Vixie, like thousands of her kind, was born on a fur farm, where she had to spend her short and joyless life in a small cage. She lived behind a wire mesh and her paws were sick from lack of physical activity. The conditions of her detention excluded physical activity. She would have ended her life as a seven-month-old teenager, whom the farmers would have first killed with electricity and then skinned.
It’s hard to say where her fur coat would have flaunted. Perhaps some rich lady would have worn it wrapped around her neck, or it would have become the hem of a jacket, or an ornament for shoes. Fortunately, none of this happened to her. She is one of the few who got the opportunity to live in a loving home.
“My goal, as well as a big dream, was to save at least one defenseless fox from this terrible farm and thus save her from a life full of suffering and cruel death in the end. My heart was always filled with pain when I watched photos and videos about the unbearable conditions in which these animals were kept. And even though I was powerless to help everyone, I felt that it was my duty to try to change the life for the better of at least one of them.” — says the guy who lives with Vixie.
“I could not imagine how difficult it would be to buy a fox. The most difficult thing was to find a breeder who would agree to sell such an animal. I remember calling all the farms that are engaged in breeding foxes. But I was refused everywhere. But after many attempts and telephone conversations about buying a wild animal in one farm, they still agreed to sell it to me.”
Now the fox lives in the house of her savior and pleases him with her funny antics.
