What the Cat Brought in…

A cat surprised its owners by bringing in an entire bird’s nest and three live baby birds. Bella, a five-year-old tortoiseshell cat, deposited the nest in Vikki and Wesley Spencer‟s house in Taunton  just before midnight  last Tuesday, July 5. It  was  completely  intact  with  a  baby  goldcrest sitting inside it. Vikki  said:  “The  nest  just  looked  like  a  bit  of tumbleweed  lying  on  the  floor,  we  didn‟t  know what it was. While we were all looking at it Bella had gone out again and she came back with the two  other  birds  in  her mouth  and  just  dropped them on the floor. “She  looked  at Wesley  as  if  to  say:  „that‟s my nest,  what  are  you  doing  with  it?!‟  I  couldn‟t believe it.” Vikki  placed  the  nestlings  in  an  airing

cupboard  overnight  to  keep  the  birds warm  and  took them to RSPCA West Hatch Wildlife Centre near Taunton the next morning. Peter Venn, manager at RSPCA West Hatch, said: “Two of the birds  sadly  died  but  one  of  them  is  doing  very well.  I‟ve  not heard of a cat doing anything  like  this before but  that‟s not  to say it hasn‟t happened!” The  remaining  goldcrest  will  be  cared  for  at  RSPCA  West Hatch until it is old enough to be released into the wild. The  goldcrest  is  the  UK’s  smallest  songbird,  with  adults standing  just 9cm high. These birds are dull green above and buff  white  below  with  a  distinctive  orange  or  yellow  crown stripe. It is found almost wherever there are trees and bushes, especially conifers.
