HELP! I found a small pigeon in my backyard and grabbed it before my cat got a whiff of it.

HELP! I found a small pigeon in my backyard and grabbed it before my cat got a whiff of it. I have it in a cat carrier cage, but now I don't know what to do with it. Any advice on what I should do or how I should care for it? I put a little bowl of water and a bowl of oats in the cage. I kind of want to keep it until it can fly and then I will let it go. I can't put it outside because my cat will for sure kill it. I am not willing to go far away to drop it off somewhere and I am not taking it to an animal rescue place, it's just a pigeon after all and if my cat got it I wouldn't be that upset, I just feel bad for it, but I have no idea what to do now.

    Oh no, is that a wild animal outside unsupervised? Better catch it and put it in a cage.

    How about you just kill it, since your cat has already killed 100, what's one more? Its why I bait my land for house cats, when I catch them in the trap, they take a trip to the pond, I smoke a joint, come back, remove the cage from the water and leave the body for the mountain lions/ coyotes. Hopefully someone in your area has the same idea.

      My cat takes care of the mice and little rabbits in our garden. Did you think your words made you sounds badass or something? They actually made you sound like a homosexual.

        I'm simply saying its pointless to care about one bird when your cat kills 100. Just like its pointless for me to trap outdoor cats because for every one I take care of an entire litter is born nearby, but its made a considerable difference in the amount of birds I see on my land.

          I live in the suburbs and there have been stray cats around here going back decades, I have seen no reduction in birds, I think that's just a reddit meme by the veterinary industry to get business. As far I know my cat only catches fledglings and next year I am going to keep birds from nesting around my house.

    Here is a picture of it, the general consensus at my house is that it is some sort of pigeon but we aren't sure. I put some bird seed in there and he is eating it, so I am happy. Sorry for potato quality I took the picture with my laptop.

    Rare moment of clarity for the toxobrained catgay. Here's an idea: keep your stupid cat inside.

      How about you go frick yourself, I might go give the thing to the cat just to spite you.

      It looks like it's almost old enough to eat on its own. Give it a mix of seeds and some water, let it chill somewhere your cat can't get to it. I think you'll find it to be docile and i've even heard stories of wild fledglings growing up to be hand tame with the human that saved them after being released.

      That isn't the bird, I found that image online, but the bird I have does not have that baby bird look, it's like a teenager if that exists. Honestly I am only 90% sure it's a pigeon, it seems a bit small but I don't know what else it could be. I think I have some bird seed around and I will keep an eye on it to see if it eats, if not i will make some sort of paste and try tp feed it that way. It is very docile like you said and is just chilling in the same spot and hasn't explored the cage at all.

      take it to animal rescue place

      I am not putting that much effort in.

        There are lots of subspecies of pigeons and doves. Might be a mourning dove if you're in NA, or a Eurasian collared dove if you're in the EU. They'll eat almost any kind of seeds, good luck anon you're doing a nice thing.

          I'm in the Midwest, do you know if there is anything else I should put in the cage, like a stick or something? I also have straw that we use in our chicken coop, or is some old newspaper enough for the bottom?

        You guys are so obnoxious lol yeah obviously wild birds becoming used to humans isn't ideal but a bird can befriend an individual person. How is that a problem if said bird would have died without help? It's not like a single dove is going to raise a whole new population of food conditioned birds because it got handled by a human

      It seems a bit bigger than that, and I don't see the parents anywhere outside, but I am keeping an eye out for them. We don't have a lot of pigeons around here so I don't even know where it came from.
