Hmmm. I’m hoping not to have foxes on our property when we move. The cat joins us in April and he’s going to learn to go outdoors little by little.
I have a cat that managed to survive 5 years of foxes in London.

I would probably be sad if a fox kills my cat, but can't really figure out what can you do about it?

Aren't cats supposed to climb trees and stuff to run away from the foxes ?

Most cats I know are the type I see foxes running away from.

I hope ours is, he's kind of a trusting dope. That's why we love him!
They’re not dopey if they feel threatened, trust me.
Even the soppiest most trusting cat can turn into a tiger when necessary.

Re: Foxes and domestic cats

Foxes are hardly a danger to cats.

They are more a danger to dogs not because of attacks, but because of transmitted diseases as discussed above.

Re: Foxes and domestic cats

Can't find a link but I remember a Conference with Bristol University fox specialist team, clearly stating foxes always give in to cats.

Re: Foxes and domestic cats

A friends cat was biten by a fox in his garden, luckily my friend came out just in time.

I might add that at the time the cat was 17 years old, so the fox must have thought of it as easy prey.
Ended up staying with the vet for 1 week with a bad infection from the bite.

The little hero pulled through

Re: Foxes and domestic cats

I have often watched our cats in the UK interact with foxes in our garden- foxes have always backed down. Our 3 legged cat wil just watch them walk by... but would give a fox a good beating if he even tried to come close.
