Review of The Tabcat Tracking System

 

We don’t do reviews as a rule but we found Loc8tor to be ahead of the pack with innovative ideas for tracking lost items.  Click on their name to see more of their history.

SHOKO…..BLACK
MOM….. MAROON

The package arrived in the mail a couple of days ago and what struck mom right away was the weight and compactness of the parcel.  The entire box weighed a pound.

Inside the box is;

1 Tabcat Handset
2 Lightweight Homing Tags
2 Splashproof Cases
Mini Tool To Open Tag                                                      
My curiosity was piqued.                                                 

I made sure mom handled it with care and I examined the Tabcat personally.

 

Shoko has volunteered to wear the Tabcat disc on her collar to show us how it works.                                                  

The Splashproof case matches my eyes.

The disc is ideal because I’ve rolled outside in my garden to see if dirt gets into the mechanism and it doesn’t. 

My thinking here is, we must wear the Tabcat disc everyday cause one never knows when one might get lost or where curiosity might take one.  So the disc should be able to stand up to everyday situations.

One thing that is making my fur itch is the possibility that the beeping may sound like a “clicker.”  I hate the “Clicker” with a passion that lies deep within me.  I hear a click and I leave the room as fast as my paws will carry me.  I don’t care if you have millions of treats with catnip on top…..I’m outta there!                                               Is the “Clicker” gone yet?

 

The sound is more of a beep than a click so I didn’t run away.  The range is 400 feet.

You can purchase the Tabcat at Amazon.com.  Simply click on Tabcat and be taken to the selection.

You can also purchase your monitor directly from the Tabcat Shop online.

 

 

The only suggestion that I have for Loc8tor is the button that starts the Tabcat on the right-hand side is in the identical location on the left-hand side for the sound.  So holding the Tabcat comfortably, one hand is on the start and the fingers are on the sound.  I would suggest making these buttons or one of them higher than the other for easier application.

We were not reimbursed in any way for this review.  Everything in this review is from Shoko and I, even the opinions are ours.  We enjoyed bringing this tracking device to your attention friends.

 

If you have any questions about the Tabcat and it’s functioning, put your questions in the comments and David Ansell from Tabcat will assist you with your inquiries.

KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…RED VIOLET

 

. My favorite cereal is…..LUCKY CHARMS.  The different colors make me feel happy and they taste fantabulous.                                                 

2. My prom….. WAS NOT MEMORABLE AND NOT WORTH DISCUSSING SO WE WON’T.  WELL, TRUTH TIME I NEVER WENT TO A PROM.

3. The …..MAJOR….. thing about …..OREGANO…..  IS TO REALIZE THAT THE TASTIER AND MILDER LEAVES ARE THE YOUNG WEE ONES.  THE OLDER ONES ARE TOO STRONG FOR US KITTIES WITH SENSITIVE PALATES.  SO POKE ABOUT IN THE REGANO AND FIND THE SMALLEST LEAVES AND CHOW DOWN.                                                                 

 

4. I cannot help….. MYSELF,….. but …..THE MOMENT I HEAR BUDDY BUDD’S VOICE THE FUR ON THE BACK OF MY NECK STANDS UP.

Have a great Friday and remember Saturday is around the corner so get ready to pawta with us.
                                                                            

Shopping Around The World…March Edition

This month Phenny from Easy Blog  is offering Shopping Around The World for Bacon of Piglove blog.  Aside from putting down the prices we are suppose to make up a delicious sweet and tasty dessert.                                                                       

We decided to do one of our more challenging pies with our friends. We are not a dessert family unless we buy it. Then look out we can gobble down sweets like your average turkey.  Our pie is Key Lime Pie and it is delicious.

All items purchased at The Real Canadian Superstore.

You will need a graham cracker pie crust.

A 9 inch graham cracker pie crust is $3.48                                                                                

A box of Key Lime Pudding

A 25 gram box  $3.97                                                                               

Two eggs

a dozen large eggs $2.25 so 2 eggs will be $0.40                                                                

Can of Whipping Cream…light  hehe

225 grams $3.52                                                                                 

There….you are armed and dangerous.  I’m just supervising mom to see how she messes up. MOL

INSTRUCTIONS:

1/ First we take the pie shell and brush the two egg whites that have been whisked together on the inside of the crust.   Then put the crust into a preheated oven at 350F for five minutes

.

2/  Take the Key Lime pudding and mix according to the recipe.  You will be using your left over yolks here.  Follow the recipe on the package of pudding.  After making the pudding wait for a few minutes to see if it is thickening.

3/  Meanwhile your pie crust is ready and you should cool it off while your pudding is thickening.

4/  Pour your key lime pudding into the graham cracker pie crust when both are cool.                                                                                
5/ Refrigerate the pie and filling for 2 hours.                                                                     Ta Da…done.  Enjoy!

A nice decoration on the Key Lime Pie is a sprig of nip or a small duck that quacks out the virtues of sweets.

May your pie not have a fur coat but
if it does braid the fur and chow down.

A Fun Week

 

What a fun week we had.  Kali has been out sunning herself in her hat and sun glasses so she doesn’t have to worry about a burn.  Her fur is white and she seems to feel the effects of the sun quickly.

I'm set....no sun puddles for me.  I want to get out and savour the sun's rays

Me?  well I’ve been helping mom, as usual.  We got several pots of flowers planted.  The leeks and celery were planted in the greenhouse along with the Summer Savoury herb.  We ran outside every few minutes as it was hot as stink in there.  I noticed a green pepper fruit is about an inch wide on the peppers.  All the squash is planted outside except the spaghetti squash.  So we need to plant the corn, cauliflower, swiss chard, beets and carrots yet.

This carrot seed tape is easy peasy.  No fuss or mess, just lay the tape down and cover with soil.  Of course, I grab the tape and run….just airing the seeds out.  Then I continually break them for mom.  So when she does lay them down…they are of a smaller size she can handle.

Earlier in the week Speedy The Cheeky Rex Rabbit had me as a guest bunny on Disapproving Bun Day.  I had a ball as a bunny.  Mr. Mick, a handsome guest bunny and I kicked up some dust with Speedy.

Nellie from The Cat From Hell also made me an honorary member of the Cat From Hell and put me on her Hellions Page.

I want to thank Speedy and Nellie for helping me have such a fun time.

Mom and I still have a fair bit of planting to do but it looks like a storm is moving in so the plants and seeds will have to wait…a good watering from the skies is needed for the plants and the forest fires.

Welaxing Wednesday

 

Wednesday PurrsToday was a mellow day.  We all spent most of the day enjoying the new growth of Spring.

We got a little sapling lilac tree last year from our bald headed neighbour.  We now see the new growth starting.

The Alpine Willy Clematis is very early every year and is about to bloom.

Mom has been weeding the lily bed and we have been watching by the catnip.  Mom’s way to handle the catnip is to block off two of them…letting them grow.  One is opened for our use…and usually has fur all over it.  When this one gets down, mom picks the fur off and wraps chicken wire around it but opens one of the good ones.  This way there is catnip all summer long.

                                                                                    

The next 2 weeks are planting weeks.  All the soil and added nutrients need to be rototilled in my veggie garden and the potato patch.  This is dad’s job.  Planting the potatoes and veggies are mom and my job.  The perennials need more bone meal this year too.  Lots to do yet.

Doesn’t my veggie patch look nekked.  Remember this picture in July.  I can work wonders with my green paw.
