Hall and his sons, Sam and Trevor, managed to escape from the burning property, grabbing Bob's cage as they fled. All three suffered smoke inhalation although three-year-old Bob survived unhurt. "I used to find Bob very annoying with his growling and squawking. But not now. He is a legend. He saved our lives. We just got out in time," the Sun quoted Sam, as telling a local newspaper. Now, Francis Hall has said that he is going to find a mate for Bob as a reward. "I'm definitely going to get him a treat - some new toys, a swing, a bell and a mirror," Hall said. "It might be the right time to get him a mate. I've been thinking about an outdoor cage. Now the house is having to be re-done, this might be the time to do it," he added.
