A small fluffy bundle...

I walk to work (about 10 minutes) and this morning spotted a small fluffy bundle on top of a wall. I didn't really have time to check it out, but it played on my mind all day.

I checked it out on the way home, and it's a dead cat sad I work shifts (which is why I'm posting 12 hours after I first saw it) and have tomorrow off. I need advice on what to do:

a) Nothing
b) Go back with a cardboard pet carrier and rubber gloves and contact the local vet in the morning
c) Call the emergency vet and/or some kind of local council department

I don't think I'm heartless enough for option a. I was incredibly grateful to the stranger who took my cat to the vet when he was run over even though he didn't pull through. Option b seems logical but I would have to store it in the dustbin as I don't really want it in the house, but that seems disrespectful. Option c might be the proper way to do things, but I'd like to know that the owner knew what had happened.

I don't have dc's so am free to go with the MN verdict! Thank you thanks

it really does look like a real cat from your photo. I had to ring the RSPCA last night about a baby magpie in a trap. They were great but it was all legal. I asked what would happen to the baby magpie - "It will be dispatched". Caught because of all the other wild birds nesting in the area, by a bird lover. Magpies raid the nests of other birds. Difficult.

I just read this on the mumsnet round up email and I have to say I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. Having said that, those darn toys look so real these days I can see how it may have fooled you!

Lovely thread thanks, purple you are a lovely person and (even if unintentionally) a brilliant comedian! grin grin

I just saw this in active convos and have given myself a headache trying (and failing) not to laugh.

I have just annoyed my husband by howling with laughter. I couldn't even explain why I was laughing so hard. My face is soaked.

Thank you.

Don't care if it is an old thread.
