- Scroll right and let’s talk. 🌿 I have gotten seven messages this week about people no longer wanting to care for the fox they purchased this past spring. That’s just this week. Fall is typically the time of year when the foxes that were born in the spring begin to mature and start to develop hormones. Their entire being is telling them it’s time to leave the den and find their own territory. This generally results in very upset and stand-offish animals that will bite or just want to be left alone. During this time they stop acting like puppies and begin acting like foxes. 🌿 Unfortunately, rehoming a Fox is not as simple as “can you take it?”. Because they are exotic animals permits are required, paperwork showing where you revived them is required, and there are strict enclosure requirements. Because of these stipulations we aren’t always able to help, especially if the animal was illegally purchased, abandoned, or in another country all together. 🌿 So just a reminder to anyone reading this: Foxes are wonderful animals and can be great companions, but they aren’t for everyone. They shouldn’t be conventional pets, because they are not like owning a cat or dog. They are still inherently wild with instincts and wild tendencies. 🌿 Here are a list of reasons you may not want a Fox: •Biting •Food aggression •Permits •Enclosure expenses •Exotic vet costs •Raw diet costs •Destructive behavior •Nocturnal behavior •Highly unlikely to potty train •Skunk like odor •Typically skittish or aloof For more information on foxes and their behavior click here 👉🏼 #livingwithjuni

- It’s not very often that Fig isn’t smiling, but we’re not quite sure about this thing yet. 🌿 When we adopted Fig we were told he would need either a prosthetic or for his leg to be amputated. This is because since his is missing his foot his wrist couldn’t support his weight his entire life and would ultimately lead to more problems later. 🌿 Since then we have been on a long journey to get him his prosthetic. Somewhere along that journey we learned from our vet that he actually has remaining parts of his foot and wouldn’t need it for full time use, but that it would help on walks and when he was outdoors. 🌿 To begin the process of getting his prosthetic he first had to be casted. This is what would be used to determine the size of the prosthetic. We did this during his neuter last year to make sure that we wouldn’t need to sedate him more than once. Unfortunately that casting did not turn out as well as we had hoped which set us back a few months. Doctor Derrick with @bionicpets , offered to come down himself to recast Fig’s foot. This however would mean that Fig would have to go under anesthesia once again, which I wasn’t keen on. Doctor Derrick was nice enough to work around this for us and sent this sleeve so that we are able to make sure it fits perfectly before proceeding to make the full prosthetic. Now we send it back and wait! 🌿 #FigTheFoxx

- *please excuse my profanity, it hurt* *please also excuse the weird scream that came out of me* Living with foxes is an amazing experience that I wouldn’t trade for the world, but it’s not always as cute as pictures and videos portray. • Foxes, especially red foxes, are pretty moody animals. Both in the wild and in captivity. They are very outspoken about the things they do and don’t like. When they communicate with each other they use a lot of different vocalizations as well as nips and bites. • Juniper has always been prone to biting. The first day we brought her home she drew blood. (Savage). We’ve worked on this over the years and while it’s a rare occurrence for her to bite to the point that she injures me, it obviously still happens. • This is one of the main reasons I do not recommend foxes as pets. Along with a few other unsavory traits, like their skunky smell, many people who choose to live with foxes when they’re cute cuddly babies cannot handle this type of behavior as they mature. • Instagram is a great place to share cute photos and videos, but remember animals are always true to their nature and don’t care about your aesthetic. #livingwithjuni

- Let’s talk about sugar gliders! 🐭 Sugar gliders are a nocturnal marsupial indigenous to parts of Australia and Indonesia. While they are protected in Australia due to declining numbers, Indonesian sugar gliders are sometimes exported to be pets in other parts of the world. Sugar gliders are regularly sold as pets in the United States. Most however are not from the wild, they have been bred here as pets for many years through many generations. Unfortunately, because they breed quickly and easily they are often one of the most commonly mistreated exotic animal. They are often found in pet stores or expos being sold in cages that can be dangerous for them and with diets that aren’t appropriate. I was approached yesterday by someone who had recently bought a sugar glider and wondered why it had passed away after they did everything the person they bought it from had told them to do. • Sugar gliders have an intricate diet consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables, and various proteins. Petunia and Peach also get vitamin supplements, to keep them at their healthiest. • Sugar gliders are also very social animals and do not do well living alone. I have found this to be something most pet stores and other irresponsible “sellers” leave out when speaking to people about buying a sugar glider. • Since sugar gliders are very social animals they bond closely to the people who they interact with most. Peach and Petunia spend most of their day sleeping tucked into pockets and folds of my clothes. Cuddling with one another. • While we can’t change the world overnight we can educate each other about the proper care of animals and in doing so make a difference for one little creature at a time. #PeachyandPetunia
