The Birdsbesafe® company is pleased to share in the discussion of the new science study, from St. Lawrence University, as reported in the Global Ecology and Conservation Journal, an Elsevier journal available online.
Using the numbers, above, we at Birdsbesafe company calculate that represents an 87% decrease in birds killed by cats, per year, if cats wear Birdsbesafe® covers in all seasons. Here is the math to use to get to the percentage of birds saved:
1. Calculate the number of birds per year per cat that would be protected, using the above numbers: That's 5.56 minus 0.72 = 4.84 birds protected by device, on average, per year per cat.
2.To turn that into the percentage of birds saved: 4.84 divided by 5.56 = 87% birds protected!
That's why the Birdsbesafe company is devoted to this product: It really works! Tell your friends, your local nature center and your local pet store about us, and help save birds. We're already saving tens of thousands of birds. Let's reach for more!

Birdsbesafe cat collar covers are, indeed, able to highly reduce the number of birds caught by cats. Enjoy the radio story here.

Would you dress up your cat in brightly colored "ruff" to save the lives of backyard birds? It was an open question, when I started my company to popularize my own bird-saving invention in 2009.
Eleven years later, we owe all our customers a debt of gratitude for providing a resounding "Yes" to that question. You do care about birds, and you will use our colorful cat accessory to save birds from your cat. Thank you!
