One of the risks we take when we decide to let a pet into our hearts is the heartbreak we will go through if/when we say goodbye. Rhea the Naked Birdie, the little lovebird with Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She was adopted from a vet clinic by Isabella Eisenman, who set up an Instagram account and facebook page for the tiny bird. Rhea quickly became a superstar with thousands of adoring fans – many of whom sent her hand knitted garments.
Cooper and the flock hope that Rhea knows how beloved she was and that somewhere she is flying free and preening her glossy new feathers.
