I agree Juska about the fox getting out.
the worse place to keep a fox in a city neighborhood, even worse an apartment.
I have to wonder when people get a fox that lives in a city neighborhood, what the hell are they thinking.
it is apparent they lack the understanding of keeping a fox. however a neighbor hood could be OK, as long as the houses are not so close to each other.
I just wish some of these people that get foxes would do more research on them, and here's another good thought, if they would read the fox forum here, they should get good info from fox owners. who knows, some might think, "well, mine won't stink or ever get loose"
to be honest, mine really don't stink much, as long as I clean the litter boxes often. Of course they probably do, and I am use to it.
but, when someone comes here for delivery stuff or whatever, no one knows I have foxes. they can walk past the enclosure and never say anything. however, one time it did stink, my friend told me it did, that was because I didn't change the liter boxes yet.
I was off the shelves. (however, I need to replace some of them with a material that is easier to clean) ideas welcome..
when I clean the litter pans out, I wash them out with the hose (however, I have a spigot in the enclosure that makes it easier), then spray vinegar and odor destroyer on the bottom and sides, let it dry, then line them with newspaper first, then the litter. I keep straw on the bottom of the enclosure. it is replaced as needed. I also keep a bale or two, which they love laying on it. they seem to prefer hay, guess it is softer.
