How very upsetting. My neighbour's cat goes after my slow worms, but that's another story. I don't know if you're talking about a laurel hedge or a single specimen, but might it be feasible to put up some sort of prickly barrier (even barbed wire!) to stop the cat getting access to the nest? Shouldn't bother the blackbirds, they can fly!
