Gray Fox Kits - are they the cutest critters on the Mendonoma Coast?

Craig Tooley and Rita Peck had several days this week to enjoy a family of Gray Foxes near their home on The Sea Ranch. Frequent readers of this blog will know that Craig got some great photographs. Below is a photo of a young Fox Kit.
 And here Craig captured the mother Gray Fox nursing several of her young ones.
 And this Fox Kit decided to go for a different approach - nursing in comfort on its back!
Thanks to Craig for allowing me to share his photos here. To see more of Craig's Coast photographs, here's the link to his web site:

And to see several more photos of Fox Kits on this site, here are the links:

We have been seeing foxes crossing the road frequently, but it is just a fleeting glance. Craig's photos are always great to see.

Thanks, Bob. We rarely see Foxes at our place, though we do hear them sometimes at night. I would love to see the kits.
