Mange is Back
Today while eating my breakfast I noticed what I thought was another cat. It turned out to my surprise to be a fox who hasn't been around since May time (link). By the time I had put my bowl down, got up, attached my lens to the camera he was gone. He is looking very well just a few signs of mange. His eyes still look a bit odd but it was definitely him. He had the distinct crooked tail. Hopefully he appears on the camera which lately has only been capturing the cat Barney. Sorry for the lack of images here. Better luck next time I hope.
