Rocklin, CA – A California woman recently rescued what she believed was an adorable kitten. But it didn’t take long before she realized the error of her ways. The Rocklin Police Department said:

  1. That little black fox kit sure looks like a real puppy. Is not that fox kit puppy? No? It’s really black fox kit? Why kit? instead of pup? Huh? It’s truly adorable!! Love it!! I always love dogs/cats & all different wildlife animals & all different sea animals, turtles, etc. Every kind of all different animals is truly adorable!! All birds, too! I don’t like to see spiders, snakes, but they are our Heavenly Father’s creatures.
