Astonishing footage of an owl scooting a cat off of a sofa has appeared on video streaming website YouTube.

By G. John Cole, 6 Mar 2019

In Edward Lear’s classic proto-surrealist poem, an owl and a pussy-cat put aside their differences and sail away from their humdrum lives in a pea-green boat, taking just “honey, and plenty of money/Wrapped up in a five-pound note.” It is never revealed where or how they obtained the human cash. In subsequent verses, the unlikely couple sing each other love songs, before being married by a turkey priest and dining on the mincemeat of an undisclosed third party.

But documentary footage released on March 1st of this year has revealed that after years of marriage, the relationship has declined into bickering and selfishness.

Too long have we tarried

The video, which was published under the title ‘Owl Spooks Cat Off Couch – 1019972,’ comes with no explanation – just contact details for licensing opportunities. It is not clear who shot the footage, although human or even owl-like laughter is heard from behind the camera.

The action opens with a large tawny owl approaching a resting cat on a black leather sofa. The owl pecks at the cat, who has apparently stolen the owl’s prized nesting spot, and at first the cat gives as good as it gets. But when the owl brings its claws into play, the cat ducks and rolls from its original position.

Inelegant fowl

Although the cat returns a couple of perfunctory paw jabs, the battle is over the moment the miserable mog first cedes space. The owl uses its powerful bird knees to finish the job, nudging the cat until the dismal creature has no choice but to scarper.

Having reclaimed his cosy territory, the owl performs a brief victory cackle, before staring coldly into the camera lens. 

Wamiz reporters are observing the situation as it develops. Reports that a dish and a spoon have been found dead in an apparent suicide pact in the locality are yet to be confirmed.
