Health and Location Trackers
Many people now have Fitbits and other health trackers that tracks our daily lives. These gadgets, worn on the wrist track everything from how many steps we take to calorie intake and even heart rate. Pet owners are now looking for similar products for their pets. One of the most popular requests is for trackers that track location. There are plenty on the market, but one of the top, sought after cat trackers is the Girafus. This is a lightweight collar mounted tracker with a radius of up to 500m. Unlike other trackers it uses radio frequencies and can help to locate cats trapped in sheds or lost indoors.
Self Cleaning Litter Box
No one likes cleaning the litter tray, even having them in the home can be off putting. However, if you have an indoor cat you can’t escape the litter box. The good news is there are now self cleaning on the market. A top seller is the PetSafe ScoopFree Ultra Self Cleaning Litter Box. Litter is consistently cleaned; it’s a great compact size and the price isn’t as terrifying as some of the other models out there.
Catios or Cat Fences
Want to keep your cat protected from risks such as traffic accidents, theft, loss, disease, harm? You’re not alone. Keeping cats indoors has increased in popularity in recent years.

Automatic Cat Feeders
There are times when you can’t be at home to feed your cat at their expected feeding times. Automatic cat feeders can help to keep your routine flowing as usual and they keep the food fresh too.
