A family is searching for the owner of a bird they rescued from the jaws of their cat.

Avis Johns spotted the small blue bird in her back garden at around 6pm last Thursday.

She said: “I saw the bird, which looked like a Budgie, fly down and so went out onto the steps and called him.

“He was hopping towards me when suddenly my cat, Maya, came along and grabbed him in her mouth

“I ran out and wrestled him away from the cat and he hopped on to my finger.”

Ms Johns took the bird inside and then later went out and bought bird food.

“Since then he is always perching on my shoulder or sitting on my finger. He wants to be with me all the time. He seems very domestic, like someone’s pet.

“The bird has become part of the family. He likes sitting on my husband Pat’s head and perching on my daughter Carmel’s finger.”

She said the bird has a tag with numbers and letters but she does not know what they mean.

“Someone has obviously lost their pet and we are appealing for its owner to come forward.”

The family, who live off East End Road, East Finchley, have now bought a cage and Ms Johns said both husband Pat and 13-year-old Carmel have fallen in love with the creature.

“They would to keep him, He is so friendly but we need to reuniite him with his owners.”

Ms Johns, a governor at Archer Academy, has made an appeal via Twitter and anyone with information should Tweet her on @localschoolsN2.

A spokesman for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) said that birds with tags could be part of a scientific survey.
