Taking care of four little ones is a lot of work for a mom so this pretty lady was catching naps whenever she could. She did this with limited success.
If the kits were in the den, she got some peace and quiet. When they came outside though, they never let her rest for long. Either they wanted to play or they were hungry and she had to head off to find their next meal.
On this evening back in June, she enjoyed some down time but with the sun setting, she knew it was time to go catch dinner. The vixen stretched out to limber up and yawned as she worked on waking up. A mother’s work is never done!
