I have a new friend! He is an elderly owl who belonged to a friend for years and years, but upon discovering that I like the occasional owl, my friend thought that I might enjoy his company an awful lot, and so she gave him to me.
Today was the first day that I took him outside for a little look-see and what I discovered was that he desperately needed a bath. So, several hefty doses of Endust and a stiff toothbrush later, he looks much better; his plumage is shiny and bright, and his eyes are no longer cloudy. After his cleaning, he looked so dapper and cheerful that I realized he deserved his very own post on my blog.
He is a very clever little owl and comes apart so that I can store things in his little baskety body. I guess he can't hold anything too heavy, so probably bits of string or other fluffy things are ideal materials for him to hold.
