    With all the dry weather, I expect my pond is in high demand - of course I'm not usually around to witness events!

    Engaging floof mode!

    Poor boy looks rather mangy at the back. :(

    I was impressed Brooke stood her ground, a few quiet moans to herself about the intrusion. Of course she knew I was there too so maybe she wouldn't be so brave on her own - I hope not anyway!

    Gosh Brooke certainly is brave! :Nailbiting

    Poor Mr Fox, at least he got a nice drink from the pond, I do feel sorry for them, we have some living near us too.

    Brilliant photos. Makes you realise just how feisty our felines can be.

    So nice to see that there was/is no intention to harm on either side,just a healthy respect for each other :)

    Oh Brooke, you didn’t like that Mr Fox did you! You would scare me being all puffed out :D
    Good girl standing your ground, it’s your pond, but how kind of you to allow Mr Fox a little drink.


    I wonder if that was a vixen, she has probably been super glued with her cubs for weeks so must be absolutely starving and thirsty.

    I think cats and foxes do respect each other and avoid confrontation majority of the time. I have witnessed Loulou being stalked by a fox and chasing a fox out of our garden!

    Don’t take any risks beautiful Brooke, run next time!

    No it was a Mr. Fox, not Mrs. ;) One of last years cubs I'd think.

    Jessie's first time in the cheap bed I got her from Amazon. Someone had posted a link. It came very quickly too; just slightly over a week.
    I'm going to move it to one of her night time spots
