Foxes are known for being friendly and curious, and nothing highlights it better than all of the visits they pay people at their homes.

That's right, these beautiful, nosy creatures keep finding ways into our kitchens, bedrooms... and I understand if you think I'm making it up. It sounds sketchy. Luckily, people who are surprised by these animals often take photos of them before asking them to leave.

Bored Panda collected these pictures to show that nobody is safe from these uninvited -- yet absolutely adorable -- guests, so don't panic if it happens to you as well. Instead, get the camera!

As you can see from the images, foxes have made a success of living with people. It's not due to their mythical cunning, but rather their ability to adapt to changing conditions; foxes are found in cities throughout Europe and North America. In fact, many Brits know more about urban foxes than their rural counterparts.

Urban foxes have such a wide diet, it's amazing they aren't suffering from diarrhea 24/7 -- they eat earthworms, insects, fruit and vegetables and a wide variety of both domestic wild birds and mammals. Most of the birds they eat are feral pigeons and small garden birds, and the most frequently eaten mammals are usually field voles, abundant in allotments, railway lines, and other grassy areas.

So if you want to, you definitely can feed a fox that comes to your home. Lots of people do, both regularly and occasionally. You can give them virtually anything, really. Being carnivores, they love cooked or raw meat and tinned pet food.

They won't become dependent on you but if you feed them heavily and regularly, they can become over-confident and less wary of people. This could encourage them to approach strangers for food, a behavior that shouldn't be encouraged. So it's best not to put out large amounts of food every night.
