How to know % of read file in cat?

I use cat to read a file and pass it to another app, the command is this:

camibar% cat file.git | fossil import --git file.fossil

It takes a lot of time, file.git is 12GB, and i want to know if there's some 'magic' trick can I use to show me how many bytes or the % of the file.git cat sent to the other app.

Maybe cat isn't the correct tool?
