yep...fair points. But keeping cats within a specified garden is immpossible. Their independance is part of their attraction for me.

Sorry to touch such a nerve. A wild animal that strays into your yard is different than one that is invited by way of temptation with table scraps and JAM sandwiches. So, as you ask, to protect your pets, you can reduce the incidence of disease transmission by not feeding wild animals. And, you can protect the wild animal by not habituating them to people; your neighbor may not see the fox as a beautiful animal but rather, a pest. As for your cats, they should be indoor or restricted to your property, thus eliminating the chance of getting run over.

I wouldnt say its beauty is just a notion. What do you suggest to protect our pets..? Kill all wild animals that might stray into the same enviroment? We are lucky in the UK, that we dont have rabies. A certain amount of risk and tollerance is needed with all aspects of life. My cats live in an urban area...do I try and ban motor vehicles in case they get run over. No..I can only hope that it doesnt happen..and if it does, then I do my best to save/help it or grieve. Such is the way of things. Tollerance and risk.

Habituation cultivates disease. The notion that this is a beautiful animal will not reduce the risk to your pets who share the same yard.

What is with you voters!? There is nothing wrong with this pick. Do you not appreciate posters' own photos? Be more creative! Try not to use other people's photos. My vote is positive on this pick...
