Leon Smith thought he was cuddling with his girlfriend in the early morning, but when he turned around, he found out what he thought was his girlfriend, was actually a fox.
The fox didn’t seem to mean any harm, it just wanted to cuddle too!
Smith, 30, from Hampton Hill in London, told The Sun : “I just couldn’t believe it. It was so calm, just staring at me.”
In the time it took Smith to come to, the fox just sat calmly on his bed, and that’s when Smith decided to snap a quick picture on his phone of the furry little creature.
In other animal related news, The Inquisitr recently reported on a new giant panda addition to the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. to mother Mei Xiang.
The new cub is the third for Mei Xiang, who was seen cradling her newborn on the zoo’s “Panda Cam” shortly after she gave birth.
As of Friday, August 24, zoo officials didn’t know the sex of the cub, which is about the size of a stick of butter, reports Reuters.
However, they have been watching the cub closely to make sure the little one is healthy.
The Inquisitr also reported on a rare brown, tan, and white panda that has recently made a public appearance.
QiZai has been making quite the splash considering he is one of very few pandas with this interesting coloring.
“It’s estimated that only 200 to 300 Qinling pandas currently live in the wild, and the vast majority of these show only small patches of brownish hair mixed in with their black fur.”
When it comes to Leon Smith, as suprised as he was, he knew having the wild fox in his home wasn’t safe.
According to Mirror News, Smith chased the fox around the home for a good ten minutes before he finally got the animal out.
Girlfriend Sophie laughed when she got home and saw who her other half had been cosying up to, but admitted she is nervous about the possibility of the fox making a return visit.
Turns out the fox had gotten into the home through the cat door, which Leon Smith and his girlfriend are both considering removing so the fox can’t make his way back in.
