Fox in the city

This morning I looked out of my bedroom window and saw my local fox asleep in a pile of leaves at the end of my garden.

I feel honoured to share my garden with this lovely creature. Over the past few years I have seen her raise two litters of cubs and they are wonderful to watch.

It is true that foxes can be a pest. My fox and her family have frequently made a mess of my garden by digging holes and running all over the flower beds. However, I consider this to be a small price to pay for the joy of having foxes as such close companions.
