Foxy was special.. she placed her trust in me and we developed a special understanding of one another I believe. For the second year she had her young in a building nearby and I used to help her out with food which she always took right over to her babies. In return for the food she gave me some lovely photo ops, images I would never have had a chance to get except for her.

She worked so hard to provide for her kits and when I spotted her body lying on the highway today I was devastated. She now has several babies who await her return, not knowing that will never be. I will continue trying to help them with food and hope that in time instinct will assist them in learning to provide for themselves.

Thanks so much Gloria for the spotlight!

    What a beautiful Girl and a good Mama. Foxy will still look after her babies from beyond the Bridge. For those who care- thank you for a proper burial. RIP Little Mama. Your friend will help with your babies below. I am so sorry..

    Oh no! I am SO sorry to read about Foxy....you've taken some amazing photos of her, and obviously developed a very special bond. Gloria's song is beautiful and fitting.

    This is heart breaking!!! I am so very sorry. Try seeing if there is an animal rescue group around that can help the little ones.
