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.
