    Just wondering if I saw a cat or a fox. 99% sure it was a fox, then it climbed a 6ft fence, stood on top for a bit then dropped down the other side.

    More likely to be a fox than a cat unless you’re wearing your dad’s bi-focals. Was the cat faaaaar away?

    Seriously though, my dog chased a fox onto the roof of my grandad’s house (two story Edinburgh townhouse). Dog didn’t get past the windowsill.

    batfink. Cows can’t climb fences. It’s the essence of the English rural idyll.

    Yes, and some can walk along the top of fence panels like cats. Most urban foxes cannot, as they never need to do that as people leave food out for them/food is left on the floor from takeaways.

    In my defence, it was 2am, dark and I may have been a bit inebriated.

    That fox is not climbing the fence. It may have been placed there.

    YES!
    Normally to eat our chickens… A 6ft wooden fence is no real obstacle when there’s lunch on the other side…

    Foxes are amazing. Check out the video near the bottom of this page of one squeezing through a tiny gap in a wire fence.

    Some seem to be better at it than others though
