We should celebrate the Fourth by coming together, even with our enemies. This bird is way, way ahead of the curve on that score.

The video, courtesy of user Gusev26, shows a parrot making friends with kittens. Amazingly, the kittens don't try to eat the bird, although they're obviously just a little befuddled by what this giant blue feathered thing is, and why it's getting all up in their grill.

And then the parrot starts cleaning the kittens, in possibly one of the most adorable moments we've ever seen.

Really, if cats and birds can set aside their long history, can't we all? Shouldn't we all follow the example of this parrot in terms of bravery and reconciliation?

Just don't ask us to poop on a car, parrot.
