Hello friends of cats and birds in the UK. We were just featured on the BBC's "The One Show". Terrific!
Here's the link, which can be viewed only in the UK in this format (see end of post for viewing instructions, outside of the UK): http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04jclr7
The video is a lovely segment, which profiles Birdsbesafe® cat collar covers as one way to protect birds. A consulting pet expert, Sara Ellis, supplied a cat owner with our Birdsbesafe® collar covers for her two avidly bird-hunting cats to use. After a month of wearing them, the cat owner reported that she had found "no more dead birds" during the entire time.
The cat owner did remark that the cats "felt silly" wearing them, but this seems like it is not really a barrier to using Birdsbesafe® products. Cats, generally, find our products comfortable and non-restrictive to all their favorite cat activities. We think cats are cool with them. If the neighbors think the cats look silly, one can always explain about the merits of protecting birds. And, we think the cats look regal and festive.
We are glad for this great reporting. The narrator never mentioned Birdsbesafe® collar covers by name, but we assure you: those were Birdsbesafe® brand products. We recognize our patented products when we see them, that's for sure!
We have had happy cat-owning Birdsbesafe customers in the UK since 2009, so we are sure you will have the same great results with our bird-saving product as we see on this side of the pond. Just order online from our website store.
To view the video outside of the U.K., use a "virtual personal network", which is legal software that associates your computer with an ISP in the U.K. Examples include: "Tunnel Bear" -- and such tools work well and are often free. Google it for more information, please. Thanks!

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.
