Birdsbesafe, I admit, is still a small business, but we take very good care of all our customers. After four years of online selling, Birdsbesafe has a loyal and growing following. Every time I package up your order, I write "thank you" on the note that goes inside. And I mean it. I'm very grateful that other people are helping the birds stay safe from their cats. It's my moment to pause and be thankful.
Last week, it was hard to slow down to hand-write "Thank you". We were soooo busy. Why so busy, you ask? Because our website had ten times the normal numbers of visitors, leading of course to ten times as many orders going out.
It was a bit of a mystery, at first, what was going on.. but it turned out that long-time customer Liz Gilbert had written up Birdsbesafe and shown her cat Clifford on her FB page. Liz Gilbert is also known as Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat Pray Love and portrayed by Julia Roberts in the movie of the same name. She has been a customer for about 18 months now. Liz' full blog post is here with the title: Question of the day: Is your cat a murderer? I would like you to meet Clifford.
I haven't had the pleasure of meeting her. And no, she's not my cousin's cousin's in-law's neighbor or anything. She tried Birdsbesafe and found it works. And she sure writes a nice endorsement with her sparkling prose.
Facebook really made her words (and cat photo) travel. Thanks!

We really enjoy hearing from you about your successes with Birdsbesafe® collar covers on your cats protecting birds in your yards. Here's just a sampling of some recent emails that we have received! We appreciate every one of them.
Thanks for caring about cats and birds.
"We love your product, it’s amazingly effective…not a single caught bird since we’ve started using the collar covers. Wish all cat owners who let their cats outside knew about these."

Today, in Vermont, we are past our peak foliage color display, and the first snow fell in the White Mountains last night in nearby NH. Many species of birds have already migrated through, on their way to wintering locations to the south.
A few weeks ago, we saw this unidentified Thrush species, with a few other birds, grazing over a period of days as they fed for the long flights to come. And today, there were Dark-eyed Juncos and a small flock of these Sparrows.

UPDATE: Oct. 20. We are seeing slow shipping times for individual packages to Australia and New Zealand. If your tracking shows no change for a week, be reassured your packaging is still traveling towards you, but slowly.
The postage cost is very high, and the shipping times too slow. More news, as we know it.
