Compassionate Parrot?

I wouldn’t usually share a silly internet vid on my professional blog, but this particular one directly relates to my animated lecture “Tale of King Sapiens

Lookit that! A parrot is very deliberately gently petting the cat!  It’s possible this is simply mimicry, but there’s an undeniable quality of affection that hints at the depths of a parrot’s cognitive capacity, and perhaps its spirit. But, again, it is very easy for us humans to anthropomorphize the actions of pets and see more than there really is.

In any case, incredible.
