Owners' plea for help finding missing parrot from Flackwell Heath
A PARROT has left his owners in a flap after escaping from his Flackwell Heath home, sparking an appeal for his safe return.
Oscar, an African Grey parrot, flew out of the window as Kat Keen and housemate Sophie Robinson were loading their belongings from the flat in Ring Road to move house on July 25.
The pair bought the five-year-old bird together when they ran Ammerslee Pet Shop in Swains Lane.
And the worried bird-lovers are appealing to anyone who sees their feathered fugitive pet to get in touch so they can be reunited with their beloved pet.
Kat said: "There were lots of people helping us move and it was quite chaotic. Someone must have left a door open and Oscar just flew out.
"We haven’t had his wings clipped and he is in very good physical condition so he can definitely fly a long way if he wanted.
"It’s summer he will be able to find fruit to eat, and he’s probably quite enjoying himself at the moment to be honest. But he is likely to try and find people as that’s all he knows.
"We are desperate to get him home and have the family together again."
Oscar has escaped once before and was located five days later three miles away in Totteridge.
He has a registered ring fitted which can be used to confirm his identity.
Kat and Sophie have already launched a Facebook campaign, with a possible sighting as far away as Burnham.
They have contacted the RSPCA, who are on the case, and also the police in an attempt to find Oscar.
Anyone who sees Oscar, or has any information about his whereabouts, should contact the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999.
