Ever wonder what exactly feral and free-roaming house cats really do when they're out and about in our cities, suburbs and rural areas? You may have heard of the amazing Eyenimal Digital Camera Videocam for Pets owners use to follow and record their pets' travels indoors and out (click here for post).
In the same vein, a recent two-year study used sophisticated tracking devices to monitor the travels of 42 owned and un-owned adult cats over a range of 6,286 acres at the southern edge of Champaign and Urbana, neighboring cities in Central Illinois.
The pet cats had significantly smaller territories and tended to stay close to home, their mean home range being 4.9 acres. Generally they spent just a startling 3 percent of their time engaged in highly active behavior, such as running or stalking prey, the researchers reported. The un-owned cats were highly active 14 percent of the time, largely because their survival depended upon hunting for their own food.
You can securely view and manage the camera by simply logging into mydlink.com and selecting your camera. Since the DCS-930L comes with a built-in microphone, you can see and hear for yourself that everything is well at home with your pets and family. Easy to install.
The entrance can be placed on either side of the unit to suit its location in your room. Inside it has a convenient, removable partition wall that creates a space to store litter, scoop and other supplies. A pre-cut hole in the back panel allows the cord of the automated litter box to go through for the convenient access to the outlet. Internal Dimensions: 36.5" wide x 20.25" long x 21.5" high.
See the world through the eyes of your cat or dog. This DogTek Eyenimal Pet Video Camera is designed to be worn by pets and will allow you to follow their travels indoors and out while recording memories of their lives.
The video camera firmly attaches to your pet's collar with a specially-designed fastening clip at which point you can begin recording. It's equipped with an autofocus sensor as well as an automatic brightness sensor which allows the camera to easily adjust to and from indoor and outdoor use. To view the video, remove the camera and connect it to your PC using the USB cable provided.
This video camera does have a waterproof casing, so it can be used in wet or damp conditions but likely will not survive a dip in the lake. In case your pet ever loses the camera, there is a spot on the back for the owner to write on his/her name and contact details.

The Iditarod is a sled dog race that starts from Anchorage, in south central Alaska ending in Nome on the western Bering Sea coast. Each team of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover over 1150 miles in 10 to 17 days. This race is currently in high gear. From the site:
You can't compare it to any other competitive event in the world! A race over 1150 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer. She throws jagged mountain ranges, frozen river, dense forest, desolate tundra and miles of windswept coast at the mushers and their dog teams. Add to that temperatures far below zero, winds that can cause a complete loss of visibility, the hazards of overflow, long hours of darkness and treacherous climbs and side hills, and you have the Iditarod.
While the trail through the wilderness is the same route travelled during the gold rushes a century ago, the 2011 Iditarod has gone high-tech. The mushers are equipped with custom-made sleds with adjustable runners for varying snow conditions and new this year, global-positioning-satellite (GPS) devices to monitor their progress. Live-streamed updates, cell phones and blogs keep the world informed about events along the 1,150-mile trail (1,850 km).
Researchers at Auburn University's Canine Detection Research Institute have created an external, real-time navigation system to guide detection dogs remotely. This new "backpack" is equipped with GPS, sensors, a processor and a radio modem, and directs the dog with vibration and tone. The system should enable these specially trained 'super dogs' to take on risky tasks such as security, combat operations, and support for the disabled.
Thinking of getting an aquarium, but not sure you are up for the maintenance? This Hypnotic Jellyfish Aquarium provides the desired "mesmerizing ambience" without the hard work of live fish. It has three artificial jellyfish that move in the water amidst the seaweed and coral reefs.
The aquarium sets up on your bookshelf or tabletop. A silent, integrated motor generates gentle currents, causing the jellyfish to rise and fall in the water, while LED back-lighting highlights their movements. You can choose specific light patterns from nine integrated LEDs that provide red, blue, and green highlights within the aquascape.
