My cat caught a bird today and although we managed to get the cat to drop the bird and brought the cat inside, the bird hopped away and through a tiny gap in the fence and we now have no idea where the bird went, we've looked everywhere in the garden, although I know its probably hiding somewhere.
Our worry now, as the bird looked like a fledgling, is that the cat is going to catch all of them if there is a nest nearby. We have kept her in the rest of today, but we're not sure what to do next? Do we keep her in the next few days, incase there is a nest nearby and they are learning to fly?
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
