How To Toilet Train a Pet

Posted on March 27, 2010 at 11:24 AM Comments comments (0)

Okay, so I keep getting asked how I possibly trained a cat to go to the bathroom on the toilet. Well this method can be used to toilet train any animal that goes in a litter box. My dream is to train the fox how to use the toilet, but I am not getting my hopes up, since just using the litter box is an accomplishment. And remember, you should only change steps EVERY OTHER day, or if your pet has trouble, every few days. Here is a day by day guide of how to train an animal;

A Krusty, Spoiled Brat

Posted on March 23, 2010 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Sometimes Fennecs can be brats.

I bottle fed her. I took off the first two weeks I had her off work and brought her everywhere with me. She was my child, and she loved me so much. She was so sweet as she got older too but there was one problem.

I started to spoil her very badly. When she didn't get her way, she would pout like a 2 year old. One time, I didn't give her any of the people food I was cooking i...

Sometimes Fennecs love to snuggle, but it's always on their terms.

Scared or Mischievous?

Posted on March 5, 2010 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (0)

So today my cat reminded me of a very funny thing he does. Whenever I play hide and go seek with my cat (well, it's more a game of seek, the cat hides in a room and I search for him, but when I find him he runs to another hiding spot), his tail gets SUPER puffy, like the picture below.

When he used to play with the fox her little foxy tail, which was already so puffy, would fluff up even more. My vet told me cat's tails, he wasn't sure abo...

Oh, the Bath Time

Posted on February 28, 2010 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (0)

None of my animals ever really liked baths, due to whatever circumstances. Some foxes like baths, some don't, depending on their personality type. Some LOVE it, and some HATE it.

Most foxes never like baths and because I made the mistake to not give her baths until she was older....This was the case. She saw the baths and was like, ZOMG! That clear wet stuff comes in bigger shapes than my water?! When I placed her gently i...

The 'Near Death' Experience

Posted on February 26, 2010 at 2:30 PM Comments comments (0)

My 8 month old Snow Bengal cat, Alias, used to LOVE all other animals. He would play with dogs, chasing them and playing tag. Even though she would bite his tail and chase him even when he was work out, he still liked her. And I figured when I adopted him that hey, foxes are able to be trained to use leashes so why not train him too?:cool:

And so we went for walks, which at first they were more like ...

Has Anyone Seen a Fox?

Posted on February 26, 2010 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)

I would take my little Fennec to the beach very often. I figured hey, Fennecs live in the desert so she should love the sand! Well, the first visit was kind of rough. There was almost (I would venture out to say 'sandstorm' but it wasn't quite as bad as the ones on National Geographic) a storm. It was extremely windy and sand would hit you so hard it stung your skin. So I only stayed there for about half an hour and she stayed hidden inside her little impact-resistant carier...

Excerpt From 'There's A Fox In The House'

Posted on January 1, 2009 at 1:45 AM Comments comments (0)

...so of course I decided to get a second fox in April 1997.

A fennec is a three-pound desert dweller native to the Middle East, sharp-toothed and short-tempered, with enormous ears and dark, soulful eyes. Fennecs don't walk anywhere; they dash, lightning-fast, tail high. Like any fox, they can be imprinted and trained, but not tamed.

So I know ...

Fennec Fox Interview

Interview with Denis Bressler, Donna Fritz, Julie Reid, and Gabrielle Collins

Positives of fennecs as pets?

DB: I personally think they make one of the neatest exotics pets out there. They are simple to take of, and very small. I never met anyone who didn't think they weren't adorable and cute with those great big ears. Their food expense is relatively ...
