... ranges of rural cats ranged from 0.07ha to 2.86ha, while those of urban cats were 0.01ha to 0.64ha. Male and female cats had similar home ranges and there was no evidence of seasonal differences in home ranges. The longest linear distance moved by any cat was 300m, so allowing a 20% margin for estimation...

One female provided enough data for home range analysis, and had a home range of 2.7 ha (MCP) or 1.47 ha (KL95%); the core home range (KL50%) was only 0.16 ha. There were no signs that either individual avoided activity during...
