How To Treat A Bird Attacked By A Cat


Finding a bird stunned on the ground may be sad, but it’s also an opportunity to help. Stunning is caused by trauma and shock. If you find a bird that’s been stunned, you can help the bird recover. Here are some basic steps:

If you find a stunned bird, it may have been attacked by a predator and be in shock.

The first thing to do if you find a stunned bird is take it to a wildlife rehabilitation center. The most important thing for the bird is to be treated for shock and parasites.

Unfortunately, if the bird was attacked by a cat or another animal, then it may not recover from the attack. If the bird does not recover within half an hour of being in your possession, then it needs medical care at an appropriate veterinarian’s office or wildlife rehabilitation center as soon as possible.

Place the bird in a cardboard box lined with paper towels.

Place the bird in a cardboard box lined with paper towels.

Make sure the box is big enough for the bird to move around in, but not large enough that it can fly out of. The sides of the box should be taller than your cat, so they can’t reach through and grab it again. If you have any old t-shirts lying around, cut them into strips and use them as rope to tie over both ends of the box so that there are no gaps where another cat could get in (or other predators). The top can be covered by a towel or piece of cloth secured with tape, string or wire twist ties if you are worried about keeping light away from your pet as well. It also helps if you place something soft inside like rolled up socks so they have something soft to land on when jumping down from their new home once recovered from surgery tomorrow morning!

Cover the box with a cloth so that it is dark inside, and place it in a warm but not hot location.

The bird will need to stay warm and dark, so keep the box covered with a cloth. Do not place the box in direct sunlight or near a draft. Also, do not place it in a location with excessive noise.

If you are able to find an injured cat that appears uninjured, you can try trapping it using an appropriate trap (such as an animal trap made for cats) and taking it to an animal shelter or your local Humane Society so they can make arrangements for its care.

In about half an hour, open the box and see if the bird has revived. If so, watch to see whether it can fly away.

After about 30 minutes, carefully open the box. If the bird is fully awake and alert, it may be able to fly away and continue on with its life. If it isn’t moving or doesn’t seem to hear you when you call out to it, however, it needs medical attention.

If the bird is still stunned after half an hour, it needs medical care.

If your bird is still stunned after half an hour, it needs medical care. A bird that has been attacked by a cat will likely be in shock and unable to fly or walk normally. If you can’t transport the bird on your own, contact a wildlife rehabilitation facility or veterinarian and ask them to help you move the wounded animal.

If your cat has injured another animal and it’s safe for you to do so, try picking up the injured animal and transporting it yourself (to prevent further injury).

Gently transport the bird to your veterinarian or a wildlife rehabilitation facility.

If your cat has attacked a bird, the best thing you can do is take the bird to your veterinarian or a wildlife rehabilitation facility. Don’t attempt to treat it yourself at home, as this will put both you and the bird at risk. If you don’t know where to take the bird, call around in your area until someone directs you to a veterinary clinic or wildlife center that handles birds. Do not bring a bird into a pet store unless they specialize in exotic animals—a regular pet store will not have the resources necessary for treating an injured wild animal.

Birds have delicate systems that can be harmed by attacks and need help recovering from shock

Luckily, birds are more delicate than cats and dogs. They can’t take the same amount of stress that a cat or dog might be able to recover from. A bird’s system is sensitive to noise, temperature, light, touch and even how you hold it. For example: if you were holding the cat or dog by their scruff they would not care but when holding a bird they will be in shock because they feel like they’re falling out of your hand at any moment because of how light they are compared to other animals so holding them properly is very important when trying to help them recover after an attack


Caring for any animal injured by a cat in this way is not easy. The best thing you can do is to get it help from people who have been trained to deal with shock and injuries. If the bird has broken bones or internal injuries, your veterinarian or wildlife rehabilitator can help it recover. Caring for birds and other animals attacked by cats is the kindest thing we can do.
