A thoughtful article on cat predation on birds appeared in Marin Independent Journal, California. There are good options for cat owners who want to reduce cats' impact on wildlife. It's a great article summarizing the alternatives for those who want to take responsibility for their pets. Any choice you can make in favor of protecting wildlife is a good step.
You may be inclined to try a window enclosure, an indoor cat lifestyle, or a harness for walking cats under human control. Birdsbesafe collar covers is available for those cat owners who prefer to let their cats roam outdoors.
Marin County California's Pacific Wildlife Care, a non-profit bird rehabilitator, was one of the first in the country to test the Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover--and approve of the results.
On the other side of the ocean, Birdsbesafe® products were mentioned on a Dutch TV show, here.
Also internationally, we note that the Iceland BirdLife International member organization has started to retail our products in Iceland.
It's a big world for bird-protecting. Thank you all for helping to spread the word to save the birds! If you let your cat roam outdoors, please try Birdsbesafe covers. They are highly effective, easy to use, and a cute eco-friendly solution!

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."
