Cats are a problem.

I lost my dog ( Molly ) last year and decided to try encourage hedgehogs into my garden. I visited all my neighbours to ask them to create a hedgehog highway. I have always had lots of visiting birds but now I keep getting cats coming through the holes which I created for the hedgehogs, which are scaring the birds off. 
What can I do to keep cats away ? I am not ready for another dog. Can I have some advise please.. 😁

    Oh no it isn't. You claimed your pound last time OP posted!  :)

    Make a tunnel leading from the hedgehog holes ... cats don't like going into tunnels but hedgehogs don't mind

    something a bit like this, big enough for hedgehogs but not too big.  Even better if you can make one which has a right-angled bend in it.  That'll keep the cats from using the 'hedgehog gateways'.
