For a baby that has just come into the world, everything seems bewildering and difficult to overcome if it were not for its mother’s care. That’s why when these helpless creatures, of whatever species, are left orphaned, adrift, our hearts cringe.
A poor little baby fox, just a few days old, wandered sadly and desperately through a desolate terrain, with very little chance of survival. While looking for something to eat among the leaves, as if by a miracle, he caught sight of a couple.
The helpless baby had teary eyes.
The little fox immediately understood that this was his only chance to be saved, and without hesitating twice, he began to chase them, begging for help.
The couple could not help but be moved, leaving him there alone, malnourished, without the possibility of feeding, was not an option.
He was shivering from the cold and his pitiful cries showed his desperation.
Immediately, they gently took him in their arms so that he would not be frightened, and covered him with their coat. The little baby was grateful for this.
He had the most heartwarming look ever seen.
When they arrived at his home, they fed him, but he could barely stand. After receiving the first basic care: a good bath, a warm bed and lots of love, a visit to the vet was urgent.
There, they discovered that the little furry’s head was full of fleas that were driving him crazy.
He weighed less than half a kilo
The vet told them that he would have a long way to go, and that he needed a lot of care, which his mother would have given him.
So the couple didn’t hesitate to take him home to make him the darling of the household along with a puppy and a kitten, who adopted him as their own.
The lucky little fox got the best siblings who never stopped looking after him.
Thus began an exciting but slow road to recovery. He started to have all the comforts, such as a little bed and a space just for him, so he could eat and rest.
In addition, he had a very large garden at home, where he began to develop a wonderful friendship with the other pets.
Within a month, the little guy gained weight, regained his bright eyes and coat. He was never seen with teary eyes again, and the shy and vulnerable little animal, struggling for his life in a forest, was left behind.
He even changed his color, and became an agile young fox of a characteristic orange color, with the strong and adventurous spirit, typical of any specimen of his species.
That couple were her heaven-sent angels and now her life is as happy as she deserved.
Although the story does not conclude yet in his release to his natural habitat, that will probably be the next step after being sure he is not in any danger.
It is amazing how destiny takes care of placing angels at the right time and in the right place to save the animals that need it most. If only everyone acted like them.
It is to be thankful that the little fox found them on their way, before falling into the hands of some predator, and we are not necessarily talking about a wild animal, but the human that many times is the worst threat to these innocent creatures.
It is a wonderful story that could inspire others to act whenever it is in their power to help. Heaven will be full of these souls who thought of animals first.
