Poor baby bird

Late last night we had a “look what the cat dragged in” moment. She brought in a baby bird. I am talking so young that it barely had pen feathers. This poor little barely hatched creature in the mouth of the cat, who looked so smug. Great hunting skills, stupid, the poor thing has no defenses.

So S got the bird from the cat to see that it was still alive. It had a little wound on its neck but it was alive. So we put it in a box to keep it warm. I really thought it would die. I just didn’t want to put it outside, in the cold rain, to suffer until the end. So we kept it warm and locked it safe away in the front hall.
