The past few of weeks I have sited a fox around my house. On one occasion I saw it in my neighbour's, neighbour's front garden.
Having heard of how skilled foxes are at climbing I am making the assumption that it ate the rabbit.
So until I see another rabbit, this is the end of my blog.

So after coming back from my October holiday (on the 19th) I saw a wild rabbit in my garden. It instantly saw me and bolted to it's hidey hole in our compost heap.
Just to clarify I don't live in the countryside or the middle of nowhere. I live in a large town, not even close to the outskirts, within walking distance to the CBD. So you can imagine I was pretty darn shocked to see this wild animal making its home here.
Anyway a couple days later (around the...
