This fluffy little girl is the last one left in the area of a family of 7 kits born in the local den. Their Dad was hit by a car in July; thankfully they were well looked after by their rather shy mother. The rest of the kits dispersed during July and August, leaving just two hanging around home, a male and a female. Sadly, 2 weeks ago, the young male was also hit by a car and killed, leaving this young female alone. I sure hope she makes it OK; I think she will, she's a bit more cautious and timid than her brother was.
