    I managed to stop my cat from killing a sparrow; it flew away and flew right into the fence knocking it into shock. The poor little bugger blinks but does not move. For now I put it in the rabbit hutch were its shaded and protected from other animals and given it water in case its thirsty. I given the RSPCA a call but there service was useless so now I thought I’d come on here to seek advice.

    Am I doing the right thing? What can I do to help get the little chap flying again? I don’t think he’s seriously hurt and he’s not bleeding.

    Thanks

    Poor cat, give it back to him/her to play with.

    Drown it in a bucket of water and be done with it, the bird is cattle trucked by the sounds of it. Should of just let the cat kill it.

    A sparrow? For crying out loud let the cat penetrate it (with it's claws, I meant the claws).

    the most humane thing to do is to crush it under your foot or with a brick.

    More than likely too late.

    Brick + head is probably the quickest and most humane way :(

    Hold its head tight in your hand and crack its neck like a whip.
    Fastest, easiest and most humane.
    Its pretty inhumane to try and keep it going in the pain its in tbh.

    Kill both the cat and the bird, then at least it's fair.

    I'd actually do plastic bag --> brick ---> head ---> bin.
    Saves having to clean up the splatter.

    ohh well, after 30 minutes of letting him get over the shock in the hutch, I decided to carry the blanket out, which he then happily enough decided to fly away. Just proves how nice some of you guys are!!!

    you can delete this thread now.
