Owls have proven time and time again that they are adorable We know that cats pretty much dominate the blogosphere in terms of cute videos, but we’ll take a d’aww filled owl video over another “kitten vs. blank” any day.

Take this lovely owl video, for instance. It’s not hard to see why it’s gotten almost a million views by now. The star of the show — a little one getting the head-rub of his (or her) life — is obviously the best part. But there’s also music, and the drama of a jealous owl nearby.

 

Cats just might have some competition in the viral video department.
