    I heard years ago that an owl can pick up a small dog and fly off with it, I take small dogs out and stay with them until potties are done. We have woods around us and I hear them at different times of the year hooting to others, had a couple fly over the house, we have a patio cover, I wouldn't want to tangle with them, talons are sharp as razors blades.
    They are beautiful.

    Yes, I worry about the cat because we have fox and coyote as well as the owls, eagles and hawks. As a rule, she only goes outside if I am out in the garden. She likes to play jungle out there. LOL. I don't let her out at night or leave her out overnight. And in the winter, she has NO interest in going out at all.
    Our dog is big enough that she isn't in danger. LOL, I can barely pick her up. Especially when she doesn't want to move and does that dead weight limp thing.

    Keep all small animals inside. Owls are beautiful but they eat small animals. One got my Snickers (he was a white cat) when I didn't know he was out. His first trip was his last. Be careful.

    We have great horned owls in our area and sometimes they nest in our eukalyptus trees. When they do, we usually get one of the young in our yard before it is really ready to fly. Depending on the age of the little one (and that is a figurative term) Pat will put it up in the tree or over in the neighbors field (no dogs there). We have an agreement with Mom and Dad (also with the red-tailed hawks) that we take care of their babies and they leave our cats alone. So far so good.

    Thank you for sharing. I'd blow it up and frame it.
