A parrot that “meows like a cat” is missing from Little Melton

Charlie, a one-year-old African grey parrot went missing from his family home this morning.

Kim Wainwright (pictured), 32, said her two daughters Emily, 4, and Annabelle, 3, are very upset by their pet's disappearance and that Charlie is missed dearly.

She said the parrot, who is grey with a red tail and has a few feathers missing due to moulting, can say his own name, meows like a cat, wolf whistles, and says the words 'tickle tickle'.

The family are asking for any one who may have seen the parrot to call 07505435523.
