Forest Regional Message Board
Iíve never seen a wild fox either (despite living in its natural habitat area) but seen wild wolves and rabbits instead. The only popular animals left to see are aforementioned fox and a wild bear which is a doubtful thing to wish to do. Even though my mother has encountered them all, I wasnít around at the time. Apart from that, Iíve been lucky to see various small forest/field inhabitants such as snakes, hamsters, mice, and such. They all are adorable and cute in spite of the fact that some of them are pretty dangerous for humans.
Nonetheless, meeting wild animals is something special for me as for a ďcity kidĒ, I feel connection with the nature and diversity of one. Itís so cool when you walk in the woods and a random squirrel comes closer and you pass your hand and the squirrel touches it, it feels like a tiny but precious magic moment.
I grew up with a fox that liked to come out and hang around in the neighbor's yard. It started as a four-legged fox, but ended up as a three-legged fox (and amazingly survived that way for years) after tangling with a local Great Horned Owl. They are handsome creatures.
Irrelevant to anyone but me, but Recife is currently underwater. The rain is finally beginning to stop now after 12+ hours of continuous rain. And Recife is a city-sized raft floating over a swamp, so everything always floods (there's a neighborhood near where I live literally called "drowned ones"). And the tides are starting to rise so it's about to get worse.
So much for the Brazillian Venice, ay?
I like the message and the design, especially how "lose it" looks like a hole in the picture
Rain is no stranger to Recife, right? Here in the US, Seattle is probably the most notoriously rainy city ("Rain City" is, in fact, one of its nicknames), but looking at the charts it averages just over 40% of what you do. Almost the same number of rainy days, but it looks like you guys just get slammed every time it comes down!
Hope you can stay safe and dry.
Speaking of foxes ... and cats.
We had a stray cat who adopted us around 2004 or so, known as The Mammy Cat. Even after she had a trip to get her tubes tied, the name stuck.
But anyway, generally speaking she was a demon to most other cats and all other animals. No dog ever got the better of her. Or fox as it turns out. Over the years she eventually moved into the house full time of her own choice but this was before that. So she's there her eating her dinner with a few of her comrades and the fox shows up looking for a share. The other cats scatter but the after a brief showdown between the fox and the Mammy Cat, the fox backs down, before before she resorts to violence, and patiently waits until after she's finished before he was permitted to eat.
We lost the Mammy Cat earlier this year at about age 18 after she was diagnosed with cancer.
The cat I refer to above is provisionally known as the Replacement Cat. She showed up and took up lodgings in the shed a few days before the Mammy Cat was put to sleep.
I've seen foxes several times, twice up close. Taking a late evening walk I met a very curious young fox that kept coming up to me, then running off, then coming back a little closer. Kept that up for like half an hour maybe, was a pretty cool experience. In my late teens (iirc) we had one come up to stare through a window, I'm guessing probably attracted to the scent of one of our dogs.
The one downside to having foxes living around you is their scream. They genuinely can sound like a woman being murdered - it's horrifying. More than a few calls to police have resulted from folks unfamiliar with their sound or presence waking up believing a brutal killing is taking place in the woods nearby!
A couple of times in my current place when I stay up very very late, the foxes get confident enough to come out in force with their calls. It's loud too.
Otherwise gotta say, I like foxes. There was one that used to live in the park near me, and would occasionally swoop round to have a look at people in the evenings. They're fun.
Grew up with a cat very similar to that! My mother tells me of an utterly horrifying story when Kitty the Cat faced down a dog that was still bloody from tearing another cat to shreds. Long story short, Kitty made the murderous mutt back down and retreat.
Not sure if she ever faced down a fox though.
It's almost unbelievable when you first experience it. Like living through a scene from a horror movie. Hard to believe the sounds you are hearing from out the dark woods in the middle of the night are just some little ole foxes. First time I heard them, it took my breath away.
Also, since this is Forest, I'm gonna mention that the reason why Recife floods so easily is partly because of how enviromentally screwed the whole city is, because the mangrove forests were almost completely destroyed and their soil basically buried under concrete. There's nowhere for the water to go so it's just stuck here. I say "almost" because the destruction is still ongoing, even though there are proven links between the deforestation of mangroves and the excessive (and deadly) yearly floods...
We also have a shark problem because of deforestation. Hurray.
