FUR BALLS

Another weekend as come and gone. I was happy to say the least, we got yet another kiss from the Snow Queen, which made for a peaceful Saturday night walk around the neighborhood here. Some call me nuts, but it is rather relaxing to walk in the still of the night  time. I also heard the cries of the fox around here. They used to sound horrifying before I knew what they were, but I am now comforted by them when I hear them. I remember two summers ago while sitting outside very late at night and one came inches from me and just sat there. I never really noticed just how beautiful they were, and decided if they could ever be pets, I'd have one in a heart beat. I can most certainly indentify with their personality. Through the magic of Instagram I have met some very cool people, like the owner of a cute squirrel Jill that I posted about here. There are some people out there who fall in love with animals, bring them home, and raise them as their family members. And recently, I've become buddies with n  interesting lady,  who has a very peculiar pet out there, who certainly doesn’t fit the bill of a “conventional pet.”




Juniper is a medium-size red fox who was brought home by her human mom when she was just a tiny baby.She has her own Instagram account, and has gained more than 100,000 followers to date, and entertains all her fans with playful photos and videos.Still, as cute as she is, Juniper causes a little trouble around the house from time to time. The best thing that owners can do, if they choose to take care of foxes, is to give these stunning, wild creatures the respect they deserve. Juniper also live  with her other fox Fig...and both get along very well with the family dog. So heart warming to see each day.

Hopefully this post will  make you melt today...I know it does me
Happy Monday All!!!

    A fox is something I've never seen in the wild and lived in a place where bears walked down the streets during daylight. Luckily we had alleys.

  2. I am now officially a big butterscotch puddle! What do foxes sound like? When first married, we lived across the alley from a landmark house of some kind. I awoke one night to the sound of a woman being slaughtered. Turns out it was a peacock! Sure gets the ol' ticker going.

    1. Oh yes....peacoks are loud...i have several around here up the road. Foxes sound more like a woman with a blood crudderling scream. It scared the living he'll out of me. Often you'll hear it at night. It's either two females defending their territory or a mother calling her young.

    2. Thanks, Maddie. I learn so much here :) It's hard to believe a critter so little and cute would make that kind of sound. I think I read somewhere (or it may have been Dog 101 on Animal Planet) that chiwawas (going with phonetics here) may be descended from a fox ancestor. They do have a little bit of a facial resemblance.

    3. The Mistress certainly is the expert on men, drag queens, cocktails and animals....but in no certain order.

  3. I worked for a man who brought his coyote to work each day. She was sweet as can be. One must always remember when taking in an animal like this that they do have natural instincts that will come out from time to time, and you cannot punish them for it.

    Have a wonderful, wonderful day. Hugs!

  4. I've never known anyone to have a pet fox but I knew someone who raised a baby raccoon as a pet. But it turned vicious as an adult. Still a wild animal, of course.

  5. I knew someone once who had a half dog-half wolf. Though it looked more like a wolf, thankfully, it had the personality of a dog.

  7. Oh they are soooo cute! FYI it's 53 here. Today, that could be the temperature, the wind gust speed, or both.

  9. Mistress...you may say what you might, but I know you are a real sweet heart and romantic in private and have a huge heart and this post proves it!!! Those are the sweetest pictures. The dog and fox together have indeed melted me. I have seen her Instagram and I too felt every day. Amazing isn't it?
