On Monday, a wildlife rescue located in Shropshire, England, got an unusual call. A nearby cat shelter’s newest arrival was not the kitten they believed her to be. She was a little fox cub.

“They are often thought to be kittens as they don’t resemble a fox at all,” Fran Hill, manager of Cuan Wildlife Rescue, told The Dodo. “We’ve had some in the past that may be a month or two old that people have reared and then realize it’s not a cat!” Open Next Page To See More
