It's raining cats and dogs in Vermont today. And it's cold. The migrating birds are just beginning to return to our region, but spring seems to be waiting a little longer than usual to arrive. Or maybe it just seems late because we have had snow on the ground since October and we're all ready for flowers to pop up. Just as soon as the snow goes away.
All of which reminds us that spring arrives to different areas of North America and Europe at different paces. (Not to mention arriving 6 months later down under.) Wherever you are, when the songbirds are plentiful in your yard and the weather is nice for cats to spend time outdoors, your feathered friends are at risk of being caught by your cat. Try our products this year!
We have a ten-year track record of successfully protecting birds from cats. Our product has been studied in field studies, confirming how well it works. It also has been tested in backyards all over the United States and Canada for ten years. We can assure you that the product succeeds from Alaska to Florida, from Maine to Hawaii. In Canada, the product is very popular, and we also have a wide group of cats wearing it from Iceland to the UK to France and Belgium, Switzerland and more.
We have satisfied cat owners all over North America, in cities, suburbs, on ranches or in the desert climes. Scientists may still be collecting more data for their studies in some locations, but as the makers of Birdsbesafe cat collar covers, we can tell you that the product works uniformly well in the northern temperate climates. Thanks for caring about cats and birds, and happy spring!

We are grateful for the loyalty and dedication of our sewing partners, who have sewn our products ever since 2015. Our products are made in the United States, and they always have been. It is a decision of ours to support American manufacturing, and to support the fair compensation of the sewing professionals whose hands guide our products through the sewing process. We rely on their superb professional sewing capabilities in order to bring you a beautiful collar cover to help protect birds -- and to dress up your cat in an attractive way.
Fabric is the main "ingredient" of our product. Over the years, fabric prices have increased. Today, we raised the price of our product. It was our first price increase since 2013. We needed our prices to better reflect our actual costs. We hope you will understand and appreciate that it was an overdue adjustment.

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."
