Hello friends, we had a visitor today, this little fox. Just hanging right behind our pool fence, for hours. Very close to the house. I have never seen a fox do this before so I called the animal control officer in town.
She said that this fox must be socialized and not afraid of us. She didn't think it was sick because he (or she) was just cleaning himself and hanging around.
Crazy how wildlife is being forced to live in neighborhoods. When he ran off, I quickly put out the dogs and they went crazy which meant he must have been close by. Ariel kept sniffing the air and Buffy was barking like mad.
Buffy is now keeping guard and Mr Chips has no idea what the heck is going on!
Thank you everyone for being so kind the other day. I really appreciated all your kind words and reassurance. I will let you know how things turn out but today was a much better day!
