George the ginger cat returned home after a stroll one day to discover an unexpected visitor in his bed.
“When I came downstairs and went through the kitchen into the restroom, I did a double-take because I could see a set of gigantic ears in the kitchen window,” said George’s owner, Meloney Blayze, 47.
“I thought to myself, ‘well, those aren’t the cat’s ears,’ and switched on the light to see what was on the cat’s bed-and there was a red fox.”
Meloney awoke around 4 a.m. to let George out into the garden, and the wild animal seemed to have crept in after she went back to sleep.
When she returned in the morning, the wild fox had made itself at home on Georges’ bed.
Despite the cats’ efforts to frighten the fox away by spitting at it, the fox hesitated to go until Meloney scooped up the bed and tipped it out the window.
“He was extremely quiet. He didn’t want to go,” he began, “acting like a family member who had been there for years and was perplexed as to what all the commotion was about.”
I gazed at him, and he stared back. Meloney Blayze, the cat’s owner, says, “He was not afraid of me at all.”
