This afternoon, I went for a hike to the park in the center of the city just 2 km away from home. I was swinging on the swings, thinking about some things regarding life, and I noticed this bird that fell from a tree.
It was a baby swallow. Its back was hurt, and out of nowhere, a white cat came to try to eat it. The poor thing was struggling to run away but couldn't run or fly. I immediately ran off to chase away the cat and took the bird in my hand.
It was real freaked out and it screeched a lot. I was stressed because I thought people will get the wrong idea, but I pet it on the head for a minute and it calmed down. I also gave it a subtle belly rub and took it all the way home.
My parents said I can't keep it and I'd have to take it to a vet to heal it, but I couldn't do that since it's pretty expensive, so I let it walk around in our garden. Some four hours later, its mother found it and took it with herself. I managed to rescue the poor thing! :)
