her me Sporran Herself.
Our Secretary has a friend from the South and he likes animals, too. So he sent her a film about an owl and a pussy cat. Not the ones that went to sea and then got married. Because that would be silly.
I’m not sure where this cat and the owl live, but Dinah says that the owl is “probably imprinted”* because it would not naturally play like that with a cat. I say not many cats would want to “play” with an owl!
But I would like one! It looks like a lot of fun. And, of course, I am very, very good at jump-flying. Quick, too. And I love feathers!
So, if you know where I could get one of these, please leave a comment.
PS. Of course I would not hurt the owl.
The owl is jessed-up, which means it has been trained on a lure, possibly for educational purposes. It may have been hand-reared, in which case it is imprinted to its human food source and would be unlikely to survive in the wild.
Sheer speculation, but we used to see this quite a lot when working in rehab. Getting such birds back to release state takes a lot of work and success is never guaranteed.
And, no, we will not be getting Sporran a barn owl for Christmas!
