    My cat got sprayed twice last summer cavorting with skunks.  I wiped him down with a paper towel and the stink dissipated by the next morning.  He didn't seem to mind stinking to high heavens, though.

    I've never seen an owl in the wild except once.  Last night I walked closer and closer to the hooting, but the owl stopped hooting before I could find him.

    While walking through Harvard Yard over 30 years ago one winter evening, I saw students looking up into a tree.  There I saw a Snowy Owl eating a rat, I think.  Eww!  The owl was beautiful, though.

    4 winters ago, I cross country skied too far to get home before dusk and was frankly a little frightened making my way back in the dark.  I was at the remotest part of the Town Forest, furthest from any home, when I heard a loud weird screeching.  My heart leaped.  I skied like the dickens home.  I got on line and listened to all the owl calls and realized that what I heard was a Screech Owl.
