The Grey Fox: The Cattiest Dog

The grey fox, one of the native species that For Fox Sake rehabilitates, is one of those peculiar animals that massively fails the “duck test.” In many ways, this shy, reclusive animal seems exactly like a wild cat. It is small, nocturnal, solitary, and agile, and has retractable claws that it uses to climb trees, where it spends most of its time.

But, despite appearances, grey foxes are actually canids— dogs. They are actually the oldest surviving member of the dog family and have remained virtually unchanged for millennia.
