Hello friends of cats and birds in the UK. We were just featured on the BBC's show "The One". Terrific! The feature showed a woman testing our products on her cats, and the result: No more dead birds!
Here's the link, viewable in the UK only in this format: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04jclr7
To watch it outside of the UK, try a virtual private network service, like Tunnel Bear and set your location to the UK.

Recently, Birdsbesafe products have been mentioned in two new articles penned by wildlife rehabilitation centers in California. Read one or both for a good overview of why the impact of cats on birds is an important wildlife issue.
The first article describes the use of "catios" and other ways to mediate the impact of cats on wildlife. It was written by staff of WildCare in Marin County.

Are you wondering how a cat collar goes inside of the Birdsbesafe® collar cover? We know it is a little hard to visualize. This description should help!
It’s important to understand that you need two parts in order to put the fabric Birdsbesafe® Cover on your cat. You need: the Birdsbesafe® collar cover and an interior cat collar (with the buckle).
The cat collar can be any brand of cat collar. Maybe your cat has one already? It should be a breakaway buckle type that releases under pressure for cat safety.
Here’s a photo of how the collar looks, inside the Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover.
You can adjust the fit of the interior cat collar in the normal way that most cat collars are adjusted—with the slider part, adjusting the overall length.

How far will cats roam when wearing our Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover? Two ideas came to mind: 1) farther than usual, to reach more prey or 2) less far than usual, as suggested by cat owners saying the cats seem to be "home more" when wearing Birdsbesafe® collar covers. So the research team at Murdoch University in Perth, Australia, tested these ideas with a field study where cats wore GPS devices, and either did or didn't wear Birdsbesafe® collar covers as well. What happened next?

Two new articles were published about Birdsbesafe® collar covers today! Here are the links.
In The Atlantic, an article called "How to Stop a Bird-Murdering Cat" by Conor Gearin
And... in Conservation Magazine, from the University of Washington, an article called "Rainbow Cat Collars Could Save Lizards and Birds" by Jason Goldman.
Orders are flooding in from both sides of The Atlantic, now, following further reporting in Spektrum in Germany.
