Creepy Or Cute: Owls With Cat Heads

While we think that these hybrid animals are hilarious, but we cannot decide if these cat-headed owls are too cute or more than a little creepy.

Inspired by a “catowl” character in children’s animated series The Last Airbender, BuzzFeed has put up a collection of digitally manipulated images where the heads of cats have been photoshopped onto the bodies of owls.

Surprisingly, the results are not as odd as one would imagine—in fact, the two species seem to fit rather nicely together in this part mammal, part bird form.

What do you think—would the catowl be the perfect pet or an evolutionary abomination?
