Scarecrows have been used for ages to keep birds away from crops (Learn how to make a scarecrow). Scarecrow types that deter pigeons include owls, snakes, cats, and people. The key to using one of these successfully is to make it appear as lifelike as possible. Move it from one location to another every few days. A scarecrow that moves either randomly or responsively is usually more effective then one that does not. Windsocks that are made to look like animals can work well so long as there is enough wind to keep them ‘alive'.

I think taking care of the pigeon is supposed to be the cat's job. Perhaps lighten up on her rations and she may solve the problem when she gets hungry.
edit: You may also have just acquired a homing pigeon. For fun you may want to see how far you can take the bird and see if it will return. Get a little capsule for putting messages.edit on 5/9/12 by AnonymousCitizen because: another idea
