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!
Our cat-owning customers are our bird conservation heroes. It’s the cat owners who fasten the colorful collars around their cats’ necks. We are advancing bird protection goals together.
The scientists and volunteers who have studied the product have verified the product's effectiveness, but it is you, the customer, who makes the choice to protect birds from your cats.
Cat owners are wise to take responsibility for their cats' impact on wildlife, particularly birds. Birds are under increasing environmental pressures and their numbers are dropping. There 100 million or so pet cats in the U.S. and while we only have estimates of the toll that cats take on birds, the “low” estimates are in the millions of birds.
Together, we are making a difference in songbird populations around the globe.
Our company’s top-most goal in 2020 is to have ever-widening availability of the product, so that it can do the most good for bird conservation. Our "In Stores" page lists places you can shop for the product today, and of course, you can shop on this website.
In 2020, we are looking for an elegant way to vastly expand that list, because you, the cat owners, want us to do so. We especially hoping to have new options soon for the UK and Europe. Stay tuned.
And, as always, thanks for caring about cats and birds.

As we continue to journey through this pandemic year, we send well wishes to all our cat-owning and bird-protecting friends, here and abroad. Here's the latest information from Birdsbesafe headquarters in Vermont.
Earlier in the pandemic, our US First Class Packages were slowed by traveling by ship rather than airplane, but this situation seems to have been resolved. (Thank you to our patient customers who waited on deliveries!) See country details in full blog post, please.

More inventory will arrive for our website listings on July 21. We apologize for the occasionally low inventory levels this season, but the pandemic has slowed the supply chain.
The good news is that we always have Birdsbesafe collar covers available for you! Thank you for your patience if you are waiting on a specific color or pattern.
