Lost Pet Parakeet Returned After Telling Cops its Address

Without identification tags or a microchip, it is often difficult to recover a lost cat or dog much to the distress of their loving families. Luckily for one parakeet owner in Japan, her pet parakeet cannot only speak, but he knows his own address!

The parakeet, named Piko-chan, escaped from his home in the city of Sagamihara early Sunday morning. He flew into the busy city center where he roamed free before perching himself on the shoulder of a guest at a hotel close by where he was then apprehended by the police.

Piko-chan didn’t immediately blurt out his address, though. According to a report by the New York Post, it wasn’t until Tuesday night that the bird blurted out the names of the city and the district where his owner lives.

Stunned, the police listened carefully as Piko-chan proceeded to repeat his owner’s street and house number.

Figuring they had nothing to lose, the police grabbed Piko-chan and drove to the address he repeated.  Sure enough, when they arrived Piko-chan’s 64-year-old owner reclaimed her lost bird.

She told the police that Piko-chan is not her first parakeet and she had previously owned a similar bird that flew away and was lost forever. Vowing never to make that mistake again, she taught her new bird the address of her home. Thank goodness she did!
