From the Lost Pet Archives: Zoddie


Most of the pets who go missing in my neighborhood are cats, with the occasional dog or ferret thrown in for variety’s sake. This week, however, brings us the sad story of Zoddie, the lost green parrot with a red beak. Zoddie’s owner is apparently quite distraught over losing her and has posted nice color Xerox posters all along Bellevue, offering a reward and even providing us with instructions on how to pronounce the parrot’s name.

I wonder what the chances are that a lost parrot will return to her home? I’m hoping for the best, of course, but I also can’t help imagining Zoddie flying off to join a clan of liberated parrots — much like the the Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill.

    We saw a ‘Lost Turtle’ poster up on 10th, around Aloha, the other day. Several questions tripped over our tongues and we had to alternate mocking the heartbroken absentee owners.

    How, exactly, does one lose a turtle?

    How long, precisely, was the owner’s attention turned to other pressing matters?

    What were they smoking?
