Proximity sensors, y'know, for cats!

I'm looking for proximity trigger/sensors system with triggers are small enough to be worn by household pets, possibly attached to their collar. The sensors can be stationary and plugged into a power outlet.

Some additional details about the requirements: It doesn't have to be engineering components, if something like Lego Mindstorms can do this, that's fine. I don't need to know exact distances either , the sensor simply needs to know when the trigger is nearby, while ignoring nearby objects that don't have the trigger. I've looked up proximity sensors in various parts catalogs, but I'm not familiar enough with the terminology to know what specific sensors do, or what other components they require to function.
