a long period of time, unless birthing.
You might try .. giving the fox an alternative food supply... place it away

Ah, Kris, so you've met our own Mr.Hyde and Mr.Hyde better know to us as
Shelly, a.k.a. Sheldon, a.k.a. brooklyn1, a.k.a. a sociopath.

feature or characteristic of you that he can. It seems to make him feel

about trees but you have to remember that he really doesn't seem to be
able to control himself, so just try to ignore him as most of us do.
