New Friend

We have a new little critter hanging around the office. She doesn't seem to be hurt and the river is about a 1/4 mile away, though I'm not sure why she's selected here to hang. So what should I feed her? I did give her some water and crackers though I'm sure that's not the best thing to feed her. I've named her Pearl.

Fox News

I believe they have moved out. The evening of the same day that Mr. Sorrow and Zeke scent-marked their territory, mama fox brought the kits up to where I took that last photo. She waited till she saw our heads in the window and then chased the kits headlong out of the meadow and into the woods to our west. Then she came back close to the house, made sure we were watching her, and then ran screaming and conspicuous across the road and into the meadow to the east, bounding like a red and gold dolphin against the green green new grass. An astonishing display of foxiness. We haven't seen any of them since. Godspeed, little furballs.

It'll end in tears

Our neighbors are up from New York. He called us today to say that "our" foxes were on his land and that he was going to have to get a sight for his .22. (They have a cat.) This is something of a hollow threat, as he's legally blind, but we have other neighbors with guns.

I feel guilty. We have no business trying not to disturb them: If they become tame, they're toast. The best thing that could happen is if we could persuade them to move out. The trouble is, then they become someone else's foxes. Not a neighborly thing to do. Still, Mr. Sorrow brought Zeke down for another sniff and a pee, and he let him dig around the den some. Supposedly if we disturb their habitat enough, they'll leave. And then what? Kill some chickens? A cat? Get killed themselves? Damn.

Sue knitted a mobius strip! It has an upturned bit at the bottom in this photo, but somehow she managed to knit a loop with ONE face and ONE edge. I think it's very clever, she is underwhelmed by the unpicking and reknitting. Over and out, wornoutmorgan.

Come on over... come on, that's it... a little closer... she's got a lovely joke she wants to tell you.

Can't you come a little closer, dear? It's ever so funny. You'll just die.

More foxes

Mama fox was more in evidence yesterday, and the kits are already warier of the monkey. I wasn't able to get very close. They may be moving out.

Got back from a week away to find that we have five fox kits living under our corn crib. Haven't seen them yet today. They're mostly nocturnal, but still I'm hoping that yesterday's photo forays haven't upset mama fox so much that she's moved them overnight.
