Birdsbesafe® cat collar covers are featured in the March/April issue of Pacific Standard magazine, a popular west coast magazine.
You can read the Pacific Standard article by Peter Andrey Smith here, and it's more than just an article: There is also a video of "flying cats" by published pet photographer, Julie Christie.
She used a technique of gently dropping a cat from a few feet in the air (onto a soft surface, harmlessly) and photographing the cat mid-fall. It's safe for the cat and results in some unusual photographs!
You can find the entertaining Flying Cats photo-shoot video on the same link as above, just click through and scroll down! Here's a real life cat, named Watson, leaping downward in his daily activities in Colorado. His owner is very happy with how few birds this active hunter catches now.

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."
