Foxy Lady - The Dainty Squid

Foxy Lady

Tuesday, 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!

  2. Wow...I've never seen a fox like your lady!! She is so beautiful!!!! I've never seen a dark coated fox! We have the reddish brown tinted ones in Southern NY and they are so fast that even if you catch a glimpse of one you still aren't even sure you saw a fox! =P

  3. Oh my gosh! That fox is just way too cute! I once saw two foxes running in a church parking lot of Mentor, Ohio. It was really weird seeing them that far out in the suburbs.

  5. Love them! Such beautiful little things- I don't know if we have these kinds of foxes in the UK; I generally just see the red ones and they aren't as cute as this!

  7. OMG I can't even--that picture of your dad holding her is AMAZING! You should enter it in some sort of contest! Also, I think *maybe* you should put the foxes on your fabric "to make" list. A zipper pouch with Lady would be divine! <3

  8. Those foxes are so cute! And your father cracks me up. Is there anytime where he DOESN'T have a cigar? Or is it just that he refuses to be photographed without one?

    1. Hahaha, he just ALWAYS has a cigar in his mouth. He has for basically as long as I can remember.

  9. Awww, the derp one is adorable- it makes him seem more (er-I wanted to say human, but er...) foxy???
    I remember what prompted the conversation about your foxes. We saw one run across the road and I said, "ooooooh, I'd love to stroke him!" and my husband said his fur is probably all matted to which I said, "Maybe you could brush him?" and then the whole conversation escalated so, can you answer for me: does your dad brush Lady or Tramp at all or they naturally all plush and gorgeous like that!??!?!x
    Hope I can find this post again to see your replY!!!x
