This fox and his guardian are so cute. It looks like the fox is winking too. Foxes are such adorable creatures. To me, they're like a mix between cats and dogs: Very agile, very mischievous and very smart. According to Wikipedia there are 37 species of foxes of which 12 are considered "true foxes", like the red fox pictured above. In some areas, you're allowed to have them as pets but it's not wide spread.
