Jennifer Rutter typically appreciates the beauty of animals via the windows of her London home, but she has had an incredible and beautiful visitor since February. Jennifer’s yard is frequented by a brazen little fox who likes sunbathing on her window ledge. She couldn’t be happier with her delightful guest.
The woman is unconcerned about having a wild fox as a neighbor, especially because it is a very friendly and quiet animal. She also frequently gives Jennifer gifts at her window as a token of appreciation.
Jennifer explained to The Dodo:
“I see that bitch virtually every day, and she’s one of our neighborhood’s favorites. From their rooms’ windows, the children look after her.
Through the glass, a fox meets a kitten.
“She seems very polite and gentle. She [Ella steps] off the sidewalk to let people through and aside from the debris she leaves in my yard, she’s very welcome! She has brought me so many ‘gifts’. I had a bag of moldy lemons, lots of chicken legs, a single sausage, a little toy car; bread seems to be one of the favorites.”
However, no one had actually engaged with the wild animal until that point, so when Rutter’s cat Dodo decided to make a new buddy, he didn’t hesitate to approach the interested fox.
Dodo was in the home office with her mother when the fox reappeared at the window. So, without hesitation, the daring cat decided to take advantage of the opportunity to play with the wild fox.
“I was on my knees with Dodo, pointing to the fox. She leaped out the window, attracting the fox’s attention, and I began shooting. She’d never seen them communicate before, and seeing them mirror each other was quite emotional.”
Dodo fiddled with the window, uttered small chirps of greeting, and then joyfully went about his work, the observant fox observed carefully. Jennifer is excited to see what presents the fox will bring at her next encounter, and the woman and Dodo are looking forward to future visits from the fox.
Jennifer concluded by saying:
“The fox appeared interested and playful to me, rather than threatening. It seemed as though Dodo had interrupted her and she was graciously providing some attention to the tiny cat.”
