So today my cat brought back a baby bird (I don't know what kind it is) in her mouth. On inspection of the bird: there was a gaping cut where the cat's teeth had been, and there was yellowy-orange stuff oozing out of it from (near) the stomach area. So I decided that I would try my best to save it, regardless of my little knowledge of birds.
Now it's in a cardboard box lined with tissue, newspaper, and a few leaves, under a lamp that gives off a little bit of heat. I've fed it water and a bit of mashed oats, which it has accepted and NOT regurgitate it . I've also tried to stop the blood and oozy-stuff by stuffing some cotton wool underneath and at the cut. It's been gasping for air for a while, and every so often if would readjust itslef into a new position. It's also opened it eyes slightly, very breifly, then closed them again.
The bird is very young: tranlucent pinky-yellow, and you can see all the internal organs through the skin. It has spots of feathers (about 3-4 sprouts). It's got a very weak neck and it just seems underdeveloped.
Please please please help me!! I don't want the little guy to die!!!
