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.

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.
