Re: Waiting for the most useful app of all
"Killer pet owner" app is more like it. Seeing so many strays on the street is heartbreaking, so I second the vote on this app (although it probably will never see the light of day for many reasons.)

Virtual Whistle
I'd love to get one of those, but all the sites/apps are for iOS. Has anyone tried something for android that works?

Waiting for the most useful app of all
And the "killer" pet app that is needed most of all is the one that sends a 1k volt of electricity shock via their smartphones to irresponsible owners who refuse to spay/neuter their pets.

I can't help but wonder
what % of people downloading an app to improve their pet's fitness are themselves, ahem, "lacking" in fitness?

But is there an app for that?
I may download Cornell's app for helping your pet maintain a good weight. One of our cats is, let's say, pleasantly plump. She's also extremely loud when her bowl is half full (guess Rina views it as half empty). So I'd also have to download a noise-canceling app to drown out her plaintive wails and a virtual blindfold to avoid her green-eyed stare as she followed me around the house, mewling pitifully for more food.

Re: gps tracking
I couldn't find one -- although some of the GPS vendors primarily targeting dogs claim their products are suitable for cats (these are the smaller devices that clip on collars). However, they don't meet all your criteria: All the ones I found did have a monthly fee. Your idea makes sense. When I owned indoor/outdoor cats (as opposed to our current indoor-only cats), a device like that would have been wonderful -- and avoided one lsemi-feral rescue cat who disappeared one day.

gps tracking
The one obvious device no one seems to has developed is a GPS tracking device for cats that's small enough not to be a burden but has enough battery power to run a transmitter, and doesn't require a monthly subscription fee.
