We at Birdsbesafe® LLC enjoy a lot of attention from the cat-and-bird loving public. You may enjoy catching up on reading about us in these recent stories!
Of course, we remain very happy that the BBC covered our product in a feature on "The One Show", a popular variety show in the U.K. You may have a hard time viewing this video in the U.S. unless you use a "virtual private network" (VPN) with a UK IP address. It's worth the time, if you are interested in seeing a cat owner who tested our product and found it stopped her two cats from catching birds. We do wish that the BBC reported had mentioned our product by name! (Using a VPN is legal and can be done for free at sites like Tunnel Bear.)
For simpler U.S. viewing, please check out our new promotional video on Youtube here!
We continue to collect new testimonials and will be updating the Feedback page very soon!

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."
