I sure do see your point.
BUT, I found the best way to keep neighbors cats out of your yard, is to get
one of your own.
After I got my cat and she grew up, she would wait outside just to defend
her turf. She had her own little place in the yard with sand in it for a
potty and after she came to live with us there were seldom any interlopers
that didn't leave without a butt kicking.
Yup, an occasional bird (very rarely, maybe three in as many years) got
caught, but that would happen anyway. That's a basic fact of nature. It's
not pleasant, but you can't fight it. Could those cats be coming in BECAUSE
of the bird population from your feeders? (just food for thought)
Now that we are thankfully living way out in the country this same kitty
still defends her turf, catches moles and meeces and earns her keep.
In the city, other people's pets can become a real nuisance. The neighbor we
had and his two huge barking dogs is one of the primary reasons for our
selling our home and getting out.
