nice site! have a baby sparrow..brought in four days ago, by the building cat..which incidentally walks in and out of our home, and gets food here...
I rescued it and put him in basket and started feeding him boiled egg and applesauce mixture. It's been three days of that..and in the meanwhile, I am ashamed to admit, the cat caught him/her again. There was a crisis with a another cat, so i needed the basket to rush her to the vet. I put the baby sparrow in a shoebox and closed it with the lid, (there was a hole for breathing) the cat came in and caught it again. this time my husband rescued it. today he/she seems off food....what antibiotic would u prescribe.. I am told that if a sparrow has been in the cats mouth, it needs to be given antibiotics because of a bacteria in the cat's mouth that is fatal to baby birds...can i give it any soft fish which is cooked?
