A heart-warming video shows little Coco hopping around and being kissed by animal lover Nardjara Bennaars in her home in Zoetermeer.
Coco seems oblivious to her affliction, although she can’t fly due to her condition and at one point is seen furiously flapping her wings before giving up and walking instead.
