Jennifer Rutter loves observing nature from the windows of her London home. But she’s had a pretty unique visitor since February.
A daring young fox enters her yard on a daily basis and enjoys basking on Rutter’s window ledge.
“I see that fox almost every day, and she’s a local favorite,” Rutter told The Dodo. “The youngsters keep an eye on her from their bedroom windows.”
Rutter doesn’t mind living next to a wild fox, especially because the vixen is so well-mannered. “She appears to be quite kind and gentle,” Rutter observed. “[She walks] off the sidewalk to allow others to pass, and, aside from the trash she puts in my yard, she’s really welcome!”
The fox even brings Rutter presents and leaves them on her porch. “It’s brought me so many ‘gifts,’” Rutter said. “I’ve got a bag of rotting limes, a bunch of chicken drumsticks, a single sausage, a little toy car – bread appears to be a favorite.”
Nobody had ever seen the wild fox until last week, when Rutter’s cat, Dodo, chose to make a new buddy.
Dodo was in the home office with her mother when the fox came at the window. The courageous tiny cat leaped at the chance to play with the wild fox.
“Dodo was on my knee, and I showed out the fox,” Rutter said. “She ran up to the window and got the fox’s attention, and I began filming.” I’d never seen them communicate before, and seeing them mimic each other was quite moving.”
Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
