Countless bondings witnessed overnight. Mel left to go hunting 7:59pm and his first treat of the night was a large gopher that was down sized and then gulped down.
Next gifted treat to Sydney was a small mousie slider that she put in her pantry.
He kicked it up a notch, ok several notches by bringing wascally wabbits 10:40, 11:37 & 12:37. Sydney ate 1 of the wabbits 12:57am.
She was standing by the door when the irksome 3rd owl landed on the far end of the playground 2:36am. She moved to the back left corner standing upright defensively.
The 3rd owl flew off 1 minute later 2:37.
Syd finally moved 5:33am squatting & rasping. We hoped to see a last minute arrival of Mel but he decided to give Syd some alone time for the day.
