Peter Middleton found a little lost baby owl flat on the ground. The owl was in pretty terrible shape.
He was covered all over with mud and he had a pretty acute infection in his feet. Seeing his deplorable condition, Mr. Middleton couldn’t help himself and decided to rescue the owl.
Mr. Middleton named this owl Bertie. He took him to the vet. He stayed in the vet’s care for around two months.
Once he recovered and was getting healthy, he became pretty active too, flying around. So, the vet asked Mr. Middleton to take him and keep him with other birds specifically owls.
Mr. Middleton took him home and put him inside his dog cage on his back porch. Bertie seemed pretty uncomfortable so Mr. Middleton took him out and brought him inside the house.
From that day onward, Bertie stays inside the house. He doesn’t like to go outside so instead, he keeps Mr. Middleton company.
Mr. Middleton takes special care of him and feeds him chicks and mice. Following are some pictures of Bertie with Mr. Middleton during his various indoor activities.

Bertie prefers staying inside and helping Peter out with the daily chores.
Bertie likes to sit on the saucepans while Mr. Middleton is busy with his chores in the kitchen.
Another part of Bertie’s routine is to take a bath in the dog’s bowl or in a container for him to bathe in.
Afterward, he likes to dry his feathers out.
Bertie keeps an eye out of the window as well and intimates if someone arrives by hooting.
One of Bertie’s most favorite activities is to help Mr. Middleton with tea and loves to sit on the handle of the kettle.
