These are so many people who are obsessed with owls. They have clothes with owls, their home is full of owl statuetes. But not all of them have actually had a chance to meet one really close up and to hold or just stroke it. They are so soft and lovely, but to be honest, I was a little bit scared at first.
Believe me , you don't want one as a pet, unless you are ready to get a new freezer full of frozen (and sadly cute) baby chicks... Because that's what they eat. It is really hard to to properly care for an owl as a pet.
I personally fell in love with owls because of the “Harry Potter” but J.K. Rowling said in one of the interviews very smart thing - “If anybody has been influenced by my books to think an owl would be happiest shut in a small cage and kept in a house, I would like to take this opportunity to say as forcefully as I can: You are wrong. The owls in Harry Potter books were never intended to portray the true behaviour or preference of real owls. If your owl-mania seeks concrete expression, why not sponsor an owl at a bird sanctuary where you can visit and know that you have secured him or her a happy, healthy life.”
So yeah, they are cute, funny, majestic, smart and beautiful animals but not good pets.
