This email came today, and I thought I would share it with you.
I was getting so desperate about the number of birds my cat was killing. She was bringing in at least one forlorn, broken bird a day and I was beginning to hate and resent her -it felt like I was luring the birds to their deaths by putting feeders in the garden.
I wanted to believe that something as simple and cheap as your big red ruff was going to be my solution ....but was very sceptical about it - it seemed too easy.
But since it has arrived - and she doesn't mind a bit about wearing the thing - she has brought in just one bird (four rats, actually, but this ruff is not designed for rodent safety I know).
It has been fantastically effective, Nancy. It has entertained the neighbours as well!
For the sake of British birds, I wish more people knew about it here."
We appreciate the comments. Spread the word and save the birds!
