Gallery of London's urban foxes

Shot here by Natalie Lowe sunbathing on the roof of its convertible, a fox relaxes before evening's activities come due. Below, a fox pop takes a trip on the London Underground, as observed by Stephen Ebert. Check out the full gallery at Londonist. A common sight in London, foxes moved in after World War II and have become a symbol of the city. They're mostly harmless, but the tabloids there love to run fox-ate-my-baby stories.

  1. There used to be one who would sleep on the roof of my car. He looked like a crackhead. I called him Crackhead Charlie.

    He was a good dude.

  2. In all the time I spent in London I never saw a fox. I feel slightly cheated now.

    Once I saw a train pull up and when the doors opened a couple of pigeons walked out. My spouse still doesn't believe this in spite of the number of other people who've seen the same thing.

  3. My niece is spending the semester in Kingston-on-Thames, a bit upriver from London. On her first night over there a fox trotted up to her. She said "hi" and crossed the street.

    Probably a good move. I imagine her getting scammed out of her oyster card and loose change.

A cat thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me...I must be a god!
