With a cunning which is typical of the species, the fox dreamed up by the novelist Tracy Chevalier has disguised itself as a Siamese cat. It plans to insinuate itself into the house of a cat-loving family, live on a rich diet of meaty chunks, and snooze on its mistress’s lap while attempting to give a convincing impression of a purr. The only flaw in the fox’s masterplan is that oversized tail, which may lead to its unmasking.
About Slightly Famous People’s Foxes
In 2014 we wanted to celebrate our tenth anniversary in a way which might help a good cause. The result was a little book, Slightly Famous People’s Foxes, an original gallery of vulpine characters you’d be astonished to find poking around your dustbins, all kindly donated by friends of Slightly Foxed and brought to order by Oliver Pritchett, well known for his witty columns in the Sunday Telegraph.
All profits from the sale of the book (approximately £5,000) were donated to the Children’s Hospital School at Great Ormond Street which allows children to continue their education while they are there. To raise more money for the school the original fox drawings were auctioned in April 2015.
