I wish ‘fox catchers’ were a thing, but they are a protected species in the UK, and the wildlife organisations, want the foxes to stay in the areas that they know, much like hedgehogs.

So I’ve had to resort to marking my territory with my own urine! Seems to be working – fox sniffs it and then disappears, doesn’t hang around. That’s been the case for the last two nights – so hopefully he will continue to be scared of the scent.

You can get a product called Mountain Lion from but it’s quite pricey and is quite a small bottle, and I’d have to pay overseas delivery charges as it would have to be shipped over from the US. Might be really effective, but would cost too much when I can do it for free.
