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.

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.
