On the way home from an on ice session a month or so ago, I noticed something on the highway a ways up. I asked Colton, are those cats? As we got closer they looked towards us and then ran into the ditch. While, the cats turned out to be a family of little fox. There were about 5 of them, one of which immediately ran into the den.
Colton and I spent some time on the side of the road watching them play and groom each other. Unfortunately we also noticed a dead one in the ditch not far from the den opening. We didn’t get close enough to see if it could have been Mom, but I think it was to small to be her. And the way they were playing on the highway, I’m not surprised that one of the them may have been hit.
After a while they got bored of us and went back into the den and I was distracted by the lady slippers in the ditch.
