…and now a Fox too!

Just when you thought it was safe to go outside…

I live in a fair sized city; Guelph, Ontario.  My house backs on to a small forest so we’ve had a lot of small critters come to visit over the years.  This year has been exceptional though.  We get the usual creatures; rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, cats, several dozen varieties of birds, and a possum (see photo on Flickr).  The bar has been raised yesterday, we now have a fox (sorry no picture, my son has video that I’ll try to get).  I’m no expert on foxes but it’s behavior seemed a little weird.  It was almost cat-like, walking all around the backyard, rolling in the grass, and generally having a good time.

Is it marking territory?  Just visiting?  Who knows…
