Foxy LadyTuesday, February 09, 2016
It's been since November of last year that I shared photos of the foxes. In that time they haven't grown all that much but boy, oh boy, did they get fluffy. They are definitely prepared for winter. It's been such a mild one, with some days reaching up into the sixties, that I have to wonder if they get warm. This post from August shows just how much thicker her fur is. She looks so scrawny in that post, and now she's just a ball of fluff.
No Tramp in these photos, yet again. He is a stinker, still asserting his dominance. Lady will allow my dad to pick her up to carry her over to the pen in the yard where I photograph them. Tramp on the other hand won't but as soon as the door is closed he starts to go wild. He digs at the door like "Hey! What about me?! I want to come play too." I really wish he wasn't such a brat because he is absolutely gorgeous. People always seem to like photos of him best. I suppose it's because, as my niece exclaimed upon seeing him for the first time, "he looks like a real fox!" Anyway, here are some gratuitous photos of this beautiful creature.
It blows my mind how this little critter, who I hardly believed was a fox, grew into this majestic looking beast. I never noticed before but it appears her eyes changed colors too!
Just because I want to ruin this vision you have in your head of this being a graceful animal, here is the derp-iest fox photo in existence. You're welcome. ;)
Just a note to add that foxes definitely aren't for everyone. They require a lot of work, care, and attention. Not to mention in most states they are illegal to keep as pets unless you have a license. Please do your research!
