Welcome to Birdsbesafe fans and friends down under. It's spring there and time to help protect birds from cats. Birdsbesafe orders have started arriving from those countries. Wonderful!We also got a special inquiry from Western Australia's Cat Haven and its director. Would we make a wholesale shipment of Birdsbesafe cat collars available to them? They promote: "caring, rescuing, re-homing, and raising awareness for cats" in their region, where stray cats are many. The Cat Haven does a wonderful job. Check out their video on their website if you want to be inspired. Their stray cat issue is a nationally important one: so important that there is even legislation about it. Cats must have chip IDs, I think, for example.And cat predation on birds is a burden in their environment, with so many stray cats.So, of course, we said "yes" to Cat Haven, but then we had a better idea: Send them some out-of-date fabric ruffs and keep the price really low, making a sort of donation/discount package. Off went the box of goods to Australia. We felt proud to help. Birdsbesafe ultimately would like to be in a great position to help more agencies and organizations. We still have our own growing pains to deal with (a-hem, we need some more revenue), but we were happy to help. It's a small world. Australian cats may be less likely to catch birds now.

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.
