Bird in distress

Please help identifying this bird my cat cornered. Bird was on ground and cat was looking at it. I don't think it did anything to it yet but the bird is in distress. Please help with some info as to whom to call. Bird has a ring on the foot too

It's some sort of domesticated pigeon, presumably someone's pet. I hope that it is ok!

On the ring you´ll find most likely the association where the breeder belongs, beneath other things. If you can post it here we can help to find responsible people from them. Contacting them will lead you to the pigeon owner.
