    This Toddler Became Obsessed With A Terrifying Lawn Owl And Now They're BFFs

    Birds of a feather nap together.

    Meet Sylvie, a 1½-year-old from the Boston area, and Whootie, her beloved owl statue.

    "Sylvie just immediately became really entranced by it," her mother, Rebecca, told BuzzFeed.

    And carry it around everywhere she did.

    "It’s almost the size of her, but she likes to pick it up and run around with it," she said.

    Sylvie takes the owl wherever she goes — in the car, to the grocery store, and even to bed.

    “When I wake up in the middle of the night and look at the baby monitor, there’s an owl face staring at me, which is kind of creepy and ridiculous," Rebecca said.

    "Most people say, 'That thing’s really scary, I’m surprised she likes it,'" said Rebecca.

    "She loves owls in general," Rebecca said.

    Owl friends forever. <3
