OTSEGO, Mich., June 20 (UPI) -- A Michigan woman whose cats took a liking to a wounded robin she found in her yard said the bird had returned to the wild.

Karin Caston of Otsego, who said Peeps the young robin appeared to have an injured wing when she found it chirping in her yard June 6, said she took the bird into her home and soon discovered the young bird liked to nestle in the fur of her cats, the Kalamazoo (Mich.) Gazette reported Wednesday.

"I've never done anything like this before, but it was something that I felt that I could do -- I just had an inner sense that I had to take care of him -- to give him a chance," Caston said.

She said Peeps returned to the wild Monday at Otsego's Brookside Park.

"He's brought me a lot of joy, and it's been an amazing couple of weeks," she said. "I'm sad, yet I know it's a wild animal and needs to return to nature."
