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.

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!
