A Tribute To Felicia The Fox.... We Loved Her Well

Now that we know Felicia is gone, I think it's time for a tribute to her. I know it sounds completely cuckoo but I really did love her. I loved seeing her when I had coffee on the patio in the mornings. We loved watching her babies every year. Our friends loved it too. I'm guessing she was here for something like 8 to 10 years before her disappearance. I'm still sad but I'm grateful that I don't know what happened to her. I don't think I could bear that.



I'm also grateful that she brought her pups to my backyard last summer and introduced them to us, in her feral sort of way. It has to be the reason her baby girl is still here on our property. So, I'll get started on Felicia's little tribute.













And, the very last time I saw her. Vaya con dios Felicia.

Oh - And the Oleanders you see behind Felicia were killed this last winter during our last cold snap, which was a real devil. They are now completely gone, so we'll be spending even more money this year, buying new shrubs to replace the 8 bushes we lost during the bitter cold weather....

It speaks volumes when a wild animal chooses to make it's home near us humans. Felicia Fox gave you her greatest gift and you hers. Not many offer a safe haven for wild life and it must have felt safe enough to raise a family! Pats on your back!
