Aluminum foil would work too, and wouldn't be quite so harsh I've known people who used foil to prevent cats and dogs from hanging out in areas they'd prefer them not to.

I still think a safe height for the cage, with nothing nearby the cats can use to get near the bird, is the best option. Keats' cage is up on a bookshelf. I even set up 'obstacles' that crashed the first few times the kitties tried to get near. Now they never even try.
