There are individuals out there who think it is acceptable to inflict cruelty and harm upon innocent animals, and this is not okay.

Animal cruelty and abuse comes in many different forms, and even the hoarding of animals is considered a form of animal cruelty.

Animal hoarding is way too common of an occurrence.

It has been estimated that there are 900 to 2,000 new cases every year of animal hoarding in the U.S. with 250,000 animals falling victim.

When they should be punished for what they have done.

There are more good people out there than there are bad.

Nardjara is from the Netherlands and 2 years ago, she took in a new pet – a little budgie named Coco.

And as you can see, the poor little bird is missing a lot of her feathers.

And as a result of the severe stress she endured, she developed a disease called PBFD (psittacine beak and feather disease).

And it affects the beak, feathers and immune system of birds belonging to the Psittacidae family.

According to Pet Coach, PBFD was first recognized in 1975 by veterinarians in Australia, where the disease affects wild birds. “Although birds showing signs of disease usually die, it is common for birds to be exposed to the virus, develop a mild infection, and recover.”

She was cared for amazingly in order to recover.

And she is now almost completely bald.

But thanks to the love and care from Nardjara, Coco is in very good spirits and she is no longer suffering from severe stress.

And she now even has a roommate – Blue, who is completely intact of his feathers.

“Coco’s feathers can’t grow. The disease attacks her feather follicles and prevents them from growing,” she explained. “Sometimes she has the tiny head of breast feathers that grow a little bit, but they fall off really quickly.”

“I take care of Coco. My house is always warm, I love her with all my heart and I do my best to try to give her the best life possible,” she went on to say.
