Birds Be Safe collar
Ginger goes outside once a day, anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours in our fenced yard. Since we have had this collar cover on our cat she hasn’t killed one bird. http://www.birdsbesafe.com/
Our first winter here I began feeding the birds, I mean there was a birdbath already here so I needed to, right?
Once winter was over Ginger wanted to go outside again. I let her out the first day and she came back with a bird! Eek, I was horrified. I should have thought that through.
I had a friend who had Birds Be Safe collar covers on all of her outside cats. I ordered one. I bought a break away collar for her to get use to wearing, but kept her inside until the collar cover arrived.
It’s worked, no dead birds! Ginger did leave us a shrew the other day, but this collar just lets birds know cats are after them, not rodents.
Cats are just doing what comes natural, now I can have a bird feeder AND let the my cat outside.
