Harry is a super-predator. Chipmunks are his prey of choice and I have great affection for these little squirrels. I have tried a lot of things to keep Harry from killing them; invisible fence with collar set to “Doberman,” pepper-based materials on the ground, rose canes in the paths and many stern talks.
After I purchased Catbib, Harry’s murder spree stopped. On a dime.
However, Harry almost had the last word. I had put his Catbib on my own release-type collar. I left Harry outside when I went shopping and when I returned, Harry had ditched the collar and bib. Everyone in the house looked for the bib an collar for over a week and finally found it. Harry had buried his bib in the garden. Completely covered it up. What better testimonial could you possibly get? He is wearing it again with one of your collars. Poor Harry. Foiled again!
Thanks for a life-saving product that Harry just hates!
This is Mushki! He is a bird catcher extraordinaire (It probably comes from his wild Siberain ancestry)!
Our neighbors have the most beautiful white doves living in their yard and Mushki has taken out two of them not to mention all the poor birds in our own garden. I searched the internet high and low for a solution and finally found the catbib. Even though we live in South Africa I ordered it immediately and the shipping costs were well worth it!
Mushki had no problem putting on his bib and doesn’t even seem to notice it. I am very glad to report that he has only caught one bird in the last two weeks where previously he was on two a day!! He is also much more visible to traffic around the house and I was able to write all my contact details in permanent marker on the back of his bib. Thanks for a great non invasive solution team!

Since putting CatBibs on my two cats last year, I am thrilled to report that neither has caught a single bird. What a wonderful, live-saving product this is. I am so grateful for the CatBib that I wrote about it my new book, Zooburbia: Meditations On The Wild Animals Among Us, just out from Parallax Press. The CatBib is mentioned in Chapter 16, “Peaceable Kingdom,” which is about my efforts to keep my pets from harming the local wildlife. Attached is a photo of Puck, who proudly wears his CatBib in Zooburbia.
Zooburbia is featured in the May 2014 edition of O: The Oprah Magazine as one of “Ten Titles to Pick Up Now.” It is my hope that my book will help spread the word about the CatBib far and wide, so together we can save the lives of more birds while allowing our cat friends to safely enjoy the outdoors.

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.
