A news story on All Things Considered on NPR Radio by Lauren Sommer discusses the toll on wildlife by free-roaming cats, and also describes the science study of Birdsbesafe cat collar covers, in a discussion with Dr. Willson.
A new multi-country study used GPS collars on cat to help establish the hunting cats' roaming patterns. They also collected prey animals returned home by the cat.
The reporter then discusses our own product, the Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover, with Dr. Willson, whose field study (published in 2015) validated our product claims of protecting birds from cats. Birdsbesafe cat collar covers are able to highly reduce the number of birds caught when cats wear them, by making the predatory cat more visible to birds.

Earlier in the pandemic, our US First Class Packages were slowed by traveling by ship rather than airplane, but this situation seems to have been resolved. (Thank you to our patient customers who waited on deliveries!) See country details in full blog post, please.

More inventory will arrive for our website listings on July 21. We apologize for the occasionally low inventory levels this season, but the pandemic has slowed the supply chain.
