While Andy Carver was just waking up on Monday morning, a pair of foxes was just settling down for a nap – on his roof.
“My wife had just opened the blinds and that was the first thing I saw. I was like, how did they get up there?” He told local reporters. After checking out the scene, the answer was clear as day. Breckenridge, Colorado has received a ton of snow in the last week – almost 4 feet, to be exact – and these clever cuties climbed on top of it like stairs. The pictures are both comical and adorable, as the foxes can be seen curling up around their bushy tails to stay warm. Walking through so much snow gets tiring, after all!
The red fox is a usual suspect in Colorado, and though they have an undeserved reputation of being dangerous, most foxes are unlikely to harm anyone as long as they aren’t bothered. They’re comfortable around human habitats, and just like these two unexpected guests, they don’t mind hopping a roof if there’s a chance to find some heat.
It’s hard out there when you’re living the fox lifestyle, and sometimes you just have to take it easy on the nearest roof. Let’s hope these two had a safe trip back to the woods. (h/t: Fox31)
