At the Birdsbesafe® company, we obsess about fabric colors and patterns. We've been paying careful attention to which fabrics work best to warn birds since 2008. We've got it "figured out" at this point. How did we figure out the magic formula for bird-warning success?
It involved paying a lot of attention: to shades of colors, patterns of colors, and principles that seemed to emerge over years of selling these. We keep photos of past fabrics, with notes, and we keep track of things like which fabrics were used by cat owners who raved about success, which fabrics were re-ordered many times, and which received less than stellar comments.
Our customers, back a few years ago, would receive free covers to replace sub-par performing ones. We always take care of our customers. And our customers have taken care of us: providing testing of new fabrics, too.
In 2015, we are selling patterns and colors that work very very well. It's not random, and it's not a guessing game. We have principles guiding the fabric choice--and these principles have proven themselves over years and thousands of cats. So, buy with confidence and in the very unlikely scenario where you don't feel happy with the colors' performance, let us know and we'll take care of it.

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."

As we enter the holiday season, in 2020, it is remarkable how very unique 2020 has been around the globe. What remained the same, for us at Birdsbesafe company, was our devotion to helping cat owners save birds!

We really enjoy hearing from you about your successes with Birdsbesafe® collar covers on your cats protecting birds in your yards. Here's just a sampling of some recent emails that we have received! We appreciate every one of them.
Thanks for caring about cats and birds.
"We love your product, it’s amazingly effective…not a single caught bird since we’ve started using the collar covers. Wish all cat owners who let their cats outside knew about these."
