Esther

Esther was one of the kindest foxes you could ever meet. She came to us in August 2018 and, from the information that the lady who's garden she was in gave us, we think she was either 9 or 10 years old and had 8 or 9 lots of cubs which is an incredible amount. However, the last litter very nearly killed her because of her age. When we got her she went straight to the vets because she was very weak. The vet told us that she had enlarged Kidneys but for now she was okay to live with us as she was not in pain and was still relatively healthy for a fox of her age. We didn’t know how long we were going to have her, it could have been weeks or months so we made the decision to give her whatever food she wanted, her favourite was Deli cooked chicken (excluding cooked bones of course). We are so glad we had her for the 3 months but wish enormously that it could have been longer as on 7th November 2018 she had to be put to sleep due to her Kidneys getting worse. She was such a sweet fox who got on with everyone. She was incredibly friendly for an adult fox and got on well with Amber, another fox that we have at the moment, and even our deer, Willow. She stole our heart and we will miss her greatly. Whilst it is very sad, this is part of what we do. Sometimes there is nothing else to do other than wait but in the meantime we always aim to make the remaining part of an animal’s life, however long or short that made be, the best time possible and when the time comes for them, we are always there until the end.
