Memorial Day weekend I went out to my parents to visit and of course, had to snag some photos of the fox pups. They were nearly two months old at the time of these photos and boy, they have grown leaps and bounds since I last saw them.
There are five of them, three black and two red. It will forever be so weird to me that this happens when animals have babies. They don’t look like siblings at all! I think everyone in my family would agree that the red ones are theeee cutest. Clearly that’s not to say the other aren’t cute but there’s just something about the red ones! My dad has taken a liking to one in particular which he has named Sally-Ann.
I feel like these little guys are a lot friendlier than Lady and Tramp were at this age. When my dad placed them in the fenced in area with me they were all skeptical to leave their box but quickly warmed up. They darted around, jumping and tumbling with each other. They weren’t too skittish with me unless I moved too quickly, otherwise they were more than happy to run across my legs and let me pet them. So so so fuzzy!!!
Just like their parents, the pups were very curious about dogs. Below you can see my brother’s dog, Max, and Midnight, the only fox without a white tipped tail, sharing a moment. SO sweet. I bet the fox pups would love to wrestle with him!
And that’s my fox update for today. I’ll be sure to share more photos as soon as possible!
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. They
are very cute, obviously, but aren’t exactly ideal pets. Please do your research!
