  • As the story goes, Chippy the parakeet never saw it coming.

    His owner had decided to use the vacuum cleaner hose to clean out Chippy’s cage – with Chippy still sitting on his perch.

    As Chippy’s owner turned on the vacuum cleaner, the phone rang, and as she reached to answer it, the vacuum cleaner hose moved slightly toward Chippy and – “thwuuupp!”

    Chippy’s owner immediately dropped the phone and tore open the vacuum cleaner bag to rescue a very dusty, very scared bird.
