The woman lives in a wooded area in Illinois, so she commonly sees lots of animals, and these cubs were apparently on a mission to explore the house and peered inside the window, looking for a tasty treat. At first, just one baby fox visited the house and licked the sliding glass door.
Redditor Vechrotex, whose grandma was the host of the cute family, shared the photo and it immediately went viral. Since the first post, user Vechrotex regularly uploaded new updates on the baby fox, whose siblings started showing up on their doorstep too.
“Here in Illinois we get red foxes in forested areas, we see them a lot and it’s not that big of a deal. One day my grandma saw a baby red fox and took a picture of it. She shared the picture with me and I thought it was just so cute, I decided to post it. I’m glad I was able to make so many people happy! The mom comes by a lot more than the babies. She is always close when her babies are on the porch.”
Vechrotex and Grandma are happy to be able to spread smiles by sharing the lovely fox adventure. Baby red foxes are born blind and open their eyes about two weeks later. Therefore, these ones were probably 3-4 weeks old. Also, the little animals rely on their mother’s milk for the first month, and then turn to solid foods and learn to hunt.
