They probably grew up together. It's awesome how natural enemies can get along once they grow up together. Does this owl deliver mail :P

The cat had its claws trimmed, there's no way it can reach for the owl like that without snagging on something. Nonetheless, its really satisfying when I see "enemies" play/live together. I get warm and fuzzy all over. <3

#4 How could you know about the cat's claws? Is it yours?
I'm pretty sure both of them have what it needs to hurt or even kill each other.
But i agree with the rest of your comment.

It's nice to see natural enemies get along with each other, even if that wouldn't happen without human interference.
Let us all learn from that! ::(|)

If these two can understand each other there's still hope for the human race.

The first thing i thought about was the children poem when i saw this

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.

It's like humans. When food isn't a part of the equation any longer you'll be "friends" with anything. Clearly a tame cat and well known to the owl to not consider it as food.

My old cat used to play with gerbils as in not killing them or hurting them in any way. My second cat however killed more than 15 gerbils. Clearly it did that because of the thrill and lack of respect for the hierarchy.
