Vernon Davies lived in London and kept birds, which were called budgies ( попугайчик). One day he phoned his friend and asked to feed the birds as he was going to Wales for a week. He said he'd leave food ready in his kitchen. A key to his front door would be left in the letterbox of his friend's flat. His friend forgot about the birds untill the night before Vernon was going to return. He also forgot about the key and tried to get to Vernon's house through a window. He thought that poor birds would either be dead or dying. As a result, when he reached the window, a policeman came and shone a torch at him, asking what was he doing there. "Oh", -he said,- "I was just going to get in to give some food to Mr Davies' birds!"
