Tame Fox Can't Bear to Be Parted From Her Cuddly Toy in Adorable Video

A tame fox hand-reared after being abandoned as a cub came to get her toy teddy bear to take it back to her own cubs in a cute video shared by the animal's rescuer.

Michelle Krsnik, 19, who lives with the rescue named Foxie in her home country of Croatia, shares clips on TikTok and Instagram where she is building a large online following.

But now Foxie apparently has her own family of cubs.

Krsnik does not see her very often except when she pops in to pick up the teddy bear she adored while she was growing up.

On TikTok, Foxie boasts 126,000 followers and numerous viral clips, including one viewed over 11 million times.

Krsnik, a veterinary technician, said she saved Foxie as a little cub after coming across her alone and hungry in the woods about a year ago.

After the cub grew up, Foxie wanted to leave the house and go to her natural habitat, so Krsnik and her partner let her.

However, the cute animal returns to the house every night for cuddles and treats, and Michelle shares the tender images on social media.

Videos show the fox shaking its tail and making cute squeaking sounds whenever Krsnik approaches her.

Foxie is also seen happily flopping on the ground to be petted and stroked by her favorite humans.

The posts on social media have brought a wide range of reactions.

Some people, who don't know the story of Foxie, are dubious about petting the animal.

Instagram user @shefeirceeee commented: "She could've lost that hand"

Also, user @soldatova_mila said: "I'm not sure if this is the right thing to do"

@moses_nyagota26 used some sense of humor and said: "Don't do that on a full moon"

It is clear that humans are not used to seeing this type of unusual interaction.

Krsnik told Zenger News: "I love animals and I grew up with them. I had the opportunity to save one wild animal and I did it.

"Foxie was found in the woods, without a mother, hungry, and cold.

"At first we fed her milk and later she ate dog and cat food.

"When Foxie grew up, she wanted to go out into nature and we let her go.

"Since then, she visits us every night and cuddles with us.

"People who don't like animals and treat animals like rubbish, they are not people to me.

"I would just tell them that God sees everything."
