Man and dog are natural best friends, right? This delightful Vine account from a Japanese fellow and his unusual pet suggests man and owl could be even closer. 

Sure, you say, an owl seems like an impractical house pet. But look at it this way: an owl would eradicate all the pests in your home and scare away intruders. Martha Stewart would approve enthusiastically. 

Living with an owl in your apartment might seem scary at first, but it’s not.

And giving your owl a bath in mysteriously green water seems like a lot of work.

An owl will not play fetch with you like a dog.

And owls are judgmental, like the best kind of cats.

But if you give your owl enough love, he will let you pet him.

He might even cherish you and nibble on your sleeve.

Having an owl seems endlessly chill.
