P12352: Top Cat Phase II


Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, click on the following link for the Project Readiness Package.

Cats have territories that can range considerably in size, studies have shown that even house cats have territories that range from 6 to 70 acres. When unknown cats enter a territory this could start a territorial conflict and without their owners around to stop them a fight can occur. These fights can lead to serious injuries due to infections. The primary object of this project is to design two short range collars that can deter two cats from each other thus preventing a fight. Each device must be able to fit on a collar and must not restrict a cats movement and most be able to be triggered at a specified range. The end goal is to deter cats from each other, so they cannot inflict harm upon one another.
