Juniper also has another fox around to love! This is her younger brother Fig!
And if Fig weren't enough, their family expands with the introduction of Elmwood!
At first, Juniper didn't take to little Elmwood. Luckily, it wasn't long before she decided he was her baby.
"Juniper loved Fig when he was a baby, so I assumed this baby would be the same. She stepped into her roll of becoming a mother to Fig almost instantly, so why would this one be any different?
It actually took days of quick interactions before Juniper decided the baby wasn't so bad. Every time he would come near her she would lunge and for those first few days I thought we may have to adopted him out instead of keeping him.
After Juniper regularly started pinning the baby I noticed that he was much more hesitant to get in her face or invade her space. As he started to calm down around her, she started to become more accepting. So even though these "attacks" looked terrifying she was actually just setting some boundaries. (Something babies of any species don't really understand)
You can see this behavior even in dogs, where the adults will often snap or pin a puppy. A lot of people mistake this for aggression, but most of the time it's just them teaching a pup some common dog manners. Overexcited greeting and getting all up in a stranger's face isn't polite!
Now, Elmwood is HER baby. She constantly watches over him, feeds him, plays with him, and makes sure Fig doesn't get too rough with his new baby brother." - juniperfoxx
