An Unexpected Dinner Guest

I have an amazingly beautiful home listed just south of Nixa at 386 Plumtree Dr., that is surrounded by gorgeous woods and scenery.

Tonight, I received the following email from my seller:

I was cooking steaks on the grill tonight.  I went out to check them and this guy was staring at me when I opened the door then ran off.  I told the family about him and they came out to look and he happened to be coming back up the stairs.  I grabbed the camera and when I got back he was sitting out in the grass posing for us.  He stayed around for a while so we shared some leftover Thanksgiving turkey with him.  See the attached photos of our guest and new friend. He's an amazing guy!!!! 

 

Red fox

 

Red Fox

This is highly unusual considering red fox are very shy of humans.  This one obviously is a fan of my seller's cooking.  About a month ago I received a call from another agent telling me that there was trash strung out across the seller's lawn.  I thought this was unusual considering my seller doesn't have any pets.  I'll bet I know who the culprit is now.
