    I have seen foxes (and dogs) run off by cats before over the years, but when we moved to our present location a friend told us of a fox killing a cat. I immediately thought, "urban myth"! But about a year ago I was out walking the dog with my daughter and we both saw a big fox, walking down out of the the estate we live on the edge of, carrying a dead cat. Ellen, my daughter has seen it once more with a dead cat, I have no reason to disbelieve her!

    Blindness to suffering is an inherent consequence of natural selection. Nature is neither kind nor cruel but fiercely indifferent.

    I've had that too near carlisle, but it was a younger cat and the fox was on the lamp with it. We missed the fox but it dropped the cat which was sadly dead. Urban foxes are known to take back garden pets.

    Basically the fox is an opportunist and if it thinks it can best any animal it will have a go .The older foxes know what their limits are whereas the younger ones have to learn the hard way .However there will always be one or two that specialise in killing cats and lets face it if a terrier can kill them with ease for fun then charlie certainly can when killing for food .
