In the ordinary run of things, a cat and a parakeet might not be expected to get along. But that's not always the case - as clearly demonstrated by the video above.
Here, we see Kitty and Polly* unite against a common enemy: the laser pointer. We're particularly impressed by the awesome teamwork on display. Look how Kitty waits to pounce while Polly tries to block the little red light's escape route and drive it in from the sidelines. Together, they can crush this thing. One day. Possibly.
*Probably not their real names.

This cat's determination is admirable.
This video really builds a narrative.
Going In Circles
We got dizzy just watching this poor cat.
2 Cats, One Laser
They really should band together.
Dog Obstacle Course
This dog does a good job of avoiding all of the obstacles in its way.
So many cats, one dangerous laser.
Slow & Steady
"I.... got.... you!"
"I'll keep up with it."
Everyone gets in on the game.
This dog really had no choice.
The pug clearly wins.
Dog And Baby
The baby is just as into it as the dog.
Super Hyper Dog
Just keep trying.
Attached To The Collar
This seems cruel, but also smart.
Slide Into It
With Bells On
The bells really add to this video.
Nose Print On The Wall
It's videos like these that make you wish a dog could actually catch the pointer. So much effort!
Laser On Awesome Couch
This dog deserves an Oscar for its face when the laser goes up the wall.
The best part is when the dog looks up at its owner.
None of them quite know how to relax.
These birds will play along for a while.
Dragon Eats Laser
Ok, this is a little gross.
Is this some new kind of food?
A Hungry Lizard
Eventually, the lizard stops having it.
Cat Does Circles
At least the cat gets to be comfortable.
It Doesn't Always Work
"Not today, sir!"
