PAW / Home Appliance


Cats can be out of home for several days, or weeks. Scared or hurt cats hide, they keep quiet and are very hard for owners to find. Not being aware of what your cats do when they are out of home is something that creates stress and worry for many.

Knowing whether the cats are sick, hurt, scared or just away for a long walk could calm owners.
What if we could help owners know how their cats are doing?

Paw is a product family that provides owners with info about their cats location and activity level. Through a wearable for the cat and a stationary unit and app for the owner they have everything needed to stay calm and closer to their cats.
