Secret life of the cat: Kato

The daily routines of dozens of domestic cats have been revealed in a study for the BBC's Horizon programme.

As part of the largest ever research project into domestic cat behaviour, the Horizon team - aided by the Royal Veterinary College and Lincoln and Bristol Universities - tracked dozens of pet cats over several 24-hour periods using specially-designed collar GPS devices and tiny "cat cams".

Watch one of the cats, Kato, play with string.

Watch Horizon's Secret Life of the Cat on BBC Two on Thursday 13 June at 21:00 and afterwards on BBC iPlayer.
