Seven: Leo on a Thursday in the snow

Snowing again in Bradford and Leo goes out early in the morning for a wander and a wee. Lets follow him…


We pick Leo up in the field on his adventures. This is probably because the tracker seems to need to move a long distance quickly to turn itself on (or leave sleep mode) and to do that in good sight of clear sky. This is something that will happen when Leo is running in the field.

Leo comes back from the field via the big house at the bottom of Hunters Park Avenue and he works his way through the inside gardens on Hunters Park Avenue and on Crescent Walk. He more or less avoids my neighbour’s garden and ends his wander back home.

This probably represents Leo’s territory. He checks out the places he knows on his morning wander and then comes home.

One thing though. Leo does not seem to stop for long enough to have a bathroom break. I wonder where he goes to go?

Sixth: Early morning wanderings in the snow

Leo did not go to sleep until two the night before this early morning walk at nine and as such he was not gagging for a wee as he normally is at this time. It was Sunday morning, it was still snowy. Let us see where he has gone.


Probably the first thing to notice is how Leo sticks to human areas on this wander. He spends a little time in the woods but mostly he is around the houses of Crescent Walk after starting his walk by going to the woods.

Kären and I had a sneaky wander around the top of the woods where Leo goes this afternoon. It has steep banks down to the beck but Leo stays away from the beck and sticks to a cat-path. He has a small run in the field but the snow was probably too deep for him and he trotted back.

Its interesting that he has a number of paths through gardens towards (or away from, in this case) the field. He has more than one route to and from the field though the houses.

In the middle of the walk he came home and sat around for a while. The tracker is not brilliant at tracking Leo sitting around and it seems that he is darting about small areas. He is not, he is very much sleeping.

He went out for another wander after his sleep which was when we were having out sneaky wander into his field. He did not go into the field but it is possible he saw us in it (or smelled, Leo’s sense of smell is good and he can sniff people before he sees them)

He went into the woods but rather than scrabbling through the mud he ran through someone’s garden and then wandered home.

Five: A cat in the snow

Leo went out at about nine for a wander and a wee after sleeping all night. Clayton was covered with snow so lets see where he goes…


First Leo’s tracker only wakes from its sleep mode as he is already far away. He is around the field near the cemetery when we pick him up and on his way back home. He cuts through a few gardens near home but takes a turn down to the woods before returning home. I suspect he had his wee before the tracker began.

Its a shame that the tracker slept at the start and hopefully future data will be fuller.
