Keep your cat away from birds to reduce the chance of a feathery visitor becoming lunch for a marauding cat. Cats are natural predators of birds, and even the most spoiled feline will attempt to catch them if the opportunity presents itself. It can be both disheartening and guilt-inducing to discover that one of the birds you’ve drawn to the yard has fallen victim to a cat, especially if the feline in question belongs to you. Fortunately, there are steps to take that will repel the animals from areas that wild birds frequently visit. Please follow the below steps.
Position bird feeders, nesting boxes and baths a distance of eight to 10 feet from vegetation and buildings that would allow cats to launch a sneak attack.
Place chicken wire around the bases of bird feeders, bird baths and the poles that you mount bird houses on. The wire must be at least four feet high to be effective.
Spread animal repellant granules around areas where cats tend to hide when stalking birds.
Install a motion-activated sprinkler system to frighten away approaching felines.
Invest in an ultrasonic outdoor cat deterrent, which is motion-activated and emits high-pitched sounds that are unpleasant to cats.
