I was out walking in the garden and I realised my Cat was staring at something. When I went closer it was a brown pigeon who was pretending to be dead. I picked it up of course. I don't know whats wrong with it, it looks a bit small, so i'm thinking it fell out of its nest. It can't fly but I checked for injuries and found none. I've put it in a cage and given it water and food. I wanted to take it to the vet but I can't right now because it's late. I don't know what else I can do, it looks a bit sickly and keeps on falling asleep.
I don't want it to die.
I've rescued a few pigeons in my life too, including one my cat attempted to kill.
It could be a bit traumatised. Try to keep it in a cat-proof area. Do you have a court-yard?
I kept one in my court-yard, put some water and seeds for it and after a few days it flew away. I was convinced it would die so I asked Allah swt to take it quickly, but Allah swt had other plans and eventually, it recovered.
If it's been traumatised by your cat, it may just need a few days of peace to recuperate. Pigeons I've noticed like to shelter so perhaps find a box that it can step into when it wants to rest.
