Just how many?

| April 29, 2010

I thought, before today, that we had three cubs in our foxy family. But this appears not to be the case; count the sets of little glowing eyes in last night’s first video… And in the second, one of the cubs learns that his mother’s tail is NOT a chew toy. (Click on “more” to [...]

Videos: 27th and 28th April

| April 28, 2010

The cubs are starting to become a little bolder. They’re seen in the following videos “helping” their mother gather some food, and then making their way out to feed without her — although they’re still much happier when she’s around. (Click on “more” to view the videos.)

No, seriously, how am I supposed to get any work done around here?

I’ve just been out into the garden and, as has happened quite often lately, there was a *rustle*crash* as of something seeing me and legging it over the back fence. This time, that something was slow enough that I could tell it was one of the local foxes. But there was still a bit of [...]
