Some of you will remember, from an earlier Post, that we have had some fox activity in our immediate area. Various neighbors have reported sightings of numerous little foxes and, just the other morning (around 6:00am), I heard such a commotion outside that I went out to investigate.
There was a fox who seemed quite happy to share our driveway with me. He suddenly turned and wandered over to the neighbors front lawn, while I investigated another rather raucous bark. Just around the corner was another small fox who, apart from being distracted by my sudden appearance, was clearly focused on the underside of Carol’s car. A quick look underneath her car, and there was the reason for the fox’s attention … a cat!
Hearing more noises from across the street ………………….
The one on the left decided to come over and see me (stopping for a brief scratch).
… and then he/she just seemed to settle down in our front garden.
There are so many advantages to getting up around 5:00am – 6:00am every morning. One gets to see a different world! How did Ray react? He didn’t. He must have known that they were out there and, from his perspective, in his territory. Perhaps his earlier life as a stray taught him to just accept them, or perhaps he has a healthy respect for a pack of anything on four legs? Of course, given his strong dislike of cats, he was probably happy that a fox had got one trapped under a car!
