Foxes… Are Not What You Think

Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (10-24-2021) #750: Featuring Catherine Raven and Christina Ha. Tracie says that her whole perception of the natural world was expanded and illuminated by reading Fox and I: An Uncommon Friendship. In her longer-than-usual conversation with the author, Catherine Raven, they venture into the many fascinating aspects of the natural world — right down to insects and the seeds of weeds — that the book explores, along with the author’s very special relationship with a wild fox. Then Christina Ha from the Meow Parlour in New York City talks about the adoption initiative from Dr. Elsey’s called the Power of Purrsuasion in which Dr. Elsey’s covers the visiting fees for potential adopters and part of the adoption fee.
