The check discussion has been fascinating, and I hate to end it, but I have a new stupid question.
When I got home from the grocery store tonight, I saw a pigeon sitting next to my front door. I tried to shoo it away, and noticed that it seems to be injured.
So, what do I do with it? I know that if I do nothing, the problem will have *ahem* resolved itself by morning. (we have several outdoor cats in the neighborhood) but the thought is making me a bit upset. I know that animals die, and other animals eat them, but it doesn't usually happen on my doorstep
OTOH, I'm not willing to spend the money to take it to an emergency vet. If it were hale and whole, I'd be shooing it and cursing its existence.
Is there anything I can do with this poor thing?
