After the refuge went under, the two friends were rescued together by Danita Morrison, a bird lover who runs the online shop Things for Wings and the parrot owner help forum Avian Avenue. Morrison watched this special friendship flourish — all the way to the end.
Lucky Lou had lung cancer. Morrison often had to take Lucky Lou to the bird hospital for special care. But Coco would cry, especially at night, when her friend wasn’t there, so Morrison learned that Coco needed to go visit her friend frequently when she was away.
