Ok, here's what you do: Drive around until you find a roadkill deer--roadkill anything else will also work, but the bigger, the better with so many Turkey Vultures in the area. Load the carcass into your car--I suggest putting a tarp down on the back seat first. Drive home and drag your roadkill vulture magnet to the area of your property that is furthest from where the cats are fed. Voila! Watch the vultures clear out while the cats eat in peace--at least for a couple of days until they polish off that deer.
Alternatively, you could set up an enclosed or covered feeding area, and hope that was enough of a deterrent to provide the motivation to move them on. With the Spring migration season beginning, it's likely that some of the Turkey Vultures in the area are simply stopping over on their way North. If that's the case, the number of vultures should begin to decrease on its own, although a couple will likely hang around as long as there's an accessible food source and nothing more recently dead near by.
