On March 15, theRSPCAfound an orphaned baby fox in a garden in London, The Dodoreports.The helplessanimal was only two weeks old when they found him, and he desperately needed looking after. After fending for himself for hours or even days, he was severely dehydrated and malnourished.So the RSPCA coordinated with two volunteers fromNFWS(The National Fox Welfare Society), who specialise in the rescue and rehabilitation of young foxes like this cub.
WhenCarolyn andShane welcomed the tiny baby fox into their home, they decided to name him Puggle.Like all orphans like Puggle, the baby fox cub needed a lot of care during his first three weeks in his new home. He needed to be fed with a baby bottle every four hours, go to the toilet, and of course, he needed a lot of sleep.
To make him feel as secure and protected as possible, his foster parents put a little rabbit soft toy in Puggle's bed.But they never thought he'd grow so attached to his new friend...He now even tries to play fight with his little bunny.
"Puggle is at the age now that we really need to get him in with other cubs so he can play and enjoy the company of his own kind...in preparation for his eventual release back to the wild" the association announced on their Facebook page.
