Foxes don’t sleep that much. Their main sleeping time is between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m., but you might have trouble sleeping at night before that as Juniper will parade all around the house playing with everything that gets in her way.
But just like cats, foxes like to fall asleep with their humans. So you’re in for some furry treat at night!
Like most animals foxes like attention. Sometimes Juniper will wake her owner during the night just to get her head scratched!
Not many people know that foxes are pretty smelly. Their pee smells a lot like skunk! This means you’ll have to train your fox pets to use potty when indoors, otherwise your house can become uninhabitable.
Juniper and Fig are potty trained, but they still like to mark their territory. It’s in their nature!
You should also be prepared to endure the curiosity of these creatures. Think cats are pretty naughty and like to peek into each and every corner? Well, foxes are twice as curious!
They are also very friendly, so it’s okay if you have other pets roaming around the house.
Not many people know this, but foxes can be really sassy. Jessica Coker admits that Juniper is the sassiest thing on Earth!
