I have used the bib for over two years for my cat Lucy and it has almost eliminated her ability to catch birds.
I have also noticed that she tends to stay out for shorter periods when the bib is on. She had no problem with getting used to wearing it ( she was 3 years old at the time) and I take it off as soon as she comes inside.
Lucy has no difficulty with any activity other than stalking – she grooms, sleeps, etc and looks relaxed. I have put our phone number and the cat’s name on the back of the bib; all the neighbours know the cat and why she wears the bib.
Lucy is the poster cat for our local bird rehabilitation centre, which sells the bibs. As this cat does spend some time outside, having the bib has made all the difference for local bird populations.
Thanks so much for developing this simple and very effective method to reduce harm to birds.
