How Do You Keep
Cats Away From Birdfeeders?

If you feed birds and have discovered a successful way
to keep unwanted cats away
from your wild birds
please share via emailing info@losgatosbirdwatcher.com.

Customers feel powerless
when they look into their own private yards and witness someone else's free roaming
cat snatching birds off the
bird bath or feeder. There's a great need for a solution, so
we're soliciting your feedback.
