    Don't vets take in wildlife and pass it on to sanctuaries?

    That's what I did with a hedgehog I found in daylight in the middle of our road.

    It almost certainly won't survive. Shock normally causes them major problems.
    If my JR ever catches anything like that, I just let nature take its course. She had three mice and a pigeon last week.

    Our cats loose their collars and bells faster than we can replace them :sad:

    Bells are useless anyways - a cat can move stealthily enough so that the bell won't make a noise.

    I just let my cats be cats. In the last couple of weeks or so, I have been gifted with two pheasants and five rabbits along with the usual assortment of mice, voles and shrews. Poppy doesn't eat what she catches, but Lexi is rather partial to snacks-on-legs.

    Drown it, it's the only humane thing to do. You might be able to save the bird.

    And some wonder why wildlife is in such massive decline. Cats are far from the only problem but they do put a completely unnecessary pressure on wildlife
