My father in law would giggle himself silly seeing that, he hates squirrels and would applaud the invention. I shouldn't laugh really because I like them, but it actually was a bit funny. :oops: awwww poor thing. :lol: I suppose it is better than the air riffle or the shot gun. :x

Perasonally I'd like a pair of cat-ballistae inside each fence to be a cat-forwarding service to the other neighbour. It would have an auto-miaow warning of arriving cat like a Stuka. The RSPCA might not agree.

Assuming you have pointed verticals, I suspect it can walk along the top rail, depending on how far down from the top it is.

It probably depends on the cat, and you could plane the top edge of the top rail at an angle - which would also make the fence last longer by shedding water better.

I suppose a really dedicated cat may walk along the top of the verticals.
