    Our cat caught a baby bird of some sort...can anyone help me post a pic of it so it can be identified...it seems to be unharmed and eating and drinking well but we don't know what to do with it.

    THANKS

    Honestly, it looks like a chicken to me!! Does it act "chicken-y"?

    I agree with the last two posts. I believe it is a chick and your cat grabbed it from someone nearby you more than likely. I would try asking your neighbors if they might be missing a chick. [​IMG]

    It does act like a chicken and we have driven around looking for its owners. The only two families in the area that have chickens are not missing any chicks. Is there any chance it's a turkey or something else wild?

    We have only had it two days and it is already following us and wanting to roost on us. Does anybody have an idea how old it is and what we should do with it? If it helps it does look like it has some feathers that are not opened yet.

    THANKS
