Cat and Bird?

I thought I'd start a new topic.

My home is host to these two:
Seven a three month old kitten, and
Harry a five year old Nanday Conure.

The bird has a very large (6 ft by 3 ft) cage, and spends at least 2 - 3 or more hours a day out in the main room with me. He's got a dedicated perch in the middle of the room, with food and water, and toys. He enjoys sitting on my shoulder and the top of the door as well.

And the cat.

Now, I'm not asking them to be the best of friends - one is a predator and the other is prey, after all! That's why I got the perch - the cat can't get to the bird when he's on it. (She's yet to get him when he's on my shoulder - and the last few times she's tried, I suspect she's deliberately missed him - she's good at sneaking up, but still missed).

However, any advice is more than welcome - how do I attain a state of if not peaceful co-existence, then armed truce?

To be honest, I don't think you can.

The kitty might well lull both you and the bird into a sense of security then have the bird for lunch.
