WHOSE is the pretty boy (or girl) then?

That was the question being asked in Farnborough this week after a very friendly cockatiel was found sitting in a tree in the garden of a house full of cats.

The cockatiel actually flew to Sue and Martin Pennington when they called it after spotting it in the tree. Their friend and fellow cat breeder Liz Corps, of Canterbury Road, Farnborough, took it away in a cat carrier.

Neither home was suitable as its feline occupants would regard the wandering bird as a Tweetie style snack, so Mrs Corps has now lodged it with some cockatiel breeders while the owner is found.

Liz told the Star: "We are keeping details about the bird to ourselves until we are satisfied that we have the real owner." If you think it is yours ring her on 01252 652984.
