That’s right, its time. You want a new furry, cute, little fox, who can snuggle you, play games with and do all those fun things foxes and humans do.
So, you were thinking who needs a cat or dog? You’re not some sort of casual are you? No. You want a pet fox.
A Male Fox is called a “dog fox” and a female is called a”vixen”. Vixen Sounds wayyy cooler then dog fox, so were going to get a female fox right. I already know she will be the perfect fit.
Let’s see, foxes have whiskers on their face and legs, which they use for navigation purposes. This may be a problem… What if your snuggling her and her leg whiskers keep rubbing against you. You may think its a bug! No worries though, just wear full PJ’s to bed, problem solved.
Their Pupils are vertical, Similar to cats, to help them see and hunt at night, but foxes are NOT cats and belong to the canine family. Aww our little girl can walk and feed herself at night and don’t have to worry about her pushing everything off of the counter. That’s a win win. I just hope the neighbors don’t let their cats and other small pets out at night, or you’ll be receiving some nasty phone calls.
Foxes have excellent hearing and red foxes have been recorded hearing a watch tic up to 40 yards away. I guess that’s kinda cool, hopefully she doesn’t start howling and barking in the middle of the night from your neighbor shutting his car door. It may not sound so bad but have you heard a fox howl before? It’s terrifying and sounds like someone being murdered. Click here to hear hear a fox howl.
Alright, yea…. nothing gets the adrenaline pumping like a fox yelping two feet away. The one thing about foxes that is not very well known is that they stink. Like Skunks, they have scent glands. They used these smells to mark territories and to show off to other foxes. I know, I Know a musty smelling house sounds pretty awesome, it will even saturate your clothing and you can smell musty even at work.
Clearly I can only see positive reasons to adopt a pet fox so leave a comment on your pet foxes name :).
