More berm trouble!

More berm trouble!

I was watching intently outside since I haven't laid a paw out there in days, when I saw our crazy neighbour cat, Canon. He must have heard of the excitement over here as he has never sauntered over to our property before.



"Hey, Canon!!!!! Git your furry butt home!!! Stop looking at my tree! That is MY bird nest in there!

The PM gets the wee ones to bang on the window, hoping to scare Canon a bit so he'll run home. He is on the other end of the berm from the fox but we don't want to take any chances.



"Yes Canon, we are talking to you! Get goin' ! Are we going to have to call your Mom to come get you?'"



"HOLY #$@%*# !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

The PM had taken this picture just as the fox ran around the corner of the berm. She was hoping to get an action shot of Canon running home, but not THIS type of action!

At this point, the PM swears, drops the camera (I am surprised it didn't break) and runs out of the house in her bare feet screaming like a banshee. Canon runs, the fox chases him but runs the other way when the PM gets there. She then chases the fox around the berm and into the field.

This is getting pretty crazy. We now think that the fox who had her babies in the field last year is back and has decided that the berm is a safer place to have her kits. So that is better than having two foxes to deal with but we can't figure out why she thought the front of our house would be safer? She has probably had her babies and that is why she is being super vigilant about chasing the other animals away. Last year she left the area and took the kits with her into the woods when they got bigger so we will have to wait it out. When we are sure they are gone we will fill up the holes and she'll have to find a new spot next time.

The fox is just being a good mommy to her kits, but it seems to be a very scary situation for the unwary kitty!
