We moved here from NJ and our dogs had 1/2 acre fenced play area. We did not have the birds of prey that are in TV. I had to change my way of thinking. The dogs are allowed in the bird cage if one of us is in the cage. Our lanai is enclosed so they have free run of the lanai. It is definitely different for the dogs but no more snow!

Why would you put an invisible fence in the courtyard?

I hope they stay where you saw them. People complain about dogs pooping on their lawns, these are 100 times worse than dogs.

We returned after Thanksgiving and found this on our kitchen floor. Can only think it got in when we had the door to the garage open to get some air flow on a nice day. We also have a loooong blacks snake in our back yard as well as had a corn snake in our grill, presumably to get warm.

So, how did you get rid of them? I would probably use tongs, maybe two tongs.

It will not keep predators out.

It will not keep predators from the cat. Especially flying ones. Eagles, hawks, etc.

I know. I need ideas to protect from flying critters. The invisible fence is to keep MY cat in.

Absolutely will work for your cat. The birds scare me. I now have a 10 lb dog. I am totally nervous!
