Would a cat draw a map like this?

I found this map via @brainpickings on twitter. It is from a book about the best info graphics of the year which if you are interested you can buy online from here



The designers of the map said “Our cat Tibby disappeared suddenly and we were devastated. Then, five weeks later, he returned, fat and happy. We were overjoyed he was back, but where had he gone? We decided to strap a GPS unit to his collar and find out where he spent his days.’ (Caroline Paul, writer, and Wendy MacNaughton, illustrator)


So if you are a cat owner, what map would your cat draw?

If you are a geography student, what can you tell about the neighbourhood Tibby lives in from the map?

And if you are a geography teacher, how would you use this resource in a lesson?
