Here at Shadowlake Village we had a similar situation arise and while we haven't formally adopted any solution just yet, the amount of cat predation has been _dramatically_ reduced by adopting the cat bib. My own cat has found a way out of it after a month or two, so it may not be an effective tool for all cats, but most of the other cats have been wearing it quite effectively. And even though my cat is currently bibless, I have found the amount of his predation has gone down significantly since before I had him wearing it. The cats do look silly with them on, but they seem to adjust and it was worth helping out my neighbors that have the concerns about rodent predation which seems to be a slipperier slope about how people feel than bird predation which most people seem to want universally stopped. The bibs claim to only work with bird predation, but from personal experience I think this is patently false. If you want your cat to "mouse" and control the rodent predation, I would not recommend the bib... if you are trying to stop all predation, than go for it!
