We need a birthday cake! Birdsbesafe® company is ten years old! What a long way we have since beginning our efforts in March of 2009.
We invented this product to stop our own cat's bird captures, and when our idea worked to foil this highly skilled cat, we thought it was a real problem-solver that other cat owners could use to protect birds in their yards. And... this has proved to be so!
Here is a customer testimonial from a couple of weeks ago:
"Your collars have done so much to assuage our guilt of being bird lovers but also having two outdoor cats. Since finding your collars two years ago, the incidence of "gifts" being brought to our door has decreased by 95%! I may be giving our cats too much credit, but it almost seems like they have learned the futility of hunting birds (not my garden rodents). They are now more prone to sit on the back stoop idly watching the activity on and below the feeders. Thank you!"Receiving testimonials is as gratifying in year ten as it was in year one! I had in mind to write up some reflections at this anniversary mark, but I have to say: I'm too busy getting your products ready for your cats for this spring! At the very beginning, in 2009, I hoped that if the product worked well for other cats (and it did) that I could popularize its use around the world. It was a big mission for a one-product company, but we have done as much, or more, than we set out to do, and we're not done yet. Every day, business grows and that means more birds are protected from pet cats. Visit our list of stores that re-sell our products, or shop our products on Amazon or this website. We now welcome two BirdLife International members in Europe! And remember, when you protect birds in your yard, you become part of bird conservation globally. Do your part. If you can't keep your cat indoors, do protect birds in your yard!
Now, we have to get back to work, so you can enjoy the benefit of this Made-in-the-U.S. innovation!

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."

As we enter the holiday season, in 2020, it is remarkable how very unique 2020 has been around the globe. What remained the same, for us at Birdsbesafe company, was our devotion to helping cat owners save birds!

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."
