This story is sad, but cool in a way too. A San Juan Capistrano, CA woman has lost her African Grey parrot and has asked the public to help her find him or return him if found:
Karen McIntyre said the bird’s absence is like losing a member of the family, in part because he spoke in her late husband’s voice.
“My husband passed away three years ago, and he still uses my husband’s voice to tell the dogs to be quiet, and he calls my son Patrick, or he calls my daughter Erin,” said McIntyre.”He picks up the phone and makes telephone calls in my husband’s voice.”
October the parrot flew away from the family’s backyard on July 15. McIntyre didn’t think he would go far because he has flown away in the past, but after weeks of posting signs and searching online, she remains unable to find her pet of 20 years.
Who knew? It’s a good thing they got along I guess. Anyway, here; hoping Mrs. McIntyre finds her parrot October soon and in one piece.
