Parrots are notorious for mimicking sounds, but Corienne Pretorius was in for a surprise when her five-year-old African grey parrot called Buddy placed a mystery online order by impersonating her.
Pretorius could not place when she ordered a £10 set of gift boxes when she received a notification.
39-year-old Corienne lives in Greenwich, South East London with her civil engineer husband Jan, 45, and 8-year-old son Jaden. However, she soon realised that neither on them were responsible for the order.
She said to the Sun, “I couldn’t believe it when I realised that Buddy had made the order."
The parrot used a voice-controlled gadget to place the order online by impersonating its owner.
The hilarious parrot also enjoys mimicking the pet cat that Corienne owns....
