    I love foxes. Living in central London I am supposed to be seeing them every other day but so far I have yet to see one! There is a one eyed cat on the road opposite mine -he survived an attack by one hence the eye, but I have never seen one.

    Hi Susie, it was the first time I have seen one in my garden, otherwise I always spotted a pair playing playfully nearby the foot path. There is dense vegetation and ample of space for them to wander. The only concerns I have is that our dog was seriously infected by a disease called Fox Mange. We let our dog Spike out in the garden everyday.

    Dogs do like to roll around in the droppings of foxes... I hope that Spike remains contamination free.

    What a handsome fellow or lady?
    There a pair of grey foxes that patrol my neighborhood in the wee hours of the morning on garbage days.
