About

            THE CAT COLLAR FOR BIRDS!

COMFORTABLE FOR CATS... GREAT FOR BIRDS!
COMFORTABLE FOR CATS... GREAT FOR BIRDS!

Billions of birds are killed every year by domestic cats. As cat owners are well aware, keeping them from injuring and killing birds is a daunting task.  It’s in their DNA. But ChirpOn has developed a unique and effective cat collar that gives birds a big advantage, and lets cats go about their tasks unaware that the unobtrusive collar is greatly hampering their success.

The effectiveness of the collar is based on the extended vision range of birds.

BIRDS HAVE BEEN ENDOWED BY EVOLUTION WITH SPECTACULAR COLOR VISION!
BIRDS HAVE BEEN ENDOWED BY EVOLUTION WITH SPECTACULAR COLOR VISION!

Birds see colors that we do not know exist. They may see brilliant plumage on a potential mate where we see a light color, if any. And they see ultra violet light when we can't. Their vision cones have unique oil droplets that further enhance color vision.  This special vision serves them well in finding mates, and food such as UV light reflecting fruits and berries that reflect colors only they can see.

CATS ARE UNAWARE OF THE BIRD DEFLECTING COLLAR.

With our specially formulated and manufactured silicone appendages, the ChirpOn collar utilizes these unique vision aspects to alert birds as a cat stalks. The appendages are designed for flexibility to add bird startling movement to the brilliant ultra violet reflectivity. That's good, but we also had to ensure that pets are comfortable and unbothered by the collar. Our cats wouldn’t have it any other way.

 A year of research, fabricating and testing

After more than a year of research, CAD design, 3D prototype printing, and field testing, we developed the collar that exceeded our goals: the ChirpOn Cat Collar for Birds! 

While simple in appearance, the silicone appendages utilize a special liquid base imported from Germany.  A high pressure $6,500 custom die is required to fabricate the individual pieces.

The bamboo fiber is organic and naturally soft. It makes a great collar.

                  Keeping cats happy

 We were challenged by how to attach the appendages when there are so many different types and sizes of cats. To solve this, we added a series of grommets to the size adjustable collar. Once it is easily fitted to the cat, the appendages can be quickly attached. To make the collar frictionless, the appendages have round bases allowing the collar to adjust to the cat’s position as it lies down, rolls around, or walks. The silicone is medical and food grade because we know there are some naughty cats out there somewhere that will try to bite them!

              Safe, comfortable & effective

The appendages have high integrity yet flex with gentle pressure. The small bell makes just enough sound to not be bothersome and is silver plated to further reflect light. For additional safety, we added a quick release clasp in case a wayward cat gets caught on a tree branch. The entire collar weighs a mere 6 ounces, or 170 grams.
