This is a very friendly fox that used to come to my garden a lot and nick my shoes and other items of delight…This is a link to a previous post about him.
But foxes come and go, and the new foxes are a sorry breed:
They have both got the mange. This one is the worst off.
They are also very shy; poor things they really have a rotten life at the moment. By luck (and by Google) I came across The National Fox Welfare Society and discovered that they send out bottles of mange treatment free of charge or for a donation.
The trick is to make sure that the foxes each eat some of the treatment every day; I feed them fruit scones and honey sarnies because my cat don’t like sweet things and so leaves the medicine alone.
I really hope the foxes will make it through the winter.
