My parrot saved five lives
Susanna Bolton spoke to Cavendish Press to tell how her pet parrot saved the lives of five newborn pups by walking up the stairs in the dead of night to wake her up and warn about her dog unexpectedly going into labour. Animal lover Susanna, 55, from Darwen, Lancs, was awoken by her pet African Grey parrot Sam, who had never been upstairs before, squawking 'come on, come on' on her pillow and as she took him down to his perch he continued his racket until she noticed that her pomeranian dog had given birth, a week earlier than expected. Thanks to Sam, Susanna was just in time to save all of their lives. The story went in Real people magazine.
