Parrot with a man attatched

We’ve been living in this village for 21 years now and for only the 2nd time this morning I’ve seen the old fisherman who walks around with a parrot on his shoulder. Everyone else in the family seems to have seen him regularly, but I’ve only known of his existence for a couple of years. He came into the post office to talk to someone else who owns a parrot, judging by the conversation I overheard.

there's a man in town here who rides a ten speed with a cat on his shoulder. he goes into hiding in the winter, but every summer you can see him 'round town with that cat perched on his shoulder as if it were the most natural thing in the world. it's a big cat, too. it must weigh a ton.

Kimberley: perhaps it's too cold for the cat in winter!
