What do they define as highly active
3% is only about 45 minutes,
my cats are a lot more active than that.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Probably ‘running speed’. Of course even the best GPS is only accurate to within three feet, and most it’s about twelve, so there may ahve been shorter bursts of activity. But yeah, housecats are pretty lethargic compared to their feral brethren.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

The best comsumer gps is accurate to about 3 -5 ft.  However the gps used by surveyors are accurate to within centimeters.  In the case of tracking collars however you are right and in fact the resolution is probably in the area of 5 meters rather than 5 feet.  A lot of a gpsr’s accuracy depends on the antenna and something that would fit on a tracking collar would probably not provide the same level of accuracy compared to consumer or professional units.  I guess in this case though the researcher only had to be in the ball park.

Active = sitting for half an hour, or so, on a wall, overlooking their terrain.
So forget your GPS. A 5mm accuracy wouldn
