It Has Come To Our Attention That Anything....
....involving foxes tends to always be a bit strange. While looking for fox sounds on the YouTube, we found one where there was a pair, either a mated pair, or they were siblings, on a trampoline!! They were jumping & running around on it having a very good time. It was a very good thing that the home owner video taped them doing that because no one would have believed it!! Especially ME!!! But now I see them as a "wild" animal that seems to be caught between domesticated & wild. Not being completely one or the other!

More videos showed foxes that were able to get into the house through the doggie door. A teenage boy kept telling his parents a fox was coming to his bed at night & waking him up! When he'd be fully awakened, the fox would run away. The parents naturally thought their son was suffering from too much stress from school & he was dreaming this encounter, which had happened many times! So, borrowing some of his friends video cameras, he set up 3 of them. One in the kitchen where it entered through the doggie door. Another at the base of the stairs where it videoed the fox going straight up those stairs to the bedrooms of the house. The 3rd was on his night stand or desk but it had a clear view of the doorway & bed. Without much hesitation the fox jumped up on the bed from the foot then very slowly crept up to the boy's FACE!! He didn't bite. But he did sniff around which this is what woke him up. As soon as he stirred, like a shot that fox was off the bed, down those stairs, and exiting through the doggie door!

That would end ANY doggie doors at our house. Those foxes know how to break & enter better than any cat burglar! Both of those behaviors are so very odd! They seem to want to play with cats & dogs. They want some interaction with humans but not be "petted" by humans, like that is beneath them. It is truly a mystery. That is what we're sticking with anyways.

They seem to make many different noises. It just depends on what is going on.

Hope you had a splendid day with Miss LaLo & Miss Jenny. See ya around, SamIAm
