Fox on Trampoline

Post by Baphnedia » Tue Oct 03, 2006 5:31 pm

I saw this in a friend's blog... and I know that foxes aren't wolves - but I also think that I can get away with posting a link to it here....

Thats adorable! Remind me so much of my Ted.

Also reminds me of a video I saw of a bear being shot (with a tranquilizar) froma tree inside someone garden. It fell and landed on a trampoline went flying into the air and landed in a puddle of fur. It was so funny!

And it was alright in the end and got released back into the wild

That is adorable. It looks like it's having a lot of fun. I see foxes around my house since I live in a wooded area.

But that is just too cute. :love:

Hmm... I couldn't decide if it was having fun or having a seizure. Why did it keep rubbing it's head? Is that normal fox behavior?
Zib, go suffer for your art.

Hmmm you have a point there. Maybe it was the static electricity you build up on trampolines, maybe it made its fur feel weird.

My dog sometimes rubs his head on stuff, espeically when he's eat or wet. Although, on the other paw I saw a fox that wa slike that that ran into the road and must have been ill or smashe din the head, but it did fall down a lot more violently.

it did look like it was having fun

My guewss is it liked the feel of the trampoline? The material is pretty textured and would feel great for any animal to scratch on it.
That was cute

I'm inclinded to think that it had an itch on it's face somewhere... but then again, my cat used to rub his head all over the concrete right outside my apartment door (before I had to give him away), and we were pretty sure that it was a scent thing (in the cat's case) rather than an itch or ear mites.

I personally think it's just having fun. XD I mean Bear Cubs will sometimes play on slides. I guess the fox just found it fun to play with.

My cat often rubs his head like that on the concrete outside before falling over onto it. I think it's just normal behaviour - scent rubbing as Baphnedia said or simply cause it's a nice feeling.

But this is really adorable! I often see foxes around my area, often in the forest if we go for early evening walks - there's a family of one mother and two cubs that we often see scavenging there. But we never get to see them so close like that! He looks so happy and as if he's enjoying it - makes me shmile =3

Heh, my Timmy used to do that too. No worries about the head-rubbing, I suppose it is normal. When Timmy was a pup, he loved doing the exact same thing. Now that's he's old, he doesn't bother anymore...
But it's so sweet watching a fox do that! I've never seen anything like it!

Eee that was so cute!! I remember watching it yesterday but I must've closed this tab... I was wondering how I'd found out about the video. :razz:

*hugs the fox* Although Melbourne has the largest population of foxes in Australia, we only see dead ones lying on street curbs. That's not pleasant. :sad:

lol thats really cute <3

not the first fox i've seen on a trampoline though - you know the little square kiddies trampolines? someone sent a picture of a fox sleeping on their's to newsround on CBBC haha ^^ it was adorable x3

i think the whole head-rubbing thing might just be normal.
i know foxes arent cats, but my cat has a habit of rolling around and rubbing her head on things. but then she is a little crazy... maybe the fox is too xD

*SQUEE!* That was so adorable! I had two foxes back in the country (we probably needed a license but oh well) and they used to rub they're heads all over the place, especially when they were kits. I think they just like the feel, or maybe thats their way of scratching their faces. O.o
