Juniper isn’t your average fox. Ever since her birth, she’s lived as a pet in her mom’s house. If you think she looks familiar, you might have seen her from this popular YouTube video or her Instagram fan page. In the video, you can see Juniper take part in her everyday antics as she jumps on the bed in search of a “mouse” underneath the snow-white sheets. There’s a lot to be said about how adorable Juniper is, but her mom advises anyone who wants to adopt a pet fox to think twice before making that decision. They are very different than dogs and cats, and often require very specific living conditions.
On her Instagram account, she explains, “Foxes are not like owning a dog or cat. Foxes smell. Bad. Their urine and feces smell like skunk mixed with ammonia. There is no way to “de-scent” a fox. You cannot keep a fox indoors 24/7. They need an enclosure no less than 10′x10′ for ONE fox (Seriously). Foxes are destructive, they will destroy things in your house. Foxes must be fed some raw meats and bone content in their diet. They also need taurine, or they can go blind, suffer from seizures, and even die.
If you get a fox, you need to find a vet willing to treat one. Most vets will not treat foxes. Foxes are ILLEGAL in many areas. Just because they are legal in your state, does not mean the same is true for your city.”
Recently, Juniper became very close friends with Moose, an Australian Shepherd mix. They’ve known each other since the first day Juniper came home, but their bond has grown stronger since then.
