Cat and Bird

Little sparrow that I rescued yesterday from the wrath of Miko was fine last night and first thing this morning in its cage in a spare bedroom but soon after started going downhill and died. I took photos after it died and could see some injury under its beak. Cats and birds sure do not mix. Missing this cute little bird.
Poor thing... I like how the cat is looking at the bird and the bird is looking the other way

@sugarmuser I felt bad for it. Thank you for your comments, Sharon. Miko is this one, the one that brought me this bird. Cats will be cats though.

One always feels bad when the rescue doesn't, turn out. so sad, but like you say, it's nature. Hans called me about a week ago or so when we still had morning frost. he had gone to the back of our house where his sheds are and where in the last few years we had some doves nesting under one of the roofs. you might remember the pictures I took. well, he saw a dove sitting on the interlocking stones beneath the nest. she didn't fly away when he approached her. later he found out she was protecting her young one who fell out of the nest. now he knew why she wasn't going budge. we kept watch. it went on for a few days. at one time she must've gone to find some food and Hans took the little dead bird away. sad, but she had to let go eventually. I took pictures of her sitting on the ground, but I didn't post any.

@bruni I did feel bad. I feel worse when she leaves the remains for me outside, birds and mice. Doves are amazing as they do watch their babies closely. Sorry the baby did not make it. Our cat caught a dove but did not injure it so put it outside and its parents waited on the fence and eventually that young dove flew with its parents. One good ending. We did not have Miko at that time or that dove would have died. I think this Sparrow was pretty young. Hans and you sounds like Dan and me as we will do what we can for anything in need. I took photos after this Sparrow died to see if I could tell why it died but did not want to post that photo either. I posted this one instead. Did you see my previous photo of it up close when I first got it? Nice to hear from you Bruni. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your story too. Always so nice to hear from you.
