Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Good evening, JACustomer.Most aves, when injured, will begin to show symptoms very quickly. They will stay at the bottom of the cage, they will avoid eating, they will appear to be fluffed up, begin feather plucking, etc. If all is normal at this time, I'd do precisely what you're doing and keep a close eye on your conure. You may wish to call the hospital that's 6 hours away and ask how quickly they could get you in if this were an emergency. If needed, make an advance appt and watch your bird during this time. If s/he worsens, you'll have the appt if you need it. If not, you can cancel it at any time.If this truly was minor, I expect that all will be well with your bird. But do keep in mind for the future that your cat clearly is not a fan of your bird. You may need to make some modifications to the doorway where your bird stays or the hallway leading up to the bird's room to ensure the cat does not come back into that area.
