    Hi. Is it possible to keep roosters where you live? If so I know Rhode Island Red roosters a very territorial. He would let the cat know its not o.k. and the cat may learn to avoid the hens. If thats not an option a fence with an electric wire on top may be the next option. I hope the cat stays away.
