19 Domesticated Foxes That Will Make You Want One ASAP

When we think of domesticated animals, cats, dogs, birds, and even hamsters come to mind.

But they’re not the only fluffy buds you can keep at home…

Foxes are traditionally to be wild animals that hunt and gather for their survival, but domesticated foxes do exist. And they’re magical.

While incredibly rare, there are a handful of states that do allow people to keep domesticated wildlife such as foxes. Generally, special permits are required and bringing one into your home should not be taken lightly as they bring with them a whole different set of responsibilities. Though keeping one isn’t allowed where I live, after seeing the antics these foxes get into, I can’t help but want one myself.

1. When it comes to annoying your dog, foxes are the new cat.

2. That reaction to hearing her own name, though…

3. Like any other household animal, they’re very motivated by treats.

The Unusual Love Between This Lion And His White Tiger Friend Is Amazing

Lions, tigers, and…best friends, oh my!

Cameron the lion and Zabu the white tiger first met at a roadside zoo in New England in the early 2000s. Thankfully, the pair was rescued in 2004 by Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida. Now, they spend their days being BFFs at the rescue (to the delight of both staff and visitors).

The rescue saw how the two cats had bonded and knew they had to be kept together.

To make sure both the cats and the caretakers were safe, the rescue spayed Zabu and neutered Cameron.

This caused Cameron to lose his mane…but given the hot Florida weather, he probably didn’t mind.

It’s important to remember that both of them are big cats…

But it’s so fun to see them play with their favorite toys, sunbathe, groom each other, and be silly. Zabu the tiger even acts kittenish, according to Big Cat Rescue.

“While Cameron tries to sleep most of the day away (as lions do in the wild), Zabu is extremely energetic and is always pestering him to play.”

It’s easy to see why these unlikely friends love each other.

Heart = melted.

Cats And Dogs Can Be Best Friends…And Here’s The Adorable Proof

The tale is as old as time: dogs and cats just don’t get along. While that may be the “rule,” this adorable duo is definitely the exception to it.

She Stepped Into A Cage With A Leopard — What Happened Next Is Amazing

Interacting with big cats is something that very few people get to do.

The lucky staff at Cheetah Experience, though, get to do it on a daily basis. Cheetah Experience is a non-profit organization and a big cat center that breeds cheetahs to be released into the wild, educates the public on big cats, and raises awareness for habitat loss and species conservation.

Not only that, but they’re a great place to have completely unique (and amazing) experiences.

Usually, when a big cat is running after you, it’s not for this awesome reason.

If only everyone could do this.

If you’d like to learn more about big cat conservation, visit the non-profit’s Facebook page. If you like what they’re doing and would like to help, consider making a donation to their cause!

And if you just want to sit there in jealous silence…we’d understand.

When This Cat Hears Distress Calls, She Does The Funniest Thing

When it comes to finding the perfect birthday card for a friend, the kitschier, the better. Unless you’re this cat, that is, in which case she would prefer you keep it simple and sound-free.

When her human leaves a card featuring some talented felines meowing the familiar birthday song open on the floor, this real-life cat is having none of it. Either she thinks the poor things are stuck inside a paper prison without an escape, or she’s just jealous of their synchronized singing skills. Whichever reason, her reaction is hilarious.

“Alright, that’s enough of that.”

I think she just wants to work on a harmony with them…or, y’know, tear the card to shreds.

While On A Hike In The Woods, They Found And Rescued Four Abandoned Kittens

It’s not uncommon to come across animals while hiking in the woods, but these two weren’t expecting to stumble upon a litter of kittens.

The Houston couple was going for their usual walk through the woods in Spring Creek Park when their normal hike turned into quite the adventure. That’s because they came across four abandoned kittens roaming around in the middle of the forest.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); });

Coming to the conclusion that the adorable kitties were not feral, they decided to round them up…which turned out to be easy, since they followed them right to the parking lot!

It was clear these babies weren’t feral by the way they immediately ran up to their new human friends.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

Finally, a comfy place to take a nap!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

Once they were home, the babies were treated to fresh food and water.

Just look how happy they were to be inside.

The rescuers are happy to report that all of the cats now have permanent homes!
