Any animal that is wide awake one minute and then thinks its instantly night time when you put a towel over their cage is useless.

Oh, trust me: they know better. I've heard them singing and hissing when the sheet is over.

I hate to disagree.. but when I was in Arizona we had an owl that made his home under our front patio. He would look in the windows at us, sit on the pots outside, take a bath in the fountain, sun himself, etc... Very friendly.. would let us get right up to him. At night before he'd fly off he would do his little song (trill I think it's called) if we went outside.

We called him Oscar. He even got a girlfriend just before we moved. She'd sit on his head (no joke). She was an odd one. She would watch us through the window in the laundry room as we would fold clothes and iron. Sometimes I'd be on the couch in the living room and she'd position herself so she could look at the bright laptop screen and twitch her head.. really odd!

They were however the cutest things on earth IMHO. Here's a picture of of Oscar...

That is awesome. You probably never had a rat problem there, huh?

I owned cockatiels - and no, they really don't.

My mother told me that when she was a girl, her stepdad once found a baby owl, which had fallen out of the nest, while he was searching mushrooms in a forest (my grandfather loved traditional southern German cooking, with venison, mushrooms and dumplings).
He took the owl home and they raised it as a pet. My mother told me that it would e.g. sit on top of the kitchen door whenever they were cutting meat and it would like to swipe down and nick a piece of meat from the kitchen table if they were not watchimg.
It was one of this species:

I also used to own Cockatiels and I've got to say that they are quite cute and intelligent (as all parrots).

Yep, my Samoyed puppy is a lot more cuddly and fun. I like animals you can bear hug.

Yup! Birds are - well, for the birds. You can't stroke them, you can't take them for a walk, they shit all over your living room and leave bloody feathers everyhere.

Now, a cat, THATS a pet!!
