  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi there. I've had an adult wild pigeon taking refuge in my back garden for the last 3 days. I'm guessing it was attacked by a cat as the large feathers on it's left wing have been torn off. It cannot fly, but is able to flap both of it's wings. I found it when I went out to water the garden...

    My pseudo-pet pigeon was attacked by a cat today, she managed to escape flying but was wounded. I can't see the wound itself because of the feathers, but she bleeds from a small spot on the chest. Little droplets fall every 10 or 20 minutes, depending on how much she moves. I started giving her...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum and would love some advice on what steps to take with this sick pigeon I have. I saw a cat chase a pigeon around my garden so I brought the pigeon inside. He feels very thin, has green watery poop and is resting on one leg only. I've called a few rescues but they are...

    I have a few questions in this thread that i would love some assistance with. First, while doing some yard work i found a baby white-winged dove huddled against my fence and shivering.

    As above really. At the point where they have left the nest but cant fly how do I stop cats getting them? I have just lost the baby born over Christmas, no signs of a struggle and he was almost able to fly.

    This fledgling ringneck dove was caught by a cat on Tuesdaymorning. It weighs about 200g. I have it on amoxycillin 20mg twice a day. The bird ate well the first couple of days and drank a lot of water. On Friday it started making weird movements with the neck, like adjusting food in the crop...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    LOCATION: Venice, California 90291 USA Yesterday, one of my cats brought in two live baby pigeons. He gave them to our new Lab puppy, seemingly as a welcome to the family gift. The cat was remarkably gentle with the birds, each having only a small tooth wound. They appear to be 10-12 days...

  12. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Four months ago I rescued a two week old pigeon from a train station. I nursed him to health, and now he flies around the house in a flight suit (awesome product btw). At about the same time I got a small kitten, who is now four months as well. The pigeon, kitten and my dog get along well, and...

I shooed it which startled the cat and the pigeon flew of in that moment of no attention. Later i found it on the first landing of our staircase. I reached out and the poor thing...

    Well, I'm back with yet the same darn dilemma. Evil stray cat hurt a young pigeon and while the last one I got from her recovered fully and was released I HIGHLY doubt this one will make it :( The side of its throat is torn barely missing the windpipe (I'm assuming...I can his trachea) yet its...
