Cat trouble

by Sam

Hello, we have a pair of mourning doves that were attacked by a stray cat. They had a nest very close to the ground and the cat viciously attacked both parents. The doves have two eggs and they are still warm, but the cat killed the father and the mother left with serious injuries to her wings and neck, i don't think she is coming back either. So should i let nature take it's course, or hatch the eggs myself? Please help the eggs only have and hour or so left!
