City cats compete for territory

Experience a cat's eye view of the world as city cat Tigger takes you on a tour of his territory and introduces you to his neighbour Minky - ­a timid cat who is far from happy about this rival in her back yard.

Tiny cameras and GPS tracking devices were attached to a group of city cats living in Brighton, as part of a unique scientific study where a top team of scientists delved into the mind of the domestic cat.
