Baby Felicia The Fox Needs A Name.... Please Vote!

Now that we know for sure that Felicia is gone, it seems Baby Felicia is here to stay, in her place. I see her out in the backyard from time to time, so she survived one of our coldest winters to date. Our plants, shrubs and trees didn't survive, but the little fox surely did (note that there are no longer 8 feet tall Oleanders). Anyway, we know it isn't Felicia because she is so scared of us. I can't seem to get a decent picture of her unless she's asleep on the roof, which is still quite the challenge). She runs whenever she sees me (even though foxes are practically legally blind), which means she must sense my presence in some other animalistic way.

So, I believe it's time to name this little girl. I'm not sure if she's had any pups yet but I did see her scarfing a little squirrel a few days ago, before jumping up and over the concrete block fence, that leads to the garden. If she has indeed had pups, she's still hiding them out in one of her dens around our property, since they are blind for the first 10 days of life. Perhaps I'll get to see them very soon. I wish she trusted us more, but I'm sure that time will make her more comfortable with us. Hopefully.

Approximately one month ago I took a short video of the baby girl up on the roof.

Then, a few days ago I tried to get a shot of her but had the flash on for the first one, which didn't work because it was dusk at the time. By the time I was able to catch a shot, she was too far away and already on the fence, on her way to the garden den I suppose.

I thought I could post a voting widget but apparently that's too far beyond my mental capacity for me to handle, so I'm just going to throw out some names I've come up with. Please leave a comment on which name you like best or you can even offer an additional suggestion for a name. Okay? Let's. Do. This.

So, here are the names I've come up with:

Roxy Foxy

Fertita The Fox

Francesca The Fox

Fergie The Fox

Fanny The Fox

Fifi The Fox

So, let me know what you think of the names......

When I read your previous post, I thought they were all gone. I'm glad to see you still have a fox friend, or soon to be.

Let's see now. Hmm. Name. I always think of a fufu french poodle when I hear FiFi. Francesca would be shortened to Fran or Frannie at my house. I really like Fergie, but Roxy is nice. Okay..my vote is Fergie. Good luck.

She is adorable! I like Francesca too, it can be formal or cute when shortened!

I like Francesca. I'm glad you have Felicia's daughter in your yard.

Before I even read this, I had FiFi in my mind....

Fiona. I've always wanted to name something Fiona:)

I want to be different...I vote for Bella Dona. Just for you Primadona. Or if I have to...Roxy Foxy
Game Cams works great for catching the elusive creature and they are made for the outdoors and simple to use.
