How should I take care of my pet fox "easily" and properly?

I remember that on this website called, it said that I needed the following:
( > means at least)

>250 sq. ft of enclosure space like a pen

Lots of space to run around (for the fox)

6 – 8 in. sand in the pen, for foxes love to dig

Premium/high quality dog food (no pork)

Pen walls have to sink in approx. 2 ft so they don’t dig out


These stuff are all difficult to acquire and I kinda really want a pet fox. Is there some way to take care of a pet RED fox without these accessories and stuff? Or at least something easier to acquire like a slightly smaller pen or a medium sized one, considering our house and yard is small. I mean, our yard can fit a 250 sq. ft pen but that would take up too much space. Plus, it’s kinda hard to manage a fox in general. Please help me. Professional answers GLADLY accepted.

have you considered a more appropriate pet fox … like a fennac fox ??? they stay small and basically can be kept and trained like a dog … you would need a vet who treats exotics though …

fennac foxes are bred in captivity to be raised as pets and are not taken from the wild …

Advanced Prime Rib Cooking Techniques, How To Cook Prime Rib

NO, the beef isn’t salty, just for the record and for all the comments today. This really keeps the roast juicy and not salty. Trust me, I’ve done this a lot.

Also I didn’t make it very clear, cook it initially at 450 for 10 minutes, and then lower the temp to 250 and cook 20 minutes for each pound or until internal temp is 120.

Also cook it at 450 for 10 minutes and then at 350 for 2o for each pound or until the internal temp reaches 120 for medium rare.

Here are some alternative ideas for cooking your prime rib. Making the kosher salt crust is really amazing, you’ll have to try it, and trust me, it isn’t too salty.

If you’ve never cooked a Prime Rib before watch this video first.

Frying a Prime Rib Steak

Frying of a Prime Rib Steak!!


1. Get 1.5 inch thick high quality Prime Ribs and here we did it with steaks without any fat.

2. Marinade 30 min before you fry them. Add following:
– fresh rosemary
– freshly grind black pepper
– some chilly powder
– olive oil
– few drops of soya sauce (not more, will burn and spoil the steak)
– lemon/lime juice or vinegar
– a little bit of hazel nut oil if you like

3. mix all these with the meat nicely and let the spices distribute.

4. get the pan ready. it has to be maximum possible hot.

5. fry the steaks for 1 min each side till 5-6 minutes.

REMEMBER: add the salt to taste while frying the steak to retain the juicy flavours. if given before the water and all nice flavours will go out…

Let the Steak rest for 2-3 minutes and serve with lemon juice, herb butter and fresh olives and get some nice and crunchy bread to go with it…

What is the best dog food to feed my German Shepherd and why?

Aside from cooking her meat myself, what’s the best quality dry dog food? I just spent $45 on a bag of Royal Canin, and Costco’s dog food has chicken & chicken meal as the 1st 2 ingredients, while Royal Canin’s 2nd ingredient is rice!

There is no single food that is "best". For example, some dogs thrive on grain-free foods, while grain-free is too rich for other dogs. What you want to find is the high-quality food that *your dog* does best on.

I recommend feeding dry food. It’s healthier for the gums and teeth.

On choosing a good dog food:
Read the ingredients on the food you buy. Go with a high quality dog food. A grain should not be in the first couple ingredients ingredient (corn and such are mainly fillers, dogs don’t digest it well). Avoid foods that have a lot of "by products" listed.

Here is an article about byproducts:

And an article on what ingredients to avoid:

Some GOOD foods are :
* Merrick –
* Solid Gold –
* Canidae –
* Timberwolf –
* Orijen –
* Wellness –
* Chicken Soup brand –
* Blue Buffalo –
* Innova –
* Innova EVO –

Or check this website for good foods:
(I recommend only feeding foods rated 4, 5, or 6 stars. Anything 3 stars or less, I would stay away from.)

Stay away from grocery stores brands. They are low-quality foods chalk full of fillers, preservatives, dyes, etc.. (Grocery store foods are those like Beneful, Old Roy, Alpo, Pedigree, Purina, etc.)

Beware "premium" foods. "Premium" does not mean good nutritionally, and is not a nutritionally high quality food. It has the same types of ingredients as grocery store foods, just a bit better quality of those not-so-good ingredients. (Premium foods are those like Iams, Eukanuba, Science Diet, etc..)

Another thing to be wary of: A lot of vets will recommend what they sell in their office. They get profit from the brands they keep on their shelves, that’s why they push it. Truth is, vet schools don’t focus a lot on nutrition. It’s not saying that a vet is a bad vet because he recommends those foods, a lot of vets just are told "this is good food", so they pass the message along without proper nutrition knowledge. Also, some dog food brands (like Hills) support vet schools, so vets have heard of it from the time they start college, which makes them think it’s good as well.

Higher quality food may seem more expensive at first, but it evens out. The higher quality the food, the less fillers eaten (and therefore the less poop comes out the other end). Your dog eats more to try to get the nutrition it needs, and most of the food just passes right on through. Also, it will make your animals healthier, so you save money on vet bills in the long run.

"Big box" petstores like Petco and Petsmart rarely have quality foods. (I do believe that PetCo sells "Solid Gold" brand, which is a quality food, but most of the foods aren’t.)

Also, grocery stores and Walmart aren’t good places to buy food either.

Your best bets for getting quality dog food are:
– small, locally owned petstores
– dog boutiques
– farm supply stores

When switching foods, do it gradually. I do this over about a two week timespan:
25% food A, 75% food B
50% food A, 50% food B
75% food A, 25% food B
100% food A

How can i make this recipe healthier…?

1 tbsp vegetable oil
16 good-quality pork and herb sausages
2 large onions, sliced
2 celery sticks, chopped
12 rashers smoked streaky bacon, chopped
2 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp tomato purée
330ml bottle Guinness
300ml beef stock, hot
250g chestnut mushrooms, halved
3 tbsp fresh parsley leaves, to garnish

Per serving:
39g fat (13g saturated)
21.1g protein
16.9g carbs
5.7g sugar
3.6g salt

I’ve already taken out the bacon…not sure how that will reduce the salt and fat content. I like the idea of the guiness for flavour and its good for iron (thats my story and im sticking to it!) I also plan to use reduced fat sausage, wll probably half the sausage amount and up the veg amount instead as well…but not sure about how this will effect calories etc…

Overall i like traditional foods but my boyfriend and i are going on a healthy food kick and trying to put more veg in our diet…any advice or similar recipies would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

Try these substitutions:
-use turkey sausage (I would keep same amount since you cut out the bacon)
-use low-fat, sodium-free beef broth
-use olive oil

I’m not familiar with stout, but do they have light version of this?

You can add more veggies – carrots sound good with this.

Add salt after the cooking, if you need it.

Hey Ladies, which of these foods do you prefer on a cold, snowy day…?

(Long Q, please feel free to SKIP if uninterested. If it doesn’t apply to you, please do NOT feel compelled to answer the question since it’s NOT compulsory, ESPECIALLY when it doesn’t apply).

•Chicken with Garlic Sauce & Brown Rice
•Malaysian style Green Curry Chicken & Brown Rice
•Fish & Chips
•Pie & Mash
•New England Clam Chowder
•Copious Fried shrimp
•Good quality Paella
•Southern Style Pulled Pork with biscuits & mashed ‘taters
•A wonderful Sushi spread
•A nice cheeseburger with lots of interesting fixin’s, e.g. mushrooms, bacon, onions, lettuce tomato (whatever you like)
•A buttered Kaiser Roll

*NB: Please do not engage in the use of profanity as it makes me uncomfortable. Please do not ask questions in your response, if there’s ambiguity in the question, please skip it. Please don’t reiterate portion(s) of the question as I’m quite familiar with the question I’ve asked (errors with spelling, syntax and/or punctuation are unintentional but shouldn’t detract from the question’s intent, so any attempt to reiterate a portion of the question will, invariably, be construed as condescending and consistent with how poorly modern Feminists view men. Additionally, please refrain from ad hominem attacks or the usual litany of unprovoked attacks that modern Feminists make toward men, foreigners or whomever they decide is beneath them.

How funny that you ask this tonight of all nights. It has not gotten above 20 degrees here all day, and I am currently anticipating approximately 8 to 11 inches of snow–supposed to start in about 2 hours. I have been slow cooking a wonderful venison and cider stew on the wood stove since 5 a.m. It smells wonderful and will go well with the bread I made this afternoon. Stews. soups and chowders are my favorites for cold snowy evenings. I have given you star for your qualifier about the Paella–not all Paella is created equal–it is a dish that can be monumentally effed up if one does not know what they are doing. Good question
