    Thought I'd give a quick up date on fatty, I mean Vinnie!! Turns out the reason he hadn't been round for his breakfast and tea for a while is because he's been leading a double life!!:eek:.. I was speaking to my neighbour in the next street along a couple of months ago and he was telling me about this super friendly fox he had been feeding, 'Freddy' is his name:D..turns out, obviously it's the same cheeky fox!! Anyway I reckon he must of heard me talking last week about how as 'Freddy' didn't need us anymore I'd start putting honey butties out( with the mange treatment in) for another scrawny looking fox that had sometimes been around...and yes you guessed it, the very next day who turns up.. Vinnie:D he's been back twice a day, breakfast and tea ever since. Here's some pics of him from this morning, he'd had his 2 chicken wings and was back for his honey sarnie, the last 2 pics are him back again, at what point he got told to bugger off, the toast in my hand was my breakfast!!

    He is looking rather fine, one spoilt little fox! I'll have to find a pic of when he first turned up, looking scrawny and scratching himself to bits in the front garden. The whole reason I sent off for the free homeopathic mange treatment and started dosing him with honey sarnies..! (And yes I am aware some believe and some don't in homeopathy), so whether it was that or the regular food he was getting I don't know, but he is doing more than great now as you can see:)

    He's a handsome boy! So healthy looking too. Foxes are so underated... if you really get to know one, they turn out to be the sweetest things. When I was 11 we had a fox who used to come to the door every day after tea and we'd feed him the leftovers. He wouldn't eat from our hand like Vinnie but, we put the food on the floor next to us and he'd come with a bit of hesitation! We named him Oxy LOL, and had him coming since he was teensy! I hope Vinnie stays such a lovely fox! :D

    also I just found out about his 0-0 and now I want a pet fox and almost looked for a breeder :,O

    That is actually an interesting article,not mad on the whole keeping animals for experimenting though( nor breeding them for fur!) but I do appreciate the knowledge acquired is of interest.

    It is pretty cruel I guess, but still a pet FOX... can't they just have bred the nicest of foxes, to create a fox dog? But tbh I don't understand much from that text XD just thougt it was interesting ;) Also, just looked at the picture of Vinnie taking the sandwhich, he looks the most beaghtiful fox I've EVER seen I'm being literal. :D
