Owl Rightie, Then

This video is so hootin’ cute it’ll spin your head around. Where do we sign up to give head scritchies to owlets? Is there, like, a waiting list or something?



  1. I swear I could almost hear it purring. And…FIRST!

  2. Owls: the bestest birds there is.

  3. I love owls, they are my all time favorite birds.

  4. Huh… I make a post about a cat that looks like an owl, then Meg posts owls. Coincidence, or have I just been a good boy today?

    I love the “jealous” owl. He’s all “Just you wait, buddy. I’m gonna get mine soon.”

  5. Amazing….and the music is PERFECTLY chosen. (Especially at 1:03!)

  6. Owl be seeing you in owl the owl familiar places
    That this heart of mine embraces owl day through
    In that small cafe, the park across the way
    The children’s carousel, the chestnut trees, the wishing well

    Owl be seeing you in every lovely summer’s day
    In everything that’s light and gay
    Owl owlways think of you that way
    Owl find you in the morning sun
    And when the night is new
    Owl be looking at the moon
    But owl be seeing you

  7. ORLY?? YARLY!

  8. I’ve pet a burrowing owl before.

  9. I’m going to bite you in the spleen, you know.

  10. This post makes me feel a little woozy. Must be owltitude sickness.

  11. This has been posted here before.

  12. That baby owl reminds me of Harry Potter’s owl when he first goes to Hogwarts. His is a baby and makes mistakes and is very cute.

  13. bleen

  14. Who?

  15. This is very cute. We would welcome an owl into our yard if one landed there.

  16. And it was so good, they posted it again.

  17. Andi from NC says:

    Love the sleepy owl – and love the music – it makes we want to drift off into wondrous, owl-scritching dreamland of rainbows and kitty cats…. honk shu… honk shu….

  18. LunaChickFringe says:

    That’s the same blissed out look my Jinx get when I give her head scritches. That is also the same “angry” look I get from her sister Lily when I pet Jinx.

  19. Pidgwidgeon.

  20. *head tilt* Why is it tagged “Pups”?

  21. At 1:04, you can see an owl’s nictitating membranes (second eyelids) retracting . . . very cool.

  22. LisaLassie says:

    nicely done

  23. Seriously, how satisfied can an owl look?

  24. Um, Pigwideon is Ron’s owl; Ron gets him during their fourth year.

  25. Owls eat squirrels little baby birds etc please do not admire the owls!!!! They are evil things that kill our favorite babies! Sure they look cute but that is their om. Owls are evil because they eat cute babies.

  26. That satisfied.:D

  27. Hedwig.

  28. that baby owl’s sweet loving expression has to be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen…

  29. Moi, Actually says:

    Yeah. And I love the way his eyebrows morph into horns. Serious attitude.

  30. My kittens are named Jinx and Lilli too! They must be the bestest!!

  31. In the sbleen?

  32. Alice Shortcake says:

    I think the Owl Petter has discovered the owl’s erogenous zones…

  33. Sorry to spoil the fun, but owls don’t belong enchained on a fun fair. I hate it when they display wild animals like that. Makes unconscious people want to have them as pets and treat them like ss….. inappropriately.

  34. Sooo sweet! 🙂 And nice Harry Potter style music….

  35. Actually, they’re not pets but part of a falconry group that regularly performs at county fairs and medieval re-enactments festivals…

  36. So between the main owl’s expressions. the mood-dependent music, and the jealous owls’ drama, I’m pretty sure this is actually the set-up to a long-lost Chuck Jones-animated Looney Tunes cartoon…

  37. Aw!!! Such a happy owlet!

  38. do not anger the owl.

  39. SlaveToCat says:

    That was more relaxing than a Hollywood Martini, (a pour of Valium, splash of xanax, a pinch of ambien, and a drip of morphine all shaken together with gin and a sprinkling of pixar dust).

    Nap nap time…….zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

  40. Well, that’s even worse! Animals should not peform for any group of humans.

  41. Hedwig is too big for this guy. Pig is just the right size, and yes, I know it is a gift from Sirus to Ron at the end of his third year (Pig delivers the letter to Harry saying that he is alright after he escapes the castle). Pig just seems to fit the size and personality of the owl getting the scritches.

  42. Pot kettle…

  43. phred's mom says:

    too bad her manicure is so chipped, her hands have been seen by a bajillion
    people; nonetheless she is immortalized by her perfect technique. The owlie
    obviously doesn’t -pardon me- give a hoot about her nails. He is in heaven.

  44. and who, really, would complain about this one?

  45. Is that on the right or left side?

  46. Hedwig is a snowy owl. Her body double is a male snowy owl! You can see in different scenes that sometimes she has brown spots (female) and sometimes she is more white (male). One of the best reasons to live in England, or in Italy, apparently, since it seems that’s where this video was shot, is that unlike in the US, it’s not illegal to have an owl for a pet. Lucky Europeans!

    I wanna just lean thru the screen and kiss that baby right on its sweet little head.

  49. LunaChickFringe says:

    Of course! Those are the bestest names evar! My overlords are bunnies, though.

  50. FrostFlower says:

    Reason #17 I am still waiting for my Hogwarts letter.

  51. If anything, it just makes me love the owls more.

  52. [Unconscious] means “without awareness, sensation, or cognition.”
    I believe you meant [unconscientious], which means without “the inner sense of what is right or wrong in one’s conduct or motives.”

    “The Vocabulary Police”

  53. The owl contest are an Italian tradition.The owls live as pet with their owners.

  54. I make that face when someone rubs my head too.

  55. how to give an owl- massage!

  56. i have to say that sometimes owls creep me out O_O
