I KNOW a couple of people who raised fox kits and they were pretty good house pets.
Almost a cross between a dog and a cat but without the annoying, horrible cat features(like , you know, being a cat)
Very affectionate and neat.

Don't be hating my cats...

We have fox around us since my whole block backs up to state land. My neighbor 10 houses down, his property runs deeper than most. He has seen fox kittens playing in his yard, rolling around like kittens. I see momma fox and momma raccoons with their little ones.

Had 1 neighbor who raised 5 raccoon babies by hand, something happened to the mother. Man do they have sharp claws, really not fit for inside life although they were pretty tame. She gave them up to a wildlife preserve.

My uncles used to raise red fox to train hunting dogs. What the dogs did to the fox and raccoons they’d catch during training was not pretty. They also got me started in fur trapping when I was 12 back in the mid 70’s.

That looks like a coyote pup.

You have posted quite a bit of those pics. Are they your kin? Would love to hear about them if they are. I love doing the family history and I have pics going back several generations on both family sides. More on my dad's than on my mom's side though.

As for the animal I would say quite possibly a coyote pup but could be a fox.

How nice would it be to return to NORMAL! Even Dems with at least two brain cells owned guns back then.


It does look like a fox with a happy and prepared family.

To me it looks more like a birdcage. Back in those times they hung lanterns for porch lights and the bugs would get bad so they would put birds in bird cages to catch them. Kind of like the bug zappers of today but living back then.

It looks like shelves to me.
If you zoom in there appear to be some items sitting on them.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domesticated_red_fox

Russians domesticating foxes through selective breeding.

"Foxes in Class I are friendly toward experimenters, wagging their tails and whining. In the sixth generation bred for tameness we had to add an even higher-scoring category. Members of Class IE, the "domesticated elite", are eager to establish human contact, whimpering to attract attention and sniffing and licking experimenters like dogs. They start displaying this kind of behavior before they are one month old. By the tenth generation, 18 percent of fox pups were elite; by the 20th, the figure had reached 35 percent. Today elite foxes make up 70 to 80 percent of our experimentally selected population."

I bet they would make great pets. probly a future fad

There's an ongoing study in Russia dealing with the effects of selectively breeding foxes. They found that the least aggressive foxes had lower levels of Adrenalin in their blood. They found that the same group of genes that controlled Adrenalin levels also controlled certain morphological traits like fur colors and tail height. By breeding the least aggressive animals over multiple generations, they created an animal that looked and acted like a piebald domestic dog.
The theory is that modern dogs were created when hunter gatherers found wolf liters, ate the most aggressive, and bred the least aggressive. Wolves were the only canines that were bold enough to approach humans, whereas the smaller ones were mainly scavengers
