Just dropping this into the problem solving forum, so it doesn't get lost in the debate.

Havent any experience of it, so cant comment whether it actually works. But the reviews seem to suggest it does. Cheap, unobtrusive, and can keep cats out, or in, depending on your viewpoint.

    We already have some on top of some of our fences. The neighbouring cats delicately place their feet, either side of the spikes, and continue walking along the fence! Doesn't stop any cat here from entering or getting out of garden.
    Reading the description of these ones, they don't have the gaps for cats to put their paws in.  I'd certainly be interested from anybody who has this exact type as I'd need to invest in 330 feet of the stuff to to all the fences.

    I have some of the Cactus brand ones, KT...which for the best part work great and have put a stop to the cats using the fence as a kitty highway. 

    I will post a few pictures when I get in.

    An electric fence really isn't going to go down well with my neighbours in my little terrace. One person on my street has put chicken wire along the entire edge of her fences. A bit like this below but not as neat.

    I think for my local army of felines, it would make them even more determined to find a gap. They would start tunnelling, designing parachutes or building abseiling equipment.

    I'd hate seeing that on the fence if I lived next door😣

    Sometimes people get desperate. The couple had young children.

    How about something like in the photo but replaced by bungee cords.  Little darlings land on them and get fired back to where they came from.  Just an idea. :)
    Love it. Had me laughing out loud.

    @Fire - I can see the chicken wire stopping their cats getting out, but not stop cats getting in.
