Leeloo Goes AWOL

The other night, Leeloo, our parrot, decided to take in a look around the neighborhood. Somehow, she hitched a ride out on an unsuspecting/distracted shoulder. This caused us one of the most frightening nights we have had. Seeing that the temperature was to drop below 40, we were sure our little tropical girl would have a tough night. So we put out our posters out around the neighborhood and went to bed fearing the worst. The next morning brought the best possible news. Leeloo foun her way onto the terrace of a family nearby. They found our "lost"posters while preparing to put their "found" posters out and called us right away. A miracle we are very grateful for!

Welcome home, Leeloo!

Thank goodness! I'll bet Leeloo got a very warm welcome at your house. All's well that ends well.

The poor bird. The streets are no place for a parrot.

Too many bad cats.

Wow!! That is a great story...
Thanks for posting it!
Good things happen more often than we would like to acknowledge.

When I first read the post I was so spooked that you lost Leeloo and then was very happy to hear she was found safe and sound the next day. Now that you have plumbed the depths of your sleepless nights and lived to tell of it, I hope that all is well with you.

Great choice of background music! Good thing Leeloo was found, otherwise how else would we fight off another alien invasion?

I'm so glad Leeloo was found. I know how scary it can be when an animal companion is missing. Beautiful bird, BTW.

I lost my little White Capped Pionus Parrot once! Niles flew out a door, my mother-in-law purposely left open even though she knew we had birds!

He was gone for a week, but a kindly neighbor took him in and called us when she saw our "Lost Bird" flier.

I'm glad you got Leeloo back too.

Fellow nurse and bird lover
