On a different note, I've always wanted a pet owl. I wonder how one goes about such. Does their poop stain?

It's usually a pretty distinct casting of the mouse or small rodent it ate.

I minored in Latin rodent skeletons we should get together and argue over the etymolgy of bird stools.

That's great! As a zooarchaeologist who minored in linguistics I find your proposal of friendly argument intriguing.

How the fark does one go about walking an owl?

You know what, Stuart, I LIKE YOU. You're not like the other
people, here, in the trailer park.

Oh, don't go get me wrong. They're fine people, they're
good Americans. But they're content to sit back, maybe
watch a little Mork and Mindy on channel 57, maybe kick
back a cool, Coors 16-ouncer. They're good, fine people,
Stuart. But they don't know ... what the queers are doing
to the soil!

You know that Jonny Wurster kid, the kid that delivers papers
in the neighborhood. He's a foreign kid. Some of the neighbors
say he smokes crack, but I don't believe it.

Anyway, for his tenth birthday, all he wanted was a Burrow Owl.
Kept bugging his old man. "Dad, get me a burrow owl. I'll never
ask for anything else as long as I live." So the guy
breaks down and buys him a burrow owl.

Anyway, 10:30, the other night, I go out in my yard, and there's
the Wurster kid, looking up in the tree. I say, "What are
you looking for?" He says "I'm looking for my burrow owl."
I say, "Jumping Jesus on a Pogo Stick. Everybody knows
the burrow owl lives. In a hole. In the ground. Why the hell do you
think they call it a burrow owl, anyway?" Now Stuart, do you
think a kid like that is going to know what the queers are
doing to the soil?

It seems there are many reasons not to keep owls as pets, according to the International Festival of Owls. Also, it seems that there is an International Festival of Owls.

Walking is easy.Teaching them to ice skate is a biatch though.

FTFY

A mute, aka "poop", comes out the way....well, the same way most poop comes out after it is digested, and can be pretty nasty.

A casting comes out the same way it went in, and isn't too nasty if the Owl is healthy.

Owls are a pain in the ass for Falconry.

Cats can be trained to a leash. There is an old lady here in town who has a very well-leash-trained cat, excellent for letting her outside.

I'm sure they can, but I wonder if they should. Every cat I see on a leash just looks like it's hoping a car will run it over.

That was cool. I used to have two owls that hung out in my backyard every night for a few months. They'd communicate with bottle rocket like screeches while hunting. It was awesome to watch. Then the Derecho came in suddenly and farked up my neighborhood. I haven't seen them since. I hope they made it out.

When I was a teen my brother had a falconry license (not easy to obtain). He went out of town for a week and left me to care for his great horned owl (this was back in the early 70s, the laws about them have become much stricter). I was able to highly impress the hot girl I had a thing for by showing up at her doorstep with the bird. My brother would not have approved had he found out since I was legally not supposed to be handling the bird without a license.

/got a date out of that incident

Wait what? A cat? On a leash? And you aren't afraid to sleep at night? One of these days that cat is gonna claw that kids eyes out. Cats and leashes are just unnatural. The cats on the package for the cat leashes don't even look happy. So bizarre. At least I've finally encountered someone who actually owns a cat leash. I wasn't positive they even existed until now.

The leash is to prevent that happening. I'm sorry that you look down on keeping pets safe.

Future badass-in-training, that's who.

"Someone's getting a treat!"
"Haha! Good boy!"
"That's my boy!"
"Give 'em hell, Bloodwing!"
"Like my pet, huh?"
"You looking at Bloodwing? Huh? They looking at you, boy?"
"Get 'em, Blood!"

You should get one. Even better yet two and take them with you wherever you go. Then people will always compliment you on your impressive set of hooters.

Just for the record, in North America you can go to PMITA prison for possessing an owl feather, let alone an entire owl (dead or alive) due to the migratory bird act.
