You scratch mine; I’ll scratch yours

Seeing parrots in captivity makes me uncomfortable so I was fully prepared to hate this video. Instead, I ended up watching a couple more in the series. These people own both a white parrot and a cat and are clearly enamored of both. The two animals are buddies.

In this video Coco, the parrot, gives Lucky, the cat, a scratchy massage. In return, Lucky grooms Coco’s feet. The animals’ owners set up a YouTube channel, gaybird7 to share the antics of their animal friends. There are recent videos of Coco but not of the two together.

The interspecies friendship is endearing and has something to teach us about love that ignores differences. Still, I’d always vote for leaving birds in their natural, free setting.
