This Fox And Hedgehog May Be The Cutest Dinner Dates Ever


Lucy Goacher has always been a lover of animals. Since she was a child, she collected animals and showed great affection to every single one she came across. But when rambunctious foxes started rummaging through her pets’ food bowls, she was a little nervous. And when a little hedgehog joined the party, she was so scared for how the wild animals would react. What she witnessed next was unbelievable.

A Dedicated Protector

Ever since Goacher was a girl, she showed a penchant for animals both wild and domestic. If she found an injured bird, she would rush it home to take care of it. If there was ever a small creature on its own, she couldn’t resist taking it in so it wouldn’t be alone. Goacher’s interest never faded, which benefitted everyone when she caught the cutest dinner guests outside of her house.

It Started With An Adoption

While Goacher didn’t make a career out of her passion for pets, she did immediately adopt some fur babies as soon as her writing profession took off. It started with two Dachshunds, Hans and Bruno, and ended with a fancy feline named Libby. She was happy with her new little family until something seemed wrong.

What’s Going On

The little household seemed happy and healthy until Goacher noticed something unsettling. The three precious pets were starting to get thin, yet their bowls were always empty. It seemed like they were eating everything in sight, but they were somehow losing weight. Was it some kind of disease? What could affect both canines and cats like this? One night, she found out.

Some Scurrying Scoundrels

One night she heard scuffling outside of her house near her pet’s food bowls. It was a fox! She started leaving extra food out so there was enough food for all four animals, but to her surprise, four foxes Much to her delight, the foxes were kind to her own pets and they seemed to live in harmony for the coming months. But then another creature joined the feast.

An Unlikely Pairing

Foxes are known to be vicious animals, but these four seemed to be playful and kind. Then one evening while she was snapping photos, a wee little hedgehog came wandering through the hedges. Her excitement quickly faded as she waited for the foxes to attack, praying that they wouldn’t. Luckily, they let the hedgehog walk on by and now dine with him happily. So cute!
