Baby fox and stuffed rabbit are the coziest duo imaginable
For an ᴏʀᴘʜᴀɴᴇᴅ animal, life in the wild is more than complicated. Chances of sᴜʀᴠɪᴠᴀʟ are extremely tinny and only a miracle could turn the things around. Fortunately, for this baby fox the help came just in time.
Who says best friends need to be sentient? The Internet is currently swooning over Puggle, a ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ fox living with a foster family in West London. Puggle was ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇᴅ by the National Fox Welfare Society when he was two weeks old, and is hanging out with his foster fam until he’s ready to return to the wild. To give Puggle some company while he’s recovering, his ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇʀs gifted him an adorable stuffed rabbit. And, for the most part, Puggle loves to shower his new friend with affection, cuddles — you know, classic animal friendship stuff. But when Puggle gets a ʀᴜsʜ ᴏꜰ ᴀᴅʀᴇɴᴀʟɪɴᴇ — what the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ calls his “ᴍᴀᴅ ten minutes” — he tends to play a little ʀᴏᴜɢʜ.

In fact, the two even sleep together, so inseparable they became. “So it was just a case of eat and sleep, every four hours.”Being all alone, without a mom to comfort and love, the life was anything but easy for Puggle. Thanks to those kind people, the ᴏʀᴘʜᴀɴ baby fox is now healthy and he soon will be “integrated with other cubs his own age and size, in preparation for his eventual release back to the wild,” according to the . But until that day comes, the cute little one enjoys his days at the facility.
” And He has a love/hate relationship with [his toy],” the ʀᴇsᴄᴜᴇ told. “When he is tired, he loves to snuggle up to the rabbit, but after eating … he likes to shake the rabbit and throw it around.” Puggle will be released back into the wild when he’s ready. But for now, he and his rabbit are just hangin’. Hang in there, rabbit. Think of the cozy times.Have something to add to this story? Share it in the comments.
