And like a teenager, Fluffy realized he could talk to girls. One day, he brought a fully wild female owl to the feeding platform.
And the whirlwind that he brought to this family's life began to subside, as Fluffy fell into another sort of tempest altogether - the love kind.
Breeding season arrived. And Fluffy, who was once supposed to be someone's pet, went fully, mercifully wild - just the way he was always meant to be - and started a family of his own.
"He would sit and watch you from a distance," Murray says, "just to make sure you're OK."
Love would eventually lure Fluffy from the human world. But it was also love that brought him into this family's life in the first place - the kind that comes from dedicated animal lovers at the Owl Rescue Centre.
