Happy New Year. Greetings from the waning hours of 2014 in North America. Birdsbesafe® LLC wants to wish you, your cats, and your local wildlife (especially songbirds) a very happy New Year for 2015. To celebrate, we have put the following highly festive new patterns on sale on our Shopping Page.
The red one is an old favorite from 2011 or so. Neat! It's available while supplies last. The other three feature yellow and bold colors.
Be sure to dress up your cat for the New Year's party, or at least, for the new year. Remember, if the songbirds can see your cat from a distance, they'll have time to fly to safety nearly all the time. (Songbirds have a 4th cone for color vision ability that makes bright colors extra-bright. And they have extra rods so that they see well in low light conditions too.)
Plus, you'll love the reflective piping that helps make your cat visible by reflecting car headlights!
We've had an exceptional year in 2014 with many successes. The most rewarding is hearing from you about your cats--and their foiled bird-catching. Here's wishing you a safe and wildlife-friendly 2015. Stay tuned: Birdsbesafe has big news coming in 2015 for birds worldwide! Cheers, Nancy

We are grateful for the loyalty and dedication of our sewing partners, who have sewn our products ever since 2015. Our products are made in the United States, and they always have been. It is a decision of ours to support American manufacturing, and to support the fair compensation of the sewing professionals whose hands guide our products through the sewing process. We rely on their superb professional sewing capabilities in order to bring you a beautiful collar cover to help protect birds -- and to dress up your cat in an attractive way.
Fabric is the main "ingredient" of our product. Over the years, fabric prices have increased. Today, we raised the price of our product. It was our first price increase since 2013. We needed our prices to better reflect our actual costs. We hope you will understand and appreciate that it was an overdue adjustment.

Results of a scientific field study, led by Univ. of Exeter's Dr. Robbie MacDonald, were published in the journal Current Biology this week."Fitting Birdsbesafe collar covers reduced the numbers of birds captured and brought home by 42% but had no discernible effect on mammals."
And, the research paper characterized it: "Birdsbesafe is a colorful collar cover that works as a visual warning, increasing the visibility of cats to potential prey animals with color vision. It exhibited pronounced effectiveness in reducing killing of birds, and more generally, prey with good color vision, including herpetofauna."
