University of Georgia researcher Kerrie Anne Loyd is strapping video cameras to record the secret lives of outdoor cats.


Atlanta's 11 Alive interviewed owner Amy Watts of Athens about her cat Booker T's outdoor adventures. "I knew that Booker T's favorite place to go was down in the storm sewer," Watts told the news staiton. "And now I know what the storm sewer looks like."

Loyd said she gathered 2,000 hours of kitty-cam footage for he research project, partnering with National Geographic Remote Imaging to fit the cats with cameras. She said the research is meant to reveal outdoor cats' behavior and prove that they lead more dangerous lives than their indoor counterparts.

Watch the video, broadcast on Atlanta's 11 Alive on May 15.
