Gray Fox Kits have appeared on the Mendonoma Coast, and are they ever cute!

Cathleen Crosby has a family of Gray Foxes near her home in Gualala. What fun she will have in the days to come, watching three Fox Kits growing up. They are very playful with each other and the Fox parents are quite devoted to their welfare.

It will be wonderful to see more photos of these cute kits in the days to come. Here is a favorite photo of a Gray Fox mother, perhaps exhausted from nursing. She's relaxing in a birdbath. This photo was taken by Lynda Opperman.

Thanks to Cathleen and Lynda for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
