This research presents a preliminary study conducted on a cat fitted with biotelemetry devices. The aim was to explore the feline’s wearability experience of bearing off-the-shelf products. The cat’s reactions to the device presence were recorded and findings suggest the need for a design approach centred on the wearer. A wearer-centred framework to inform the design of biotelemetry interventions for animals is then proposed
