Hello, my mane is Nicole, I'm 24 years old (freshly out of college), and I currently live in Florida, but I might be looking for somewhere else to live. Since I will be getting a fox soon after I settle down somewhere, I decided to come to the forums as I see many fox owners on here who will defiantly be able to help me with all the info i might need.
I have done extensive research, and I'm hoping to get either a red, gray or fennec in the near future.

I'm glad to be here, and I hope to get to know all of you guys! :)

Hi, and welcome, Nicole! That's so exciting that you're done with college--it was such a relief when I finished. Florida is actually a good place for owning exotics, so you're in a great spot already.

Are you planning on buying your own place? Or renting? Landlords more often than not do not allow pet foxies (and for good reason). I was able to rent a house though, but I found a nice landlord and, with a little extra money, he let me keep my fox in the garage. It was not an ideal setup, but it worked for me at the time--though I hate recommending it to people. In an enclosed space like that it's almost impossible to keep the smell down, and it makes tons of unneeded/unwanted work. Right before I moved I just dumped a whole container of bleach out on the floor and bleached the whole garage.

Which fox are you leaning toward most? They all have their pros and cons.

Anyway, welcome. :)

Thanks ash! And I will most likely be staying in florida- I heard it was easy to get a permit here. And the fact it's pretty good weather down here.

I will most likely be buying a house, I don't want to deal with a landlord if I rent. I found a nice house with a lot of land and I plan to build a big outdoor enclosure for my fox.
And I'm kind of leaning towards the gray, but I'm not exactly sure yet, though.
