Meet George and Amal Clooney’s newest family member

George and Amal Clooney have welcomed a new member to their family.

The celebrity couple have adopted a puppy – a 4-year-old basset hound named Millie.

The Clooneys reportedly saw a photo of Millie online and couldn’t resist adopting her from the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society in California.

George and Amal are big animal lovers and also have a pair of rescued cocker spaniels, one of whom was there when they adopted Millie.

Where does your cat go when you’re not home?

They say curiosity killed the cat, but have you ever wondered where your cat roams to when you are away from home?

National Geographic is reporting on Cat Tracker, a new crowd sourced mapping project, which encourages owners to put GPS collars on domestic cats to monitor their movements.

After seven days, owners download the tracking data and their feline’s movements are transformed into  lines on a satellite map.

The Cat Tracker team is working with Your Wild Life and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, in collaboration with Movebank on the project.

So far they have posted movement maps for about 50 cats, but are aiming for at least a thousand.
