A new book by Peter Marra and Chris Santella, entitled "Cat Wars", discusses the conservation issue of cat predation on wildlife. The authors' approach to the subject divides the interested factions into "cat people" versus "bird people."
We have a few thoughts on the topic, ourselves, after 7.5 years of hearing from cat owners who are concerned about protecting birds.

Birdsbesafe cat collar

Hello friends of cats and birds in the UK. We were just featured on the BBC's show "The One". Terrific! The feature showed a woman testing our products on her cats, and the result: No more dead birds!

Here's the link, viewable in the UK only in this format: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04jclr7

To watch it outside of the UK, try a virtual private network service, like Tunnel Bear and set your location to the UK.

It Takes a Village

Posted on October 04, 2016 by Nancy Brennan

It takes a village to raise a child, they say, and it certainly takes a village to start a business from scratch. We have always been lucky finding support for our efforts at Birdsbesafe LLC.

Our business lost a member of its inner circle today, with the passing away of our gentle mentor and personal friend. He was our first champion of our efforts here, and he sustained his enthusiasm, never balked at our questions, gave expert advice, and celebrated our successes.

He always looked at the glass as half full, and although that is a cliche, when you are running a business, it is good to have someone a phonecall away who can describe any challenge as an opportunity. And it's even better when they have faith in your ability to persevere and succeed. I was blessed to have this MBA consultant "on call" for the last eight years, generous with his time and his guidance.

We will continue to try to honor him by being a strong business with a great product that helps saves birds far and wide. Thank you, PD, for your grace and strength, in business and life. We are beholden. And we will miss you, dearly, not just in business, but in all else.
