Here's Lou, not hiding in the purple flowers, because he's wearing the bright colors of Birdsbesafe cat collar covers. This photo, which came from a customer recently, sums up how our products work:

We offer a variety of breakaway cat collar styles and brands. We're always testing and looking for any new cat collar developments from the bigger pet product companies. Here are thoughts, at present, to help with your collar decision.
Remember: A Birdsbesafe cat collar is tubular in shape, and is held on by a cat collar. Your Birdsbesafe cover falls off in an emergency when the breakaway buckle releases.

We've seen Canada geese flying overhead several times this week, migrating, and the local temperatures hit 60 F! Our Vermont office is surrounded by beautiful woods, but with the warm week we've just had, the forest floor is no longer white with snow. We lost all our snow cover--what little there was. Very disconcerting, as January and February were record-breaking warm months, and March seems to be of the same mind.
But we were already "thinking spring" for customers, cats, and birds, so here is a little news from the bird-saving headquarters at Birdsbesafe LLC.

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?

We shared a cup of coffee and conversation with syndicated radio show host, Ray Brown, on Ray Brown's Talkin' Birds yesterday. He has a New England-based show, with interesting and important guests like David Sibley, bird field guide author/illustrator. Yesterday, Ray spoke with me about the Birdsbesafe® cat collar cover, and you can listen to the podcast here: It's at 8:36, the middle of the segment. Thanks, Ray. Nice chatting with you!
