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!

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!
