How to keep cats away from my budgies...?

I have a lovely large covered back porch with 2 quite large outdoor cages (10 budgies). I have been living here for a few years and never ever had trouble with cats, as there don't seem to be any around here. Then a few weeks ago we got new neighbours and of course, they have cats. I hear the cats prowling around on my back porch at night, banging around,squealing and fighting. So I am worried that this is going to cause havoc with my birds.

Dont get me wrong - I like cats and certainly dont want to hurt them, so was wondering if anybody knew of a way to keep them away. I dont want to say anything to the neighbours, they are entitled to their cats and it is quite normal for cats to wander - But what can I do ???

The cages are too large and heavy for me to bring in inside every night, so that is not an option.

    You could try buying some cat repellent spray - you can probably find some at a garden centre or pet shop. It's got a smell to it that shouldn't bother you or your birds, but that cats really don't like.

    Either that or maybe put some mesh round your porch so the cats can't get to the cages?
