We had the pleasure of meeting folks at the International Migratory Bird Day event held by the Birds of Vermont Museum. If you don't know the Huntington Vermont museum, it's a great place to see a remarkable collection of wood, hand-carved birds that represent most of the species found in Vermont.
For our day, we spoke to people about Birdsbesafe cat collar covers and how they work. Then we luckily met the reporter from the Burlington Free Press, Lynn Monty, who wrote a nice story on us. We don't have a link to it, but here is her opening sentence (which we found quite clever):
"Nancy Brennan of Birdsbesafe LLC, is trying to make sure that cats in our region don't end up looking like the infamous 'cat that caught the canary.'"
We really enjoyed meeting a wildlife rehabilitator, seeing the museum, chatting with folks, and meeting Bernd Heinrich, local expert bird biologist.

A news story on All Things Considered on NPR Radio by Lauren Sommer discusses the toll on wildlife by free-roaming cats, and then discusses the Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover with Dr. Willson, whose field study (published in 2015) validated our claims. 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!
