So, who pulled a rabbit out of the hat then Karen? Was it our Harry?
In case you're wondering like too many readers just how Harry the Parrot disappeared from last week's column to be replaced by a white rabbit in Petz Zone, all I can say is that the gremlins were at it again.
So here is the real picture of the bird perched on owner Karen Lavery's right shoulder. It was open day at her place in the village of Crumlin near Aldergrove to celebrate its fifth anniversary.
Ever since she has been asked repeatedly by shoppers if she uses a hat like Tommy Cooper every time she swaps Harry for the rabbit. Harry who is learning to talk says: "I can fly, but I can't hop." A wee bit embarrassing for both Karen and Harry.
