CatBib

If I didn’t know better I’d swear this was something from the pages of The Onion but unfortunately I think it’s the real deal. Worried about your cat catching birds? Strap a neoprene bib around it’s neck so it can’t actually strike them. Or better yet, don’t get a pet that’s genetically programmed to hunt… If this looks like the answer you’ve been looking for you can pick them up …
