The Instagram profile of the fox named Juniper has an educational purpose, according to her owner.
“I’m not the hero who rescued an orphaned baby fox from the wild. This isn’t that story,” writes the owner on Juniper’s Instagram page. “I want to use my Instagram to be an educational resource. She’s still a fox and acts like a fox. … It takes much more time and patience to care for her than it would [a dog or cat].”
She explains that foxes are messy pets who pee everywhere and smell horrid. Her ultimate goal? Stopping the misinformation that has started the trend of having foxes as novelty pets. They are hard work, but they are cute, right? See for yourself.
