Making himself at home

Posted By on February 12, 2011

Our correspondent Elizabeth Lovegrove reports from Oxford that they had an overnight visitor, the night before last. They came down in the morning and found a young fox comfortably curled up on their sofa (and their two cats having run away from it, looking decidedly underwhelmed). It backed off to hide under a table when it noticed them:

Apparently this is a well-trained fox, though; no mess!

Elizabeth hypothesises that the fox came in through their cat flap — their cats won’t keep collars on so they can’t use a magnetic flap. (I have suggested that they look into cat flaps which will read the ID chips from the back of the cats’ necks; our Sureflap has kept foxes out before now.)
