A mild-mannered pet by night, Lucinda's parakeet (budgie for the Brits) became The Winged Avenger by day while Lucinda was at work.

His motto? Here kitty, kitty...

Post voting: Woo hoo! A new PB and by far my highest finish, percentage-wise.

Regarding the name, er, it's a pun. Claude=Clawed (sheepish grin)

Wonderful Talons - but Claude ?? The Winged Avenger ??

I'm not sure that title is going to spawn a Blockbuster movie trilogy - not even when you throw in his friend 'Cecil the Slightly Cross' . .
