El loro sin plumas que canta en la ducha y que se convirtió en una adorable estrella de Instagram

Producto de un virus, Rhea perdió todo su plumaje. Sin embargo, ahora es toda una estrella de Internet.

Rhea es un loro hembra que perdió todo su plumaje producto de una infección viral, lo que provocó también que se quedara sin hogar. Sin embargo, encontró el cariño y cuidado en Isabella Eisenmann, una joven de 24 años que vive en Boston, Estados Unidos y que se enamoró  de ella en cuanto la vio en una veterinaria.

Rhea sufrió lo que se conoce como “Enfermedad del pico y las plumas de los psitaciformes”, un virus que afecta a los loros y ataca sus células del crecimiento de los folículos de las plumas, pico y garra, causando progresiva malformación y necrosis de las plumas.

“Como no puede volar, disfruta corriendo alrededor de la casa, subiendo y bajando las escaleras todo el día. También ama tomar duchas en la mañana y cantar”, dice Isabella al diario británico Daily Mail.

Isabella también le creó una cuenta de Instagram que ha sido todo un éxito. Hasta la fecha, ya suma más de 240 mil seguidores, donde Isabella sube fotos y videos de Rhea. Otra muestra de su éxito ha sido un video que realizó el sitio The Dodo, el cual ya tiene más de 70 millones de reproducciones en Facebook.

A continuación te dejamos algunas fotografías de este curioso animal.

How our lives changed in 6 months! Original post on Facebook, go check it out 💞 My name is Isabella Eisenmann, aka Rhea’s mom! I was born and raised in Panama City, Panama. In 2012 I came to Boston, Massachusetts to study Graphic Design in @massartboston, where I graduated from this past May; since then I started working here in a marketing company and also as a side job, developing @bestoapp ••••••••••••••••••••• Back in June 2016, I was scrolling down my fb and stumbled upon a post from my dog’s vet, @backbayvetclinic about this birdie [Rhea] who needed a new home. I immediately send the link to my boyfriend [and partner in crime] and told him that I was calling the vet to adopt her. He knows me pretty well and knew I wasn’t joking. I called the vet and was added into a waitlist. ••••••••••••••••••••• A month or so later, they called me to tell me that she was mine if I wanted her. Well, excitement is an understatement of what I felt in that moment. I obviously started asking a million questions that I hadn’t even thought about, questions about her disease/health. Soon enough, it was the day I had to pick her up. I didn’t know what to expect, I just knew that this was meant to be. I honestly never even thought negatively about her appearance, to me that wasn’t an issue, she was simply a bird with a disability. As soon as she saw me, she jumped right onto me, it was magical. We became best friends. ••••••••••••••••••••• Rhea was a “healthy” birdie for the first two years of her life. Around May 2016 [I was told], the feathers in her belly area started to fall off, because of this she was tested for PBFD, which came out positive. Two months later or so, all her feathers fell off and that’s when I got her. She was born with Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease [read more about it here]. It basically attacks the feathers follicles, causing the feathers to fall off. Unfortunately, her feathers won’t grow back. The disease is eventually lethal and shortens a bird’s lifespan pretty drastically……(continue reading on her fb page) 😁
