Hello,This email came today, and I thought I would share it with you. "Dear Nancy,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."(signed ...)
We appreciate the comments. Spread the word and save the birds!

Results of a scientific field study, led by Univ. of Exeter's Dr. Robbie MacDonald, were published in the journal Current Biology this week."Fitting Birdsbesafe collar covers reduced the numbers of birds captured and brought home by 42% but had no discernible effect on mammals."
And, the research paper characterized it: "Birdsbesafe is a colorful collar cover that works as a visual warning, increasing the visibility of cats to potential prey animals with color vision. It exhibited pronounced effectiveness in reducing killing of birds, and more generally, prey with good color vision, including herpetofauna."

As we enter the holiday season, in 2020, it is remarkable how very unique 2020 has been around the globe. What remained the same, for us at Birdsbesafe company, was our devotion to helping cat owners save birds!

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."
