Don't do this at home. Leave it to the professionals
I was forwarded an e-mail that has 13 adorable pictures of this kitten playing and then being groomed by the parakeet while it naps. I can't post them all here but if you would like to see them write to me at Steve@mybedfordcounty.com and I will forward them.
I am not sure how they were protecting the parakeet or how they knew it would be safe, but they are priceless, especially if they were ours.
