Canadian Woman Places Personal Ad for Her Parrot

CBC News

A woman in New Brunswick has placed a personal ad in a local flyer, hoping to find a mate for her lovesick parrot.

The ad in the pet listings of the Buyer Flyer reads: "11-year-old blue-fronted Amazon lady seeks like gentleman for long-term relationship. The love of my life says he's not the same species and it just won't work."

Susan Weatherby said her parrot, Abbie, has hit sexual maturity and is ready for a male in her life.

But Abbie's just looking for love in all the wrong places. She seems to have fallen hard for Weatherby's father, Marvin.

Weatherby said the infatuation is so bad that Abbie makes "wild vocalizations" when she recognizes the sound of his car in the driveway, displaying her tail feathers and squawking her approval whenever Marvin comes near.

"I literally, when my father's around, can't get near her because she lunges at me," said Weatherby. "She's protecting her mate."

The bird seems to like her men with considerably less plumage than normal, Weatherby notes. She's gaga over Marvin's bald head.

"He'll ask her for a kiss and bend his head in front of her and she will actually lean over and very gently open her mouth, stick her tongue out and give him a kiss on the top of the head," said Weatherby.
