You could have the best outfitted cat at the holiday gathering, if you like birds and want to protect them from your outdoor-going cat. Our Birdsbesafe cat collars use bright colors to warn birds that a cat is nearby. Songbirds see bright colors exceptionally well, and so can ID your cat from a great enough distance to have time to fly away to safety. I invented it, and it worked so well that we went on a mission to help birds all over the globe. We're Birdsbesafe, and now our patented products have been shown to reduce birds caught by 87% in a scientific study at St. Lawrence University.
Birdsbesafe products are enjoy a holiday surge of publicity this week. It began last week with Conor Gearin's reporting in The Atlantic online, which happened to coincide with an article in Conservation Magazine online, as well. Then The Atlantic article crossed the Atlantic ocean and was reported on in Germany, at moz.de and we're told to expect more German press soon. Wilkommen!
I'm being interviewed on Irish radio later this week, and will try my best not to ramble on. I'm excited. This has been a great week for spreading the word about how to save birds with bright colors. Our bright colors have been researched over 6.5 years!
One note: The press mixes up the issue of feral cats with a discussion of our product. Just so you know, we are not marketing a product for feral cats. We don't think it's suited to use by feral cats for many reasons. What we are doing is helping the approximately 60 million pet cat owners that let their cats outdoors curtail their cat's bird-hunting or come very very close to curtailing it. Easily, with no fuss. And as a bonus, their cats will look adorable!
Thanks for caring about cats and birds, and for spreading the word so we can all save more birds. Peace, Nancy

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."

Today, in Vermont, we are past our peak foliage color display, and the first snow fell in the White Mountains last night in nearby NH. Many species of birds have already migrated through, on their way to wintering locations to the south.
A few weeks ago, we saw this unidentified Thrush species, with a few other birds, grazing over a period of days as they fed for the long flights to come. And today, there were Dark-eyed Juncos and a small flock of these Sparrows.

UPDATE: Oct. 20. We are seeing slow shipping times for individual packages to Australia and New Zealand. If your tracking shows no change for a week, be reassured your packaging is still traveling towards you, but slowly.
The postage cost is very high, and the shipping times too slow. More news, as we know it.
