Cat Map: an interactive map of cats
Ever wondered about the tabby cats in Tottenham? Do white cats hail from White City? Or do you just want to know how many cats there are in Catford?
Marking the arrival of London’s newest and biggest cats at ZSL London Zoo’s soon-to-be-opened Tiger Territory , we have come up with a revolutionary new way of charting each and every cat in London: Cat Map. Click on the map to add your cat:
We need you to add your feline friends' facts to our online map to make it the most inclusive survey of the capital’s puss population to date. Click on the map above to start mapping your cat!
Cat Map mimics techniques used by field conservationists when recording the numbers and locations of individual animals in the wild and will give an overview of all of the cats living in London.
When adding their moggy to Cat Map on the Zoo’s website, users upload a photo, and select the cat’s gender, age and colouring from pre-set categories – which will then be automatically placed on the interactive map.
Zookeepers at ZSL London Zoo have already added profiles for big cats Jae Jae and Melati, the Zoo’s new pair of critically endangered Sumatran tigers, and the Cat Map team will be closely monitoring London’s cat-stats as they are added to the database.
Londoners can now see city’s biggest cats in their new home at Tiger Territory, ZSL London Zoo.
