Cat owners who let their furry family members go outside know cats like to roam about and survey their section of the kingdom, patrolling the area so their humans aren't suddenly invaded by an army of mice.
But the distance they travel remains a bit of a mystery, since we usually can't see every bit of where our cats go while they're outside.
People have tried attaching cameras to their collars to see where they go, but this doesn't give us a very good idea of the total distance traveled.
So Australia's Central Tablelands Local Land Service came up with the brilliant idea to log how far a cat actually travels using a GPS tracker, so cat owners can see how much their cat actually gets around.
Cats are considered an invasive species in Australia, and yet owners claim their cats always stay close to home, so the Land Service hopes these GPS maps will open their eyes to just how much their cats get around.
