Hi everyone,I think we have a new visitor in our garden which left us 'a present' in my vegetable box last night.I can't figure out what it is. We have never had cats around as we have two small dogs, so I don't think it is a cat. I also don't think it is any of the dogs, as, it does not look like it and they would not dig/use a small 'latrine'. They go on the lawn...We have noticed digging in this place before but never any 'left overs'. We thought it might be the birds digging. When I 'patted' the area down, the first time I noticed the digging, it was a very foul smell, not like earth or compost would be.I have also noticed some digging around other areas, especially where it has been new planting.Any idea?
To my untrained eye, ztiitso, it looks like fox. Which can be particularly... perfumed.
Fox stools vary a lot (dependent on diet). But sometimes they look like the ones in your photo.
Unless, of course, you have really, really strange neighbours... ;-)
As I say, I'm no expert (and will never be one). Let's see what some smarter Community members have to say.
