bolshie foxy
« on: July 06, 2017, 10:12:32 pm »
I have a couple of foxes living in the bushes at the back of my garden and I often see them sunbathing a the back or hear them running around squeaking one of Archie's discarded toys, I am all for live and let live but they are really getting bolshie now.

When I had Sallythe JRT stayingshe used to run out barking at them but soon stopped when she realised they wont run and in fact chased her back to the conservatory!

Yesterday Archie came running in closely followed by one of the foxes, who had the audacity to come intot he conservatory and stare at me on the sofa, I shouted at him but he didn't run! so I got up to chase him out and he only went as far as the patio really cheeky :o :o :o :o

Think they are chasing my cats too who are getting antsy and Archie is reluctant to go out in the garden - and he loved his garden - he would spend all day outside given a chance and nice weather :-[ :-[

I feel your pain Ruth! Im the same an animal lover - but the foxes here are starting to get us all down - lot's of death style screeching at night time and our front garden seems to be a boxing ring throughout the night for all foxes who fancy a fight! Drives Violet mad too - used to just tap on the window to get them to clear off - but now I have to run outside - not sure how long that's going to be effective? Sounds like they're going to take over the world!! it pains me to say it but they are getting too much! and becoming a pest  :-\

Oh dear...im afraid I encourage mine...5 of them come to the back gate(we are in the woods so it is woodland) and wait for their food...every day they wait...now that toddy is no longer there to run up t othe gate..they have no reason not to sit their and wait..i have names for them to and I call them...you are probably all in disgust with me..but they do no harm here and I love them...maybe a different story when we get a new Bullie..but till then..we have the |badgers too!!! They aren't so brazen...but still come for food when no one is around!!

I throw some scraps out to the foxes although Mark dislikes them.
We all have the right to life and I love them. Paddy likes to chase them fortunately he can never catch them!

Yes...yours are very bold Ruth...especially with Archie about!!!!!! They do have some front...but ours used to site right against the gate when Toddy was here...and as he used to charge at them...they would wait tilll the very last second before they scarpered....LOL ;D ;D ;D

well Lucy would never have stood for that but Archie is not really a fighter - his motto is live and let live too. :P :P

It is only dogs he has an issue with and then that was probably down to a couple of incidents that happened not least of which was when the big dog attacked Sally and nearly killed her while Archie was there :( :(

If I take out Violet too early in the morning and she see's a fox she chases the it and gets pretty crazed about them  >:( If she could speak I think she would really like to kill one  :-[ she really really hates them and as we apparently have the biggest population of them down here this is an ongoing problem  ??? ???

My Lucy was like that - don't like to admit it but she did catch a fox in the garden - she won :o :o :o had to take her to vets for cuts and scratches and to ensure she was ok and had to admit it to them too :-[ :-[ :-[
