It is common for foxes to build ‘dens’ in gardens and one of the most popular places is under a shed although they will excavate the earth if they need too. They shouldn’t cause any problems being there and it will be wonderful to have such a good view of them when they are most active at dawn and dusk.
If they breed the cubs may play in the garden and have also been known to steal toys. Make sure there are no lose pieces of netting or fencing that the foxes could get tangled in and they should be fine. If you are thinking of feeding your foxes that is ok as they won’t become dependant as there is always plenty of other food for them. They will eat most things but being carnivores meet is best.
There shouldn’t be any problems between your cats and the fox as the two normally would avoid each other as a foxes range in an urban environment could contain up to100 cats. However, if there is an argument cats normal come off best!
