Little foxes


After an Autumn full of deer, I have not found my Winter to be nearly as rich in wildlife sightings. And so it was with especial joy that, in walking down a long, snowy alley in my neighborhood, I spotted two scrappy little wild creatures.

"Foxes!" I glee'd softly to myself in delight. Then I began hurriedly preparing my camera. 

These small animals were still pretty far away, clearly cautious, and on the move. But I hoped to get some kind of picture if I could. I aimed the camera as fast as I was able, and I cranked the zoom...



Not foxes, cats.

Well, I have no complaint.

The two of them dashed into the backyards before I could get anywhere near them. But I hooked around to the front of those houses and found one of the cats already settling in for a snooze on a front stoop.

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
