Everyone Falls in Love With This Featherless Lovebird, Send Mini Sweaters To Save Her From Freezing

When 23-year-old Isabella Eisenmann from Boston saw a social media post about a featherless lovebird Rhea needing a home, she decided to help. Now the whole world is falling in love with Eisenmann’s lovebird, with birdie’s followers on Instagram even sending her custom-made sweaters.

Unfortunately, Rhea needs those sweaters not only to look good, but also to stay warm, as due to Psittacine, a beak and feather disease Rhea is quite ‘naked’. In severe cases this disease can even cause the birds to lose their claws and beaks. Luckily, Rhea has only a mild form of this condition and doesn’t need anything than an annual blood test.

Besides, Rhea has no business being sad, and is extremely social, always out of the cage and running around in the house, at times even singing like crazy! A lovebird to fall in love with, Rhea shows that ‘different’ can be super cute.

‘Acceptance is key and no matter how different you are physically, you are still beautiful; that’s what I want people to learn from her. Always smile, be happy and have a positive attitude’ Eisenmann told Bored Panda.
