Tracking Outdoor Pet Movements

Ever wondered where you pet might go while outside, does he just laze about the house or does he prowl the neighbourhood. Apparently that question was just too much for Mr Lee, so he developed a set of utilities to solve that problem:

  • CatTrack: Affix a small GPS logging device to your favourite pet and when they return home for the night – you can download the GPS data and view the path/route within Google Maps.
  • CatCam: Affix a small camera to your favourite pet and actually see where they are. For those that don’t deal well with maps, you know who you are.
  • CatCam Live: Affix a small camera and wifi equipment to your animal to stream their pictures live, no more waiting for your animal to return home to download the pictures taken during the day.

Hugo, 1 Month & Amazing

Hugo Lattimore at age 1 month enjoying time on the playmatClaire and I have been parents now for the lengthy period of one month and it has been an unforgettable experience.

Over that time we’ve seen an incredible shift in Hugo, which has been very exciting to watch happen before our  eyes. When Hugo was first born, he was alert – so much so that the midwife commented on it. We both thought that was pretty amazing, not breathing for five minutes and already checking the place out. A month on though, Hugo’s ability to investigate and explore the surroundings has improved greatly and is always finding new things to look at.

Hugo continues to grow at a nice solid pace, born at 3.84Kg and he lost approximately 240gm in the days following. In the last day we were in hospital, Hugo had already started to gain back the 240gm that he lost initially, which pleased the doctors and weighed in at 4.4Kg last week.

Given so much has changed with Hugo since birth, I am really excited to see what will happen in the next month. I’m sure his muscle control and motor skills will improve which will allow him to do things that make his achievements in the first month look mediocre!
