Images are international I'm glad to say. :D Not too sure about names & how I'm supposed to recognise their food is a mystery. :urm: Barry & I spent about half an hour scouring the lane for a particular plant Mum eats as a medicine & found it :D so hopefully language won't be a problem. She is exceptional in her ability to send images though. We "met" one in February & sensed its surprise at connecting to a 2 leg so there is hope yet :)

Do you get a thought of what they are thinking or do you get pictures of what they are thinking ?

It varies, sometimes I feel their emotions, other times I get images, like looking at photos or pictures, I also get smells & tastes (which can be pretty disgusting sometimes, have you ever tasted a freshly killed rabbit :x I also benefit from their much greater senses sometimes, when we were in Greece I could hear the mozzies & rushed round splatting them :lol:

Not really but he is pretty thick :lol:
My very first animal contact was with one of our cats but that was years ago & I didn't have any more after he died until Mum.

I certainly felt sick afterward Aroma. :cry:
Last night we had a Chinese takeaway & as usual far more than we could eat, so I put the rest of it into one of the takeaway dishes that they came in & put it out for the foxes. It all went, dish as well, so I guess Mum had a take away for Mothers Day too :lol:

Lucky you dont have it with your dog. Imagine smelling the things they sniff, which is 1000s x our perceptions.

Do foxes have a similar sense of smell? I suppose they do. Just not the inclination to sniff other foxes butts as dogs do. :lol: :lol:

Just been watching ladies night out, Mum, Missie & Beauty all down eating together, have stuck the tape on & will try to get a picture to post.
Glad to say I only have a cat & no link like that with him. Mother foxes wash cubs bums though :oops: :cry:

Yes ours have been feeding for a few weeks now. We laughed last night, to keep the foxes off the HH food we kept 1 of the old HH houses & put their food in that, last night we had a shot of Mum with her head in the HH house :roll:
One thing you probably already know on the cat food, it's best to stick to chicken, beef can be too rich, especially early in the season and also for babies :)
On Mothers Day we went to Marwell Zoo Park & we were watching a bat eared fox, I was just thinking its tail was pretty poor compared with Mum's when she joined us. The bat ear stopped dead (it had been eating) & looked all round :worry: it started eating again but kept looking up. Barry said have we got company? I confirmed we had. Mum then said he wasn't really like a fox, he felt more like a cat? :ni:
We moved off to let it eat & looked at the Coatis & suddenly one of them that was on top of its climbing frame/tree turned round & started to run head first down a branch, Mum said Aaahh & left. :lol:

Had to slam on the anchors this morning as a fox ran into the path of my car, but lucky for him I missed. :x:x

Silly fox, he should know better :x Mum is very wary of roads & has passed that on to all her cubs :D
So glad you managed to miss him ( a female would have had more sense :lol: )

Thats part of the trouble, it's an easy meal for a fox so that draws them on to the roads. :cry:

The first cubs came down tonight. :D
We looked out to see 4 foxes then realised 2 were smaller. 1 was also quite ungainly, it did not follow the normal route down & went the wrong side of a low conifer then scrambled through it :roll: It then stood and watched the adults for a short time then came down, "kissed" Mum & picked up a dog biscuit, the second one was more confident, got the right route and came straight down & picked up a biscuit :D Both are quite dark & look very healthy, Mum then rounded up all the fluffees to take back for the other cubs. One followed her the other stayed down with Kinkie and picked up a few more biscuits.
The Hedgehogs have also been around a lot, in pairs circling & snuffling :roll: so all is normal in the garden & Joan will be feeding them whilst we are away.
Am just going to go out & add more biscuits to the 15 boxes of biscuits/nuts/dogfood/& treat sticks etc which we have left for them. There are 15 bags of bones or fluffies in the freezer ready as well, plus a big box of hedgehog food with a scoop & film canisters ready for the fish, phew we are all done apart from adding to the boxes.

Ours do the same to Kinnie cat. He loves to play chase with the younger ones...never the adults of course. They are just so agile.

While we were in Luxor Phrans mother had been feeding them early because she cannot see well in the dark. Last evening when it was still broad daylight I went out to the garage and met a fox coming down the path to look for the food!
We put the food straight out and the birds came down and started eating it!! Within a 2 minutes the fox was back and chased off the birds. Did the same tonight and had 3 foxes in the garden together in daylight.
They had obviously learned that the birds were pinching their food so have shifted to coming in daylight :)
