Since there seems to be boardom
I'll post this excerpt from another forum I contribute to.
I occasionally sleep on the deck in my back yard when it's hot outside. One morning I woke up to see a fox kit still wet with amniotic fluid crawl out from under the deck.
Unbelievably the grey fox gave birth to three kits under the deck while I was sleeping on it.
A couple of nights later fox mother jumped over me as I was looking up at the stars float by.
Yet another couple of nights later the fox mother came up and nipped at my sandals while I was trying to sleep.When the kits were about 6 weeks old the mother fox nipped at my ear while I was sleeping.
That was enough to get me to stop sleeping on the deck. I heard her hunting all night and watched her kits grow up until about a week ago when the fox charged someone one walking a dog that resulted in the sheriff putting out a trap to catch her - thinking that she's rabid.
I know she isn't rabid. The deputy caught one of the kits which spooked the mother fox so she moved herself and the kits on to higher ground.
It was really neat to watch her and the kits play in my yard - even though they broke a lot of potted plants playing around in the yard.
Now she's moved so I don't see her much anymore. I know she's still around because my cats are still somewhat afraid to go outside.
I was having fun watching them play around and hunt.
