I just got around yesterday to checking out the Fish link on C2it's web site, with that wonderful picture of the fox looking at the fish. That's a well-fed fox! I once saw a fox going across a vacant lot in the middle of Houston, and she was the most scraggly, pitiful-looking creature imaginable...skinny, dirty-blonde matted fur, obviously ekeing out a meager living in competition with the local stray cats. She or he looked almost like a coyote, though I don't think we have coyotes this far east. Of course our American foxes are probably a different branch of the family, but country life evidently agrees with your English foxes!
