In reply to Alan.:
I have only just seen this thread. If a pigeon gets 'catted' then it needs antibiotics almost immediately. Cat saliva often contains pasteurella bacteria and that will result in the bird dying within maybe 48 hours. Wood Pigeons are far more highly strung than their feral cousins and often don't survive being captured and contained by humans. Alan referred to www.helpwildlife.co.uk and they have details of local rescue centres who are pigeon friendly. Thank you for giving it a decent burial. You might notice a lone wood pigeon hanging around for a few days. That will be its mate.
