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!
