It seems like something straight out of a Disney fairy tale; a girl and a fox become best friends and live happily ever after… or at least in my animal-lover fantasy. Juniper has become an internet sensation after a video went viral featuring the fox jumping on a bed. The owner of the animal has been documenting on Instagram what it’s like to live with a pet fox.
Many have suggested that Juniper is similar to an orange dog. However, the owner is quick to dismiss this simplistic claim, stating that “foxes smell. Bad. Their urine and feces smell like skunk mixed with ammonia. There is no way to ‘de-scent’ a fox. You cannot keep a fox indoors 24/7…Foxes are destructive, they will destroy things in your house. Foxes must be fed some raw meats and bone content in their diet.” Yikes. On that note, here how cute the fluffly creature is. Enjoy!
