Birdsbesafe collar covers made front page news! Our local and regional newspaper, the Burlington Free Press, featured the story of our product's origin in a three-page cover story, complete with photos of three cats and me, the originator of the product. We recounted the story of the invention (which you can read on our About Us page), and we shared some information about how far the product has come, in our almost ten-year history.
Happy Thanksgiving! We are giving $1 off on two of Birdsbesafe cover designs until Dec. 21. That's a small thank you to our great customers!
The Thanksgiving holiday is almost here. It's a time to give thanks, at gatherings with family and friends. As a small business owner, I'm taking a moment to reflect and give thanks for all that I am grateful for.
Greetings from Vermont! My home's bird feeder went up for the winter season yesterday, after a spell of cold weather, sleet, rain and snow.
This year, it seemed like we went from a day in the 80s, to snow, almost overnight. I thought it was time to put the bird feeder up, and I was right! The birds have been swarming it and I have refilled it twice already. They are so hungry that the Black-capped Chicadees are sharing with the Blue Jays, and the White-breasted Nuthatch will zoom in over the head of the departing Red-breasted Nuthatch.
Our small company has marketed its own invention, the patented Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover, since early in 2009. Yesterday, we celebrated a milestone for our scientifically tested and increasingly popular product. Birdsbesafe® collar covers were listed as an anti-predation device on the website of the American Bird Conservancy, a national bird conservation group.
When we designed the Birdsbesafe® collar cover, we wanted you to be able to use any cat collar that you liked. We still think this is a good idea: your cat may do well with a style of collar that wouldn't work as well for a different cat. Some cats are smaller, larger, stronger, more active, or (sigh) Houdini like in their ability to lose cat collars.
Here are some pointers to help you pick a collar that will bring you success!
