After years of having poor old woody who was terrified of the slightest bang, crackle or pop we now have rusty who want to see whats going on and even the loudest firework bang doesn't even make him twitch.

The fox and cat were laying down together until we came up to them, the fox is one that will now follow us home and sit at the back gate with rusty winding him up

Our woody  would hid in a cupboard and even in the daytime he was a struggle to get out and if a bang went off he'd  drag me home. Rusty hears a bang and he's  huffing and puffing. Wanting to see what caused it

Thats very normal here with the foxes and cats  but  normally by the time i have my pgone out for a photo onevot the other has wandered away. I have heard of fox attacks in other areas but thats normally by a country fox coming into town although I've  only every seen friendly behaviour. 

We guess there'd  be no problem with loud noises after we took rusty too a outdoor pursuits  event when we went and looked at clay pigeon  shooting, he just sat without    twitching and seemed more than happy . A man who had bought a  dog  that he wanted as a gun hadn't  been so lucky  he was wrongly  trying to drag his obviously distressed  dog closer to the guns, he was still a couple of hundred feet away and the dog was in a state of panic , if the dog had turned on him i couldn't  have blamed it
