Lost parakeet returned after he gave police his home address

Are you as stressed-out as I am?

Here’s a feel-good story that will make you smile.  😀

A pet parakeet that had escaped from his home was safely returned to his owner after he told police the address of his home near Tokyo.

The AFP reports (via GlobalAnimal), May 2, 2012, that Piko-chan escaped early Sunday morning from his home in the city of Sagamihara, Japan.

Piko-chan remained at large before a guest at a nearby hotel succeeded in coaxing the parakeet to perch on the human’s shoulder.  The bird was handed over to local police.

But Piko-chan did not speak until Tuesday evening when  he blurted out his home address. The stunned cops listened as the parakeet produced the home’s block,  street number, the names of the city (Sagamihara) and prefecture (Kanagawa).

His owner, 64-year-old Fumie Takahashi, once lost another parakeet after it flew away and was determined not to make the same mistake, a police spokesman explained. “So the owner decided to teach the address to this parakeet after she bought it at a pet store two years ago. ”

The police found out the name of the bird because he had said, ‘You’re pretty, Piko-chan.”

Cute story. My pet parakeet died 2 years ago. One of the best pets my husband and I ever had. Greeted us when we came in the door, tweeted when someone pulled up in the driveway. We really miss the little guy!
