From the Department of Awesome Acts of Kindness comes the bittersweet story of Charlie, a handsome green male Eclectus parrot, rescued from dire circumstances by Rebecca Blagg. Before he was rescued Charlie nearly starved to death and had plucked out his own feathers due to his desperate situation. But now he lives in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire, England with Rebecca, who takes excellent care of Charlie, nursing him back to health and giving him the love he deserves. And to help him keep warm while his feathers grow back, Rebecca knitted Charlie a cute little parrot-sized sweater.
Thank goodness for awesome acts of kindness and adorable knitting projects.
