You must remember Rylai, the cutest white fox that we wrote about recently. Well, Rylai is now 2-months old and she’s enjoying her life alongside her owner.
“I’ve wanted a pet fox for several years. After a lot of research and waiting, I felt that my home and schedule were ready. Rylai is much more stubborn than a cat or a dog in every aspect”.
“When she wants something, it is much more difficult to deter her”.
“Her stunning coat color is the result of over 100 years of domestic breeding – she’s not albino. Her color does not occur in the wild and only exists in captive bred foxes. While color is not the only reason why she can’t survive in the wild, it makes her easy prey for predators and also makes hunting for food near impossible.
“Rylai can’t be left alone for long periods of time. I don’t leave for long dinners, movies, or anything that takes over 2 hours and even that is a stretch. Rylai is still learning how to walk on a lead with a harness but pet foxes in general can be taught to walk on lead”, explains her owner.
