英語原文： In Kansas, USA, there is an organization called Tallgrass ParrotSanctuary, a shelter not only for parrots, but for other house animals as well, such as chickens, ducks, pigs, cats, and even tortoises▼. _(1)_ They end up suffering a miserable life on the streets or die from hunger and neglect.
The shelter helped save a parrot named Javi, pronounced in Spanish as "Ha-vee," from meeting such a terrible fate. She wasbarely alive when she was brought to the sanctuary. Feathers usually protect birds from the cold, but her body was almost bare with just a few feathers on the neck and wings. _(2)_ She was fed on bananas and other fruit, and her health rapidly improved. _(3)_ Javi can now recognize her name and repeat it happily. The original owners called the bird Hobby, but the staff decided to rename her because they believe that no living creature should be a hobby.
Parrots behave in a very peculiar▼ way when they find themselves in danger or distress. _(4)_ Conversely, these unique birds learn quickly if they're surrounded by caring and loving people. It should be no surprise, hen, that Javi learned to pronounce the magic words, "I love you."
這間庇護所幫忙拯救了一隻名叫哈維的鸚鵡（西班牙文發音為『哈維』，編按：在西班牙文中，字母 j 發 h 的音。），使牠免于遭遇這種可怕的命運。哈維被帶到庇護所時已奄奄一息。羽毛通常能讓鳥兒御寒，但她的身體幾乎光禿禿的，僅有幾根羽毛殘留在脖子和翅膀上。庇護所的社工製作小件的羊毛衫好為這隻鳥兒保暖，直到她長回新的羽毛。他們給她吃香蕉等其他水果，因而她的健康狀況迅速改善。她的進展皆靠一位專業獸醫的密切看護。如今哈維能夠認得出自己的名字，還會開心地重複念誦。原飼主把這隻鳥兒取名為哈比（編按：哈比為音譯，實表業馀愛好之意。），但工作人員決定幫她重新命名，因為他們認為任何一種生物都不該是一種業馀愛好。
