Who is bigger?

Don't hurt me Kiki, originally uploaded by torri_g.

Since shooting pictures of animals last night, I have had a difficult time picking which one to use for this post today. I ended up with a lot of good shots yesterday, but it is the funny one's that I kept being drawn to. This picture of Kiki the Cockatiel vs. Trinity the Coonhound is my final winner, if you click on the picture you should be taken to my flickr and be able to see my second choice.

Anyway, of the four birds in the house there are two that can be handled and get out of their cages a couple times a day. Kiki and Puff enjoy their time out of their cages and spend the time with their humans. Okay so Puff spends a good share of his time flying around and lands for brief moments with us. Kiki on the other hand can not fly because of wings that were clipped before we got her. So for her safety cats have to be rounded up and put in the back of the house and dogs either have to go in their beds or have muzzles put on. Trinity's response to the time of having her muzzle on is to lay on the couch and pout, but deal with the fact that she just isn't going to be allowed to put a bird in her mouth. Kiki last night though didn't want to stay on a lap or anywhere near a person. She was more interested in checking things out and wandering on her own, which took her right over to where Trinity was laying down doing her very best pouting. Kiki showing no signs of fear walked right up to Trinity to get a closer look. What went on between the two of them had the whole family laughing watching them. The more Kiki complained at Trinity the more she put her face down into the couch as if to hide her face. Trinity weighs a good 65 pounds, Kiki weighs in at a mere few ounces, but looking at the picture who would you guess has the bigger attitude? I have to give my Trinity girl kudos though, one swipe of her paw and Kiki is no more, but she is a great girl who just wanted the bird to walk away and leave her to do her pouting.

It is time for Feline and Furball Friday over with Steve and Pickle. Once again I'm throwing in some feathers into the mix just for some extra fun. If you want to play along all you have to do is post your own and leave a link in comments. I hope that everyone has a great weekend.

Steven's right. That is pretty darn cute! And it's great that you can trust your puppy near a cockatiel. The word on my dog Cayenne from the Humane Society was that she
"almost ate a guinea pig!"
