Having pets can be quite the hassle, especially if they are wild and they visit when they choose. They like to wake us up too early in the morning to play, to eat, to take a walk. They like to nibble on our fingers and toes even though it’s not always as comfortable as it seems. They like to scratch our furniture leaving us with frayed couch edges and claw marks in our favorite wooden chairs. But it is all forgotten the moment we see their smiles.

There is something so extremely adorable when we see pets being naughty little critters then hitting us with the megawatt force of their smiles. Everything is forgotten and forgiven the moment they come to have a cuddle and we become putty in their hands. Check out this compilation of animals doing what they do best. Being cute!

Animals are amazing creatures that seem to brighten up our lives. Sure, there are some animals that you would not want to get anywhere near, but then there are some that you just want to cuddle and hug like this fox here. None the less, all animals deserves the utmost respect and care as they are very valuable to us and the environment! It seems that this fox is having the time of his life in this clip here!

For a guy who weighs less than a few pounds, he sure is fearless! As a popular exotic pet around the world, this pup has probably never encountered its natural prey, or experienced the life threatening fear of a natural predator. In its natural habitat the fennec does have to avoid a few predators. It is small enough for raptors to catch and eat (owls and eagles and the like), hyenas (remember, we’re talking about Africa), and even domesticated dogs. In its defense, the fennec is probably too small to resist large predators, but at least it can burrow into the desert sand to hide.

Intelligence? This fox has brains aplenty, and it even shows in it vigorous play. You can see the smallest canine is still a contender in the arena of smarts and personality. It sacrifices nothing to be an adorable, loving family member, too. These qualities probably have something to do with it being a social animal in the wild, probably similar to other dogs. Unfortunately, we can’t really draw conclusions about fennec fox family life in the wild, because there isn’t a lot we know about it, yet. We know wolf packs are highly organized, but if the fennec is anything like European and North American fox species, well, foxes tend to not form packs, but live and hunt alone. Other fox species tend to be loners, except when mating and pupping. Indeed, male foxes tend to be something of wanderers, extending their territories on the prowl for other girl foxes.

All skills it would use in the wild to secure wild, living food. Being omnivorous, this little guy is more of an opportunistic feeder, and will eat any small organic life that it can chew a piece of and digest. This might be small rodents, insects, perhaps reptiles, fruits, roots, and eggs. More interestingly, this fox was waiting just for this and for sure it made its Christmas way better.

For the many of us Thanksgiving is the time we wait for in a year. The holiday cheer, the snow covered streets and most importantly the the wonderful energy and hype within the people with wide smiles on their faces.
