Parrot gives away girlfriend's infidelity

Jan. 17, 2006 at 1:00 PM

HEADINGLEY, England, Jan. 17 (UPI) -- Two relationships have ended in England because an African gray parrot tipped off his owner that his girlfriend was cheating on him.

Chris Taylor, 30, was not suspicious at first when his parrot Ziggy imitated his girlfriend's voice, saying "Hi, Gary," every time her cell phone rang. He also found it funny when Ziggy made wet kissing sounds when the name Gary was mentioned on television.

The Mirror reported the last straw was when Taylor and Suzy Collins, 25, began snuggling on the couch, and Ziggy murmured "I love you, Gary."

Collins confessed to having a four-month affair with a co-worker, then bolted from the house, and later moved out.

Collins had to find a new owner for Ziggy, too, as the bird wouldn't stop talking about Gary.

"I know I'll get over Suzy but I don't think I'll ever get over Ziggy," he said.
