This fox was rescued from a fur mill when he was just a pup (baby foxes are called “kits” but they clearly have more in common with puppies than kittens so let’s be etymologically rational here). So you can hardly begrudge him an annual treat to celebrate his rescue day, even if that treat is an entire bag of marshmallows. After all, he’s saving some for later.

This is a silver fox, which is why he kinda looks like a wolverine or maybe a tiny bear. There are two types of silver fox: the kind that are actually a variation of the red fox, relatively rare in the wild but selectively bred as fur animals, and the kind that are Anderson Cooper. This is the first kind. Though feeding Anderson Cooper marshmallows would probably also be adorable.
