An Apple AirTag uses the power of passing, nearby IOS devices to ping the location.  You could try and rely on fill-in digis for a similar effect and just use a milliwatt transmitter.  I think the AirTag would find more ways to update location though, unless you have a neighborhood of fill-ins with a lightly loaded APRS network do that your cat is heard.

I seriously doubt he'd appreciate an antenna which would stick out and know that any solution would be little more than an air-cooled dummy load being driven with milliwatts at a HAAT of inches and I'd be lucky to receive decodable braaps a mile away. Ideas? 73
