Don't forget your acoustic options. You can use a microphone and a low pass filter to get the heart beat sound. Then you can use a comparator to get a logic pulse for each heart cycle.

If the quoted statement is true you would not be able to hear any soud from speaker. And it is not the average value of the signal that produces sound but it's rms value.

One simple way is to have a necklace on the cat with pulsed LEDs . Then in each room there are optical sensors. Their outputs are amplified through band pass amplifiers tuned to the pulse frequency.
The alternatives of sound generators on the cat would irritate it. Radio methods are more complex because the receivers can detect through wall

A selective glass break detector in contrast to a simple shock sensor senses the high frequency solid-borne sound specific to breaking glass. It's almost unsensitive to false alarms e.g. from clicking against the window. You can consult the descriptions of professional burglar alarms to get an idea of their operation.

It depends on the zero cross detector circuit. Of course, you need to write code to detect zero cross, but the amount of code to be written depends on the detector circuit being used.

Curiously, D3 has no function in the said circuit, because it's permanently reverse biased. If you put a capacitor in series with R13, it would have a purpose.
As a general remark, it's a very simple proximity detector, because it only measures intensity rather than transit time of ultrasonic sound.
