Sorry for the string of posts on finance and economics. Boring, I know.
Here’s something cuddly for you – a cute (rabid?) fox!
Yes, I finally got to see the elusive fox this evening. She has taken a liking to the doormat outside one of our doors to the terrace. It is a sheltered spot and under cover from the rain thanks to a balcony of the apartment upstairs so I think she might have taken to sleeping there.
She’s not as shy as I would expect as the photos will testify and she only really wanders off if you actually open the door. So, just enough respect to bugger off when you need her to but brave enough to be watched and photographed.
She’s got a nasty looking sore on the rear of her back and tail as if she’s scraped all the fur off scrambling under a fence and looks to my inexpert eye to be quite old. I know I shouldn’t but I threw some scraps of meat which she wolfed (or should that be ‘foxed’) down. Well, she looks like she needs a bit of TLC and I give coins to beggars so why not a little meat to a fox?
I’m aware that European foxes carry rabies, so we’ll be careful. I moved the doormat out from under the cover as I don’t want her to think this is home!
