Anne-UK1 08/14/11 04:56 pm I pinched this from the LotL chat forum, I don't know if it's been posted before but it's definitely something a little different. - Link
Peter 08/14/11 06:09 pm Amazing!

Thanks

Anne-UK1 08/15/11 03:21 am It is amazing, though I flinch ever time the cat jumps for those bits of leather on the owl's legs. I wondered if maybe the cat has been declawed, which wouldn't be so good. No way of telling from the video of course. My favourite bit was when the cat did a 'leap frog' over the owl, lol.
Pam 08/15/11 10:49 am Thanks Anne...I pinched it too to pass on. Whatever next?
Melanie 08/15/11 10:58 am If you notice the owl is wearing jesses which indicates he's been hand raised. Further checking on YouTube shows the owl and the cat were raised together from infancy.
Peter 08/15/11 01:30 pm Thanks Melanie.
Anne-UK1 08/15/11 05:19 pm Thanks Melanie - I couldn't think of the word for those leather bits. Not sure where my brain is these days, I even got mixed up with leap frog and piggy back earlier and had to come back and edit!

I guessed these two had grown up together in a domestic situation - if you notice at the end of the video they both turn to look at the camera as if someone has called them. Time to go in maybe, as the cat turns tail and runs just like a naughty child deciding he wants to stay out a bit longer. What I really do like in that film is the oh so gentle way the cat touches the owl with his paw, it's quite remarkable.

Here's another video, this time from the Dyfi osprey project. It seems owls do like to play - Link
Pam 08/16/11 10:09 am Sweet little video Anne. Osprey nests when they are empty seem to have lots of different visitors.
