Never has Sylvester the Cat’s famous ‘sufferin’ succotash’ saying been more appropriate. This is moment a white parrot fluent in feline strolls up towards three moggies, and dumbfounded they sit back shell shocked into silence. Parrots are expert mimickers and are well-known for imitating human speech, but it is clearly not the only language they can learn. In a comical YouTube video the bird wanders over to the cats on top of a bed. Then at the unknown location it perfectly copies a moggy’s meow.
The three cats are absolutely taken aback, almost unable to say a single word. One utters a quiet meow in shock, but the rest stay silent. And when another gets a little too close for the parrot’s liking, true to form the bird hisses at it, just like a cat The felines are so intrigued in the bird they are likely holding off thoughts about the animal as a potential next meal, for now at least. The viral video has nearly 500,000 views.
