My cat got a bird, I thought it had died, but looking this morning, it is still alive. How can I care for it?

Asked by Tennis5tar (1255 points ) April 21st, 2009

What do I need to feed it? How often? It made it throught the night, so it must be pretty stong, because it was fairly chilly last night.

Crisis averted. I called the RSPCA to ask how I could care for it and they gave me a number so I could take it to my vet and they would pay for the treatment. Mr Birdy will hopefully be in tip top soon enough.

it’s nice that you care about the little guy. Good luck!

The vet called back and said he had a broken leg and also possibly a snapped nerve, making him paralysed. They couldn’t make it better, so they put him to sleep. At least he doesn’t have to suffer with it, I guess. Still sad though.

@Tennis5tar By bringing the bird to the vet, you made the end waaay easier and comfortable for it. He could have just laid there suffering til he starved. Yay for you! :)
