Interesting data

They seem to stick close but some may take the odd longer trip, why we don't know, probably freebees.  Sex of animal will play a part,  Male cats will wander much more than female ones. 

Just because an domestic cat wanders does not mean its hunting, it just might be. Or it might be hunting other cat's food - a frequent prey item from my experience.

Could go much further though! 

How about getting the train and doing a couple of thousand kilometers

Dear birdlsters 

For those interested in the cat containment debate - this fascinating project in SA is tracking the roaming patterns of a group of domestic cats in the suburbs.  

You can also view the individual cat tracks - click on view track under each cat   

Some moggies roam in their immediate neighbourhood but others like MonMon, Frizzle and BruceWillis had some long forays to suburb edge and beyond.
