Good Little Gremlin

Today, as I was taking Gizmo out of his play yard to give him his walk, the latch on the gate to his pen slid down and caught my necklace in it, basically attaching my neck to the door. I hadn't even gotten a hold of Gizmo yet when this happened, so he darted out the door in between my legs.

Crap, I thought, That's me chasing him around the yard for the next hour and a half.

But he didn't go anywhere. He sat down about three feet away, and watched quietly as I freed myself. Once I got loose, I sat down and patted my thigh, and the little guy pounced into my lap and rolled over for a belly rub. I praised him pretty lavishly, and when I took him inside he got a fresh hard-boiled egg. Never in a million years did I think he'd just sit there quietly when he could be running laps along the fence.

  1. I wish I could express to you how much Gizmo is the ideal pet fox! I hope that my little kit this spring will grow up to be just of great a pet as Gizmo is!
