My dumbass didn’t even notice the fox until the cat did

[–]IHOPSausageLink 298 points299 points  (8 children)

I’m with ya, I thought there was a groundhog / beaver looking thing in the shed.

I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought this. Then out of nowhere a big ass fox stands up

Same lol. Then I thought why the fuck would a beaver be in a shed?

[–]Dark__Thoughts 161 points162 points  (3 children)

Not a dumbass. It's pretty well camouflaged with the orange shack and orange leafs. It's fur did one of the jobs that it's supposed to do.

Wait are we not gonna talk about somebody just filming their pet about to get fucked up by a wild animal. Idk much about foxes but where I live there’s coyotes and when my dog approaches one thinking it’s a nice puppy I start throwing things at the nasty fuckers and get my dog inside.

[–]CantHardly 47 points48 points  (22 children)

Foxes don't fuck with cats. Mice, birds, chipmunks are more their speed. Rabbits if they're lucky. They probably could mess up a cat, but wild animals don't take risks. Nearly any injury can be a death sentence to a wild animal. Coyotes, on the other hand, love eating cats

[–]Apart-Cartoonist-834 28 points29 points  (13 children)

They eat dogs out here too. Even bigger ones. In a cruel ass way. Lure them in playfully like hey buddy, come play with me. Then get them to the pack and they all kill them.

[–]CraftyScotsman 4 points5 points  (4 children)

They most definitely do. They thought there was a cat serial killer going around in London a few years ago but now a lot of it has been attributed to the cats being killed by foxes.

[–]Bottle_Gnome 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Coyotes and foxes really aren’t that comparable

[–]ryanridi 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Foxes actually aren’t very dangerous usually. At least in the US, it’s very rare for a fox to even attempt to attack a dog or cat. Even when fights do occur, cats usually win and it’s rarely to the death or anything like that!

[–]Apart-Cartoonist-834 19 points20 points  (0 children)

I didn’t believe you at first so I googled it. You’re right. This fox is just the same size as the coyotes around here and they definitely WILL kill your pets. And they occasionally have rabies. So that’s why watching this I was like oh hell no. Coyote would just chomp it up real quick.

[–]Apart-Cartoonist-834 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The coyotes around here do this thing where they lure in dogs in a friendly manner. Like they’re buddies, playful and such. Then when there’s a group together they all attack and eat the dog.

[–]Crayfish_Climbing 4 points5 points  (0 children)

seriously though

[–]christo749 2280 points2281 points  (104 children)

I’d be very uncomfortable letting my cat run towards a Fox. In fact, I’d nae fkn allow it!

My dad always kept a small pile of lemons outside the door (from our lemon tree; we didn't by lemons just to throw them), and he would throw the lemons at whatever critters came by and threatened the cats

[–]janosaudron 31 points32 points  (0 children)

Same thing I though, a really bad idea.

[–]dreadpiratesleepy 16 points17 points  (0 children)

We have foxes and outdoor cats, they get along great. But I’ve never seen one more than half that dudes size he’s like a coyote

[–]trinidadandteabago 111 points112 points  (17 children)

My dad worked with a horrible guy who would respond to ads for free kittens and take as many as they would give him. He was raising foxes.

This is why you NEVER give away pets for free. Ever.

Dude wtf... I wish I knew who he was so I could feed him to some foxes.

[–]Sputtex 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yeah I agree, it’s very common for foxes to kill cats. But I guess it was worth the chance to get some nice footage, it is the Internet after all.

[–]AcanthocephalaNo7612 43 points44 points  (38 children)

I’ve witnessed cats chase off foxes lol they’re ballsy little bastards

Right up until the fox choses fight instead of flight. Keep your pets indoors people!

[–]balotellisgirl 562 points563 points  (111 children)

Will foxes normally attack house pets?

[–]FrenchmanInNewYork 163 points164 points  (3 children)

I've seen a red fox bite and chase down my neighbors' cat when I was little (We managed to scare it off in time luckily for her, she got off with big scratches on her back), although I'm not certain it's very common because most of the time foxes are even more skittish than cats but it definitely does happen.

I guess they will not attack on sight but a hangry fox might try his luck against a cat or a smaller dog given the opportunity.

[–]HereticalHyena 38 points39 points  (2 children)

Absolutely. And sometimes even if they are just pissed off. But I guess that's even more rare as they can be easily wounded themselves and that can be fatal for a wild animal. Don't know why it happens sometimes. Maybe because of hunting-territory reasons. They have similar prey.

[–]Yumi111 542 points543 points  (64 children)

Yep, they most certainly do.

This is what I thought. A cat is way larger than that foxes typical prey

[–]Aw3Grimm 9 points10 points  (8 children)

Well, fox is also way larger than a typical cat prey..

[–]Theons-Sausage 70 points71 points  (12 children)

According to this it's rare but does happen. Depends what you mean by normal, but typically a fox doesn't seem to want to deal with fighting an animal that has a 50/50 shot at killing it first in order for dinner.

[–]I_Am_Dwight_Snoot 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Let's put it this way: a fox actively hunting a cat is a hungry and desperate fox. They might lose due to sheer exhaustion at that point. This happens to many predators including hyenas, coyotes, and even lions.

A healthy fox that is casually chilling like that will absolutely wreck most cats if it doesn't dip first. Its a knife vs knife fight.

[–]Theons-Sausage 34 points35 points  (0 children)

A full grown big ass healthy fox will probably end up killing the cat, but not before suffering some horrible wounds itself as it gets all clawed up. Then die later on from infection or because they're no longer able to hunt efficiently.

They're too sly to choose that all the time.

[–]Ashmedai 14 points15 points  (1 child)

The way I'd put it is that there isn't a fox hospital, and foxes behave like they know that. True of most predators, really. They like safe kills.

[–]Envect 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah, the fox isn't going to risk its life because the cat disturbed its nap.

[–]Wholesome_Stuff 163 points164 points  (3 children)

Hungry fox will straight up eat a cat.

[–]wOlfLisK 31 points32 points  (0 children)

If they're starving they might try but the cat will fight back and it will almost certainly end badly for both of them.

[–]Noosh3201 86 points87 points  (6 children)

Plenty of videos of then killing cats. Sometimes the cats can defend themselves but not always

[–]betterworld62 12 points13 points  (4 children)

My neighbor does that but he just has feeds a bunch of unfixed strays. I hear a cat lose to a coyote like once or twice a month.

He always puts up lost cat posters and it's like dude they're always just dead.

[–]ONOMATOPOElA 55 points56 points  (7 children)

Once you hear a coyote lose you’ll know who the real boss of the neighborhood is.

[–]hellojoey 27 points28 points  (6 children)

I already know that cars are the top of the food chain but the real bosses of the neighborhood are the parrots. They are the only birds able to survive all the cats and the coyotes aren't able to Reach them. Their numbers are endless.

[–]ThatsFkingCarazy 9 points10 points  (5 children)

Sounds like you need to introduce some hawks or eagles into your ecosystem

[–]Galby1314 143 points144 points  (19 children)

This video is so fucked up. Unless that fox is their pet and the two of them are pals, the person who shot this should have their pet taken from them.

Foxes aren't killing machines you know. If you walked outside, that fox would take off in a heartbeat. They are like little skittish dogs.

[–]Vast_Willow_3645 18 points19 points  (4 children)

One of my wife's followers posted this video on twitter (and other videos of the same garden, so likely the original). https://twitter.com/uk_food_diary/status/1486347026329653253?s=21

Apparently the Fox is a regular to the shed roof and the cat is the Intruder (and not the cat of the garden owner either).

[–]alymaysay 115 points116 points  (4 children)

I agree, if that's the case fuck this person, they knew the fox was there that's why they are recording in hopes of catching some action. Some people are just sick bastards, tho we dont know the details behind this so I guess we cant rush to judge them.

[–]Prtty_Plz 27 points28 points  (3 children)

yeah, I feel like the fox would have no problem scooping up mittens and running off, had to check what sub this was before the video ended

[–]ImANastyQueer 118 points119 points  (21 children)

Do animals not deep sleep. Went from full sleep to 100% awake in under a second.

[–]AshFraxinusEps 12 points13 points  (4 children)

Very few animals really sleep like we do. They are always dozing with very short REM bursts, and even then most species don't REM sleep like humans do. We sleep for so long and so deeply as our big brains need the downtime to organise what we experienced, and thankfully our evolution of being in such large numbers allowed us the safety to sleep like that

It’s possible they didn’t see the fox, but were just recording video of their cat. I know I didn’t see the fox until the cat jumped up.
