Her former owners named her as they thought of her: Hobby.
In late September, she arrived at Tallgrass Parrot Sanctuary in Kansas smelling like stale cigarettes and rotting garbage. And she had completely plucked out all the feathers she could reach.
Rescuers renamed her Javi. "We have decided to change Hobby's name to Javi, (pronounced "Ha vee") since no living being should be someone's hobby," the sanctuary wrote on Facebook.
