Can’t stop making OC’s. They’re not up to the same par as the others I’ve done but meehhhh….. I just wanted the idea down. These two goobers aren’t from a story but rather a poem, The Owl and the Pussycat.

The Owl is either going to be Athena or Bubo. I kinda wanna do Bubo. She’s a Royal (”Most owls are meant to stay in the back, but I get to be in the forefront?! That’s huge!!”) who sucks at playing the lute. She’ll learn at some point. She wears a spoon, which no one really knows what it means but she knows its in her story.

The Pussycat, I believe Catalina will be her name. She was a tentative Royal, I wasn’t sure what I wanted at first. Now I just want them to be sickeningly sweet with each other. Around her neck she wears the ring from her mother, the previous Pussycat. She still thinks it’s weird it was a pigs nose ring.

So…. Yea! Two more dorks to add to the pile…. With possibly more to come because what really is self control :|

During my time spent on tumblr perusing photos of cute baby animals, I’ve seen a lot of photosets where a photo of a very cute plush doll was misidentified as a real baby owl. And I happen to think the real thing is fantastically adorably awkward and deserves to be cooed over too. So here is a photoset of actual baby owls for your viewing pleasure.

It’s…BEAUTIFUL. And they even used my favorite word, PLUMICORNS! 😁

I’m so excited for this program, although I don’t know when I’ll be able to see it because it looks like it’ll only be available in Canada for awhile. I mean, I know there are ways to get around that, but in any case, aaaahhh I’m super excited for this. More owl documentaries please!!
