Did you see our Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover in the June/July issue of Country Woman magazine? We have been enjoying the attention our product is getting with cat owners across the U.S.
We also enjoyed some publicity in a TV feature in the Netherlands, (link coming soon), and in FarmShow magazine from the U.S. It takes a global village to publicize our bird-saving device, and we appreciate every one of the mentions and features that Birdsbesafe receives!
A few miscellaneous notes, before our holiday starts.
1) Shipping is limited over the holiday period from July 3 until July 7. Regular orders placed after 8 a.m. July 3 will ship out, First Class Mail, on Monday July 8th. Thank you!
2) We should remind our friends in the UK and EU that your country may assess customs fees, including a significant fee for the customs processing itself, and you are responsible for these fees before you receive your package.
We understand this is not a good condition, and we are working towards having outlets for our product within your country. Check our "in stores" list here, and scroll down to see EU country availability.
We appreciate all the people that contribute to making our products in the U.S.! Happy holiday to those of you celebrating in the U.S. this week. And thanks to all our global cat-owning friends--you are making an increasingly large difference with bird protection! More news soon!

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."
