Spring - The cuddly owl
This adorable young 'common owl' acts more like a kitten as it loves to be petted.
Spring, as he is named, sits quite contently as a woman pets him during an animal show in a small Italian village.
A host of Barn, Snowy and Burrowing owls were all on show but everyone wanted to see the 'common owl' named Spring.
And we're not surprised...he's simply adorable!
