I love both cats and parakeets/budgies, and laughed when I saw these photos. Hope they make you smile too: "The moment sleeping kitten is pecked awake by cheeky budgie who wants to play"








Sound asleep: The kitten takes a nap, but the mischievous budgie has other plans...

This isn't the pecking order: Having left its cage, a budgie cheekily pecks dozing kitten









What a twitter: The moment sleeping kitten is pecked awake by cheeky budgie who wants to play

In the cartoon world, Sylvester was forever cweeping up on his would-be supper, Tweety Pie.

But in the real world, it seems, there has been something of a role reversal. The pictures here show a living room shared by a kitten and a budgie.

In what could have been a fatal display of daring, the bird decided to leave his cage and taunt his feline
playfellow by reversing the normal pecking order.

He hopped on top of the napping kitten, trying to attract his attention, but the good-natured kitten simply ignored him.









Wakey! Wakey! The bird wants the kitten to rise and shine and join in the fun

Emboldened, the bird then hops onto the kitten, which begins to wake up. The feline is not quite sure what to do

Undeterred, the budgie continued to harass his sleepy-eyed friend until he lazily opened an eye to see what was going on.








After
being repeatedly pecked on the midriff, the kitten jumped up and took a swipe at its tormentor.

Then as the cat gave chase, the budgie led it straight into his cage.

The antics of the two, whose identities are unknown, have become an internet hit.

After being persistently pecked in the midriff, the kitten now looks less than happy...

Patience exhausted, the kitten springs up and takes a swipe at its feathered tormentor...







But this game between the unnamed animals may not last as the kitten grows up.

Budgerigars are known to be very active, energetic, and lively birds.

They are originally from Australia and live on grains and seeds and have never eaten cats. They grow up to 18cm.

In contrast, their feline friends grow up to 46cm in length and live on a diet of commercial cat food as well as rodents... and birds.
