You could also say. Humans and pussycats on the one hand, and owls on the other are fundamentally different things.
It surely is not a random set of encounters. I suggest that there is likely to be a long prior history between that owl and that cat (and the person filming). Maybe when the cat was young it had a bad experience with that owl (or another) which is why it is not being serious. In any case an owl is a big target for a cat and is capable of fighting back.
There are many similar bits of film on the internet of odd animal encounters.

Noting the way the cat taps the owl occasionally, and following from Geoffrey's point 5, I am inclined to wonder how many owls were involved in this filming.
