I just want to point out that Athena's sacred animal is an owl. I am obsessed with Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase right now so dont judge me. Anyway I have held owl many times before although I did not recall this when I made this goal. The last that I remember was at the Aviary. It was a screech owl I think. Anyway, I think it pooped on the floor while I was holding it but I love owls so much so I didnt care.
