Baby Foxes Appeared at a House and the Images are Melting Hearts


Many people believe that foxes are mean animals with no good inside them. But in fact, they too can be really adorable.

Nature seems to flourish with quarantine holidays as it has driven all of us to the point of insanity. It seems as if we’re going to receive a pleasant summer this year.

Recently, an elderly lady in Illinois, US, had a great time with two baby foxes on her porch. Red foxes are considered as local animals to Illinois thus, there was no surprise to see a couple of babies around. However, the two baby foxes would often go up to her sliding doors, and that’s the exact place where these images were taken.

These images were shared on Reddit by a person named Vechrotex and it’s her grandma who was lucky enough to meet these two baby foxes.

The grandma of Vetrotex has captured all these images of the two fluffy balls at the first time they came to visit her. The images went viral within seconds.

The lady explained that the visits of these little guys are quite often to her, in an interview. The two baby foxes often come around her house along with the mother who would check on them while playing and poking their noses.

The two baby foxes could have been around two to four weeks of age as their eyes were widely opened. Normally the infants of the foxes only open their eyes after two weeks of birth.

Additionally, these infants heavily depend on mother’s milk for the first month and gradually start consuming solid food. Finally these infants become perfect hunters with the time.

“Here in Illinois we get red foxes in forested areas, we see them a lot and it’s not that big of a deal,” Vechrotex told Bored Panda. “One day my grandma saw a baby red fox and took a picture of it. She shared the picture with me and I thought it was just so cute, I decided to post it. I’m glad I was able to make so many people happy! The mom comes by a lot more than the babies. She is always close when her babies are on the porch.”

However, grandma was enjoying the visits of these playful infants on her porch.

Unfortunately, not everyone shares the same heartwarming stories about these little ones.

Another person wrote on Reddit:

“One of our neighbors had a small pet door in their back door. A fox cub let itself in, ate all the cat’s food, and then fell asleep in the space between the refrigerator and the wall. The mama fox tried to get in to retrieve her cub but could not fit in the pet door or was afraid to attempt it. So the neighbor’s closed all the interior doors to the kitchen and left the backdoor open so mama and cub could be reunited.”
