The Fox Purrs Like a Cat

The fox looks like a dog and purrs like a cat but is neither, nor is the fox a “pest”.  I hate people who say that foxes are pests and need to be controlled. It is just plain ignorance. It is usually the rich toffs who say this.

They have the nicest nature of any animal I have ever met. (you will hear that in the video below)

Any adult fox will look after any youngster regardless of the relationship…to often the fox is painted as the villain…in fact that is totally contrary to his nature…

Please respect foxes. I live in a place where some people are frightened of them (God knows why) and some hate them. In the block of flats (condo) where I live, we are not meant to feed them. I feed them. I have helped two foxes and both have lived short lives and been killed at about three years of age. I miss them both.

We should learn to live with foxes. I have found then friendly and very cautious with people (wisely). I love foxes, always have.

  1. What a lovely house and grounds!
    Foxes are very like dogs once tamed as can be seen in that lovely video, so how come many fox hunters care about their dogs (or do they care really?) yet they enjoy seeing those dogs pursue a fox, very like a dog, to exhaustion then rip him to bits!
    Yes foxes are wild animals and best left in the wild if at all possible, they have a place in the scheme of things and Nature should be allowed to take care of their numbers and survival of the fittest naturally, just as with all wild animals and birds.
    Again it’s a case of people having the power to take innocent animals lives!
    Those wanting the hunting law here repealed are sick in the mind, I don’t know how any human being could be so cruel and bloodthirsty and desperate to be able to overturn a law that consigned their ‘sport’ to the history books.

  2. I loved the video Micheal and I can’t think either why some people are scared of foxes don’t hurt them and they won’t hurt you.
