In Montpellier France last week, Dr. Susan Willson of St. Lawrence University presented information about her study of Birdsbesafe® cat collar covers during the International Conservation Biology Congress. Her poster session was entitled, "Birds be safe: Can a novel cat collar reduce avian mortality by domestic cats (Felis catus)?" This study was previously published as a journal article in Global Ecology and Conservation Journal.
The international congress "addresses conservation challenges" from around the globe, while also reporting on new research in conservation. Dr. Willson's presentation will of course help Birdsbesafe products become better known, globally, and we are very excited. In her research paper, she wrote: "...the conservation implications are clear: if owners of outdoor cats choose to use the Birdsbesafe® CCs [collar covers], a significant factor in the decline of songbird populations would drop precipitously."

Hello from Birdsbesafe headquarters in Vermont. It's a hearty few degrees above zero at noon-time, here, and we are thinking about Birdsbesafe company's spring colors!
It's nice to think about bird-saving cat fashionwear on a cold winter's day. Here's the spring color line-up!

Birdsbesafe company's invention story was featured on the Good News Network this week. Welcome to their many readers... and listeners. The story was highlighted in their podcast, too. Great!
People love our invention story! One bird-lover, Nancy Brennan, stopped her own cat's bird hunting, using knowledge of bird vision and an inspiration that if birds could see bright colors around a cat's neck, maybe the birds would gain enough time to fly to safety. It worked! And it worked so well, that she decided to promote the product for the good of birds in backyards everywhere!

When you put a Birdsbesafe collar cover onto your cat, it is held on by a breakaway cat collar. The Birdsbesafe cover is made of fabric and shaped like a tube, open at two ends. The cat collar goes inside it, and buckles both onto the cat.
