought I had lost her. Those twenty minutes felt like they took about twenty years off my life! A Cat Caller would have been handy then, that’s for sure.
