(KGTV) - Think your cat is just spending all night sleeping at the foot of your bed?

For many cats that is definitely not true.

Australian researchers put GPS trackers on cats which recorded their movements overnight.

The results showed they roamed all over their neighborhoods. In some cases, they wandered as far as nearly 2 miles away.

The 'Domestic Cat Tracking Project' ended up successfully tracking 14 cats.

The researchers say the takeaway message is to pay close attention to your pets and bring them in at night.
