India got a number of the flockers to gawk at the cuteness, so I figured the photo demanded a posting here.

I confess. I gawked. Gawked at the smallness. Gawked at the owlness. Gawked at the cuteness.
As India once said in a long-ago comment on a faraway owl:
“Want. Owl. Now.”
Step One: Put your owl in a box.
I like the feets.
Sometimes my cat looks like an owl. But I could never fasten a hat on her.
What is it with pets and hats? When I was wee, my fondest desire involved our Dalmatian and a hat.
My desire was never realized.
Did the owl-holder knit the owl-hat specially, I’m wondering? Or is there a source for off-the-rack standard-sized owl hats?
I had a biology teacher in high school who, apart from being dismissed from his position because of his tendency to get enraged and hit a piece of plywood he kept on the counter in the lab with a hammer*, had a theory that humans find all things with big eyes cute. “It’s why we think babies are cute, their eyes are too big for their heads.” We asked him about babies that weren’t cute and he slammed the hammer on the plywood.
*the hammer and plywood were placed there by him at the beginning of class just so he could do something when he got angry.
Dang, reminds me of the junior high school history teacher who told us that the cleanest place on earth was the inside of a dog’s mouth.
India would look cute in a little knitted hat like that, though I’d choose different colors for her.
Fucking owls, how do they work?
Can’t say how, Joel, but observe here.
The smallness. The owlness. The hatness.
(as a wise acquaintance said somewhere)
Holy shit that is the cutest thing I have ever seen. I cannot look away. The cuteness is all consuming.
Kelsey, I also like the feets.
I think it’s time for owl wigs.
Oh, yes. Precious little owl wigs.
The hat sits very well and I think it appears to be quite cunning.
Hmmm. May be a new chapter for Kitty Wigs…
