So the cat dragged an owl into Colton Wright’s house and being the smart fellow that he is he grabbed the first thing he could think of to remove the winged intruder: A Swiffer.
Anyone else see a TV commercial coming out of this?
Wright, now dubbed “The Owl Whisperer,” posted two YouTube videos last week that show his hair-raising adventure that went on for more than 45 minutes.
Be forewarned, he cusses. Not surprising, because we can tell you right now that if this happened to us, we’d be cursin’ too.

“Sadly, I found out through this video I scream. Not just scream, but borderline hysterics,” he noted about the first video.
Then somehow he manages to hold a Swiffer in one hand and his phone in the other to videotape the remarkable removal process.
Our hand would have been shaking as we stared down that unblinking big-eyed bird of prey on the end of the sweeper.
“He was sucking my soul out,” Wright joked to one media outlet.
YouTube viewers who didn’t know that Wright’s cat brought the owl into the house had fun wondering how it got in. Some of our favorite theories:
“Hedwig had a package for him, but he refused to leave cause he was tired.”
“The owl just walked in and the guy told him to sit down and have a drink and they argued so BAM things happened!”
