my grandmother found a pigeon that was limping on the sidewalk. She caught it (it apparently can't fly bc she caught it), put it in a cage in the dark, and now has asked me to "nurse it back to health". I've read about pigeons who are limping, pigeons with hurt feet, etc, etc. but I thought I might get more info asking a question myself. I have a small metal dog crate lined with newspaper, and I put it in my closet and covered it with an old towel. I want to help the bird but I have 3 cats who will for sure be very interested in it, and might try to bang on the closet door. Do pigeons die from stress like other birds do? I might be able to keep the cats away with an essential oil "fence". I live in Spokane, Wa, if that is of any importance. I asked my grandma to send a pic but ill probably have to see the bird myself to see what is wrong with it. I don't have the pigeon yet, I'll get it in a couple hours, maybe.
