Fox and Cat Daze of Summer...

In between the phase two posting of the Redneck Gourmet dutch-oven cook-off, we finally got some photos of Francis and the kits. Since you have been waiting patiently, I am interrupting the 'flow' to post these shots. Without further ado...

This is who Excy saw when he walked out to feed the horses this morning..sorry the shot is blurry. He was in a hurry to grab his phone. When he turned the corner of the tack room, he saw four kits wrestling in the ivy...


When they ran underneath the floor, he dangled a string from a hay bale over the edge and went 'fishing' and this is who he lured...




Francis interrupted her lounging in the cool recedes of the ivy this afternoon to eat her favorite treat of vanilla wafers...oops, we're out as of tomorrow...time to run to the store!




Meanwhile inside, Corey's cat Dixie, loves the screened porch so much she is out there all hours, despite looking like she's about to fall out from the heat!


Lenny lounging on the porch...though he prefers the cool bedroom.



Ya'll keep cool!!

What great shots. I've never once seen a fox even remotely close to my house. Actually, not sure I have ever seen one in the wild either. Very cool.

Yes, the photos of the foxes are very cool. I think Excy was very cleaver to lure the fox out of hiding with the string. I guess he outfoxed a fox.

Foxes!!! Wow. They are so much like cats when you have to lure them out with 'string'

That is really neat. I think my cat might run away (she is totally a scardy cat!)

Aw... What a gift and a joy to have those kits there to watch. I love living the country life for just those moments, though I've never seen any foxes around these parts. Thanks for sharing those photos.

Lucky you!!! All I ever see are skunks, possums and stray cats.

How very lucky you are to have resident foxes--the neatest animal in my book. It was so sweet how they fall for the old string trick also.
All I have are onion and flower eating rabbits.
This heat is awful but we are not alone.
Love your full page comments. Sure makes it easy.

Be careful the kitties don't get eaten by the "wild" things

Marvelous photos, first kits I've seen up close! Beautiful coloring of the Mom!
