Lindsay at Videogum, a name/editor/sensibility to keep track of if you keep track of such things, posts 6 misunderstood cute-animal videos. I haven't been on the cute-animal beat for a second, so it was a good catch up for me.
This one I pulled, and totally see how it can be confusing. I would challenge anyone to get a definitive read on the parrot. I didn't know birds could emote smarmy, but the first half of the video, as he cozies up with his friend/victim, i am quite certain he has ulterior motives. Manipulative kitty-molester or somesuch. But by the end the cuteness rings true, and you think, oh, maybe it's just the claws that predispose you to suggesting otherwise.
I'd like a follow-up clip though, to get more sample-size on this relationship.
